Snickerdoodle bundt cake is perfectly golden and cinnamon-spiced! Layered with a delicious cinnamon-sugar ribbon, this easy bundt bakes up fluffy with plenty of rich vanilla flavor.
Brush the warm cake with melted butter and shower with cinnamon-sugar for the taste of freshly baked snickerdoodles! I love this cake with a side of vanilla ice cream, and leftovers make the very best breakfast. 🙂
Perfect Snickerdoodle Bundt Cake
Room Temperature Ingredients – Bring butter, eggs, and buttermilk to room temperature before beginning.
Bundt Pan – Use a 10-cup bundt pan for this recipe. To prevent the cake from sticking, generously butter and flour the pan.
Cinnamon Swirl – To create the swirl, spoon half of the cake batter into the prepared bundt pan. Smooth the batter with an offset spatula and tap the pan sharply to reduce air bubbles. Sprinkle evenly with cinnamon-sugar mixture. Spoon the remaining cake batter evenly over the cinnamon-sugar layer, carefully smoothing with an offset spatula. Tap the pan sharply again to reduce air bubbles.
Baking Time – Bake cake until golden and the top springs back to the touch. A tester inserted in the center should come out with a few crumbs attached. Your baking time may vary depending on the shape of your bundt pan, so start testing for doneness after 40 minutes.
Topping – Place cooling rack with warm cake over a piece of wax paper or parchment paper. Combine sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Brush warm cake with melted butter and sprinkle generously with cinnamon-sugar. Let cake cool completely before serving.
