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.

Description

Snickerdoodle bundt cake is perfectly golden and cinnamon-spiced! Layered with a delicious cinnamon-sugar ribbon, this easy bundt tastes like snickerdoodle cookies.


Ingredients

Cake

  • 2 1/2 cups flour
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1 1/4 cups sugar
  • 10 Tbsp unsalted butter, at room temperature
  • 2 large eggs, at room temperature
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup low-fat buttermilk, at room temperature

Ribbon

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup light brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon

Topping

  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp cinnmon
  • 2 Tbsp unsalted butter, melted

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F and generously butter and flour a 10-cup bundt pan. Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium bowl.
  2. Beat butter and sugar in a large mixer bowl on medium speed until pale and fluffy. Reduce speed to low and add eggs one at a time; mix in vanilla. Beat in flour mixture in three additions, alternating with buttermilk (begin and end with flour mixture), just until incorporated.
  3. Spoon half the batter batter into prepared bundt pan and smooth with an offset spatula. Tap pan sharply to reduce air bubbles. For the ribbon, combine sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon. Sprinkle evenly over the cake batter. Spoon remaining batter evenly over the cinnamon-sugar layer and carefully smooth with an offset spatula. Tap pan sharply again to reduce air bubbles.
  4. Bake for 40 to 44 minutes, until cake is golden, springs back to the touch, and a tester inserted in the center comes out clean or with a few crumbs attached. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes; carefully invert onto rack.
  5. Place rack with cake over a piece of wax 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. Store leftovers in an airtight container up to 2 days.

  1. I was so smitten with the idea of a snickerdoodle-inspired bundt that I baked this tonight after seeing the recipe go up! It is heavenly — a tender and perfectly moist crumb that’s just the right amount of fluffy-but-substantial to still hold up to the cinnamon sugar swirl. With the use of buttermilk, it’s got the classic, gentle tang of a coffee cake, but a less-sweet, more-tender version as a bundt. The whole family dug in at 10pm because the smell was too tantalizing to wait. I’ll be adding this to the rotation of classics!
