Do you enjoy snickerdoodle cookies? We sure do at our house! There’s just something about that sugar and cinnamon combo that pushes all my buttons! One of my favorite treats growing up was Cinnamon Toast… yum!

Now imagine if you will, a cinnamon sugar topped bread loaf with great traditional snickerdoodle flavor, and it’s filled with cinnamon chips! Oh my goodness… it’s delicious!

I found the original recipe online about six years ago, and want to share it with you today. The recipe (as written) will make two 9×5″ loaves, but you can also use the batter to make five small loaves (5¾ x 3¼ x 2½).

This bread freezes well (if wrapped airtight), so you can save several loaves for later. The small mini-loaves also make wonderful gifts for friends or family!

It is really quite simple to make, and cinnamon chips can be found in many grocery stores or can easily be ordered online. Here’s how to make this delicious bread:

Make the Bread Batter

While you make the batter, remember to preheat your oven to 350°F, and spray the loaf pans with non-stick baking spray (with flour). Okay… let’s get this party started!

Whisk flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt together in a medium sized bowl. Once combined, set the bowl aside until later.

Flour, baking powder, salt and cinnamon are whisked together in large bowl.

Use an electric mixer to cream butter and sugar together in a large bowl. Mix for about two minutes, until the batter becomes light and fluffy. Now add 4 eggs, ONE AT A TIME, beating each one into the batter before adding the next one.

Add sour cream and vanilla extract to the batter, and beat until combined. Now add the flour mixture to the batter, a little at a time, beating on low as you add it.

Mix the flour in only until incorporated, being careful to not overmix the batter.

Butter, sugar and eggs are beaten until very smooth with an electric mixer.Sour cream and vanilla extract are added to the snickerdoodle bread batter.Flour and other dry ingredients are added to the batter for the snickerdoodle bread and combined.

Time To Add The Cinnamon Chips!

Now it’s time to add the cinnamon chips to the batter. Before adding them, place the chips in a small bowl with 2 Tablespoons flour and gently stir until lightly covered.

This will help the cinnamon chips to be distributed evenly through the bread and not drop to the bottom of the loaf while baking.

STIR the flour-coated cinnamon chip mixture into the snickerdoodle bread batter until fully incorporated. At this point it will be a fairly thick dough.

Cinnamon chips are tossed in flour before adding them to the bread batter.After adding the cinnamon chips, the batter is stirred until fully combined.

Prepare The Bread For Baking

Divide the dough evenly between the bread pans. In large (9″ x 5″) pans, the pans will be a little less than halfway full. If you’re using mini loaf pans (5¾” x 3¼”), they shouldn’t be more than 2/3 full.

Now it’s time to make the cinnamon sugar topping! Mix 2 Tablespoons granulated sugar and 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon in a small bowl until combined.

Sprinkle this mixture lightly over the top of the loaves to cover.

Batter for the snickerdoodle bread is divided into loaf pans.Each of the loaves is topped with cinnamon sugar mixture before baking.

Bake The Snickerdoodle Bread

Place the loaves on the middle rack of a preheated oven. Bake large loaves at 350°F for 55-65 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the top/center comes out clean.

If you’re making small mini-loaves, bake for 35-40 minutes, then test for doneness.Transfer the pans to a wire rack, and let the loaves cool at least 10-15 minutes BEFORE attempting to remove the bread.

Run a butter knife around the edges of the pans, then invert the pan to remove the bread. Place the loaves on a wire rack, and let them cool completely before slicing and serving.
