Recipe Tips:

  • Filling Pan – When adding the snickerdoodle batter to the loaf pan, make sure to not overfill it. You want to give room for the bread to expand as it bakes.
  • Preparing Loaf Pan – For best results to remove the bread, make sure to spray with cooking spray. This helps for cleanup too. You can also line the loaf pan with parchment paper.
  • Combining Ingredients – Make sure to not overmix the snickerdoodle bread batter. You want to combine ingredients until they are mixed together.
  • Cool Completely – We recommend letting the bread cool completely before slicing.
  • Check for doneness – To make sure the bread is completely cooked. Use a toothpick to check to make sure bread is baked completely. If it comes out clean then bread is baked.

Variation Ideas:

  • Mini Loaf Pans – To make this bread into smaller sizes, pour the batter into mini loaf pans. This is the perfect size to give out as gifts to friends and family.
  • Muffins – I love making muffins with this recipe. They are the perfect size to enjoy with my morning coffee.
  • Cinnamon Chips – Some recipes show the addition of cinnamon chips. They are not always available year round at grocery stores. But they do add extra cinnamon flavor to the bread.
  • White Chocolate Chips – For added flavor mix in white chocolate chips to the bread batter. You can even add in chocolate chips if you prefer. Another option would be to add in butterscotch chips or toffee chips.
  • Greek Yogurt – If you are looking for a healthier option, substitute sour cream with Greek Yogurt. You will not be able to tell the difference.

Can I Prepare Ahead of Time?

Yes, you can prepare this bread ahead of time. You can prepare the batter and bake it to give it time to cool before serving.

Another option is to prepare the batter and place it in the fridge. Make sure to cover the batter while storing. We recommend baking the bread within a day or 2.

You can also freeze the bread if you prefer. Prepare and bake the bread as the recipe indicates. After the bread has cooled, wrap the bread in plastic wrap and then foil.

Store the bread in the freezer for up to 3 months. When you are ready to enjoy, allow the bread to thaw to enjoy.
