  • 2 ¼ cup all-purpose flour
  • cup granulated sugar
  • 1 ½ teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cream of tartar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 extra-large eggs at room temperature
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 tablespoon buttermilk
  • cup vegetable oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Cinnamon Sugar Filling and Topping

  • cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon ground cinnamon


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spray a 9x5 loaf pan with baking spray and set it aside.
  • Using a medium-size mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking soda, cream of tartar, and salt. Set it aside.
  • Using a small mixing bowl, whisk together the eggs, buttermilk, vegetable oil, and vanilla.
  • Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Stir until well incorporated.
  • Using a small mixing bowl, stir together the granulated sugar and the cinnamon.
  • Spoon ⅓ of the batter into the prepared loaf pan.
  • Evenly sprinkle 3 tablespoons of the cinnamon-sugar mixture on top of the batter.
  • Repeat the layering until the last ⅓ of the batter has been spooned in. Evenly sprinkle the remaining cinnamon sugar on top of the batter.
  • Bake for 50 to 55 minutes, until a toothpick inserted comes away clean.
  • Allow the snickerdoodle bread to cool slightly before removing it from the loaf pan and transferring it to a cooling rack to cool completely.


PRO TIP: ​​You can line the loaf pan with parchment paper “wings” before spraying with baking spray to help lift it out of the loaf pan.
PRO TIP: When inverting the bread from the pan, I recommend doing it over a paper towel so the cinnamon-sugar doesn’t make a mess. 
PRO TIP: The longer the loaf of snickerdoodle bread sits, the more moist the slices will be.
