Snickerdoodle Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting

on February 21, 2012

Snickerdoodle cookies are my favorite cookies of all time, so I figured I’d have to expand on this. I decided to try making a Snickerdoodle Cake with Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting. I couldn’t find a recipe anyplace, so I took the cookie recipe and combined it with a boxed cake recipe.

Snickerdoodle Cake


  • vegetable shortening for greasing the pans
  • Flour for dusting the pan
  • 1 package (16 oz) of yellow cake mix
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 8 tbsp (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
First prep your pan with shortening and flour, and pre-heat your oven per package directions.
Mix the rest of the ingredients together with a hand mixer or with a stand mixture, then poor into the bunt pan (can make any type of cake really, just follow package directions for each type of pan)
For the bunt cake I baked at 350 degrees for 33 minutes. Test the cake with a toothpick, and if it comes out clean, it’s ready. Let cool for about 15 minutes before removing from the pan.
And now for my favorite part… the Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting!

Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting


  • 4 ounces cream cheese,
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 4 cups confectioners’ sugar
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Cream the cream cheese & butter until smooth. Add the milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and sugar. Mix till smooth.


This was da bomb diggity. That’s all I’m gonna say. Make this!

It’ll make you wanna do this.

and this

Okay. No more baking for me. There has been way too much sugar in this house! Off to do pilates/run/weights, and the to relax and watch the Real Housewives of the OC and New Girl. G’night!
