Snickerdoodle bread is a grown up way to enjoy the yummy, cinnamon-laced snickerdoodle cookies that we all know and love.
My sweet friend Judy gave me this recipe for Snickerdoodle bread. I had never heard of such a bread, but she told me it was out of this world (and it is)! It really is decadent and addictive. It reminds me of a cinnamon flavored pound cake.
The bread calls for cinnamon chips which are seasonal but appear on many store shelves in the Fall (particularly Wal-Mart). White chocolate chips could be used, or you could make the bread without chips. It will still be sweet and yummy and will have far fewer calories:-)
I made one regular loaf and three small loaves, and my large loaf “fell” in the middle because I removed it from the oven too soon. I actually prefer this bread in smaller size, using these miniature loaf pans. My husband and I ate half the loaf, including the ooey gooey center! It tasted like a molten lava snickerdoodle and was SO good! That being said, I will use a toothpick or cake tester next time to ensure that the bread is done.
Note: Judy said that she takes her bread from the oven before it is completely done so that it won’t be dry. The toothpick should have crumbs but still be slightly moist. As with all baked goods, it will continue cooking a bit after removing from oven.

2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder

1 1/2 cups cinnamon chips (most of one 10-ounce bag; white chocolate chips may be substituted or chips may be omited)

Pre-heat over to 350F.
Spray 2 regular loaf pans or 4 miniature loaf pans with floured cooking spray (Baker's Joy is best).
