Snickerdoodle Cookie Cake will be the cake you'll go crazy for. For the snickerdoodle lover in your house!
Oh man, I could hardly contain my excitement to share this cake with you! You see, I’m a big fan of snickerdoodle cookies, and I’ve married a few of my favorite recipes with this Snickerdoodle Cookie Cake. Plus we all know that fall will be here before you know it, and let’s face it, these flavors are great for fall.
The inspiration for this cake actually came from a friend of mine, who asked me if I’ve ever made my famous Snickerdoodle Coffee Cake Cupcakes as a cake. I had actually not tried that before, but being that this recipe actually starts with a box mix, I gave her a few suggestions and asked her to let me know if she gave it a try. The following weekend I thought, “gee, I should be making this cake!” So off I went to try the recipe.
I’ve made several adjustments to the cupcake recipe, but perhaps the most important change is that I’ve added crushed Snickerdoodle Cookies. I have a favorite recipe that I made, especially for this cake, and then gifted the leftover cookies to some friends. You can certainly buy some cookies if you’d like, or pick up a boxed mix for the cookies. I always think fresh backed cookies are best!
For this cake, I added an extra egg white to help make the cake a bit fluffier since I knew I would be cutting the layers in half. I also chose to use buttermilk instead of regular milk for the cake batter. I love the richness of the buttermilk. If you don’t feel like buying buttermilk, you could definitely use regular milk.
When it comes time to make the frosting, time and patience is key. I beat the butter until it lighter in color, for 3 to 5 minutes before adding the powdered sugar. Once all the ingredients are added and blended, I usually beat the frosting for another 2 to 3 minutes for some extra air in the frosting.
I’ve got all types of tips and tools for frosting a smooth cake like I did with my Valentine’s Day Cake. Luckily for this cake, you don’t need it quite as smooth and perfect because you’re filling it with cookies!
So let’s get this straight. I am giving you permission to eat cake AND cookies for dessert with this Snickerdoodle Cookie Cake.
