Snickerdoodle Bread

This Snickerdoodle Bread is so delicious and easy (no yeast involved)! It’s filled with cinnamon chips and topped with cinnamon and sugar!

If I’m going to make homemade bread, I do prefer a quick bread over one that requires yeast. Most quick breads are sweet, and especially this one has the same cinnamon-y flavor found in a snickerdoodle cookie!

No yeast involved!

I about died when my mom tried out this new recipe for Snickerdoodle Bread. She found the recipe, made a few modifications, and it was a huge hit. We love it so much, we’ve made it at least two dozen times since then.

If you like bread and you like Snickerdoodles, you will definitely LOVE this recipe! The good news is that it doesn’t involve yeast. I’m not a yeast expert, which means I can easily handle this bread recipe, no problem.

The bad news? Cinnamon chips are usually only seasonal and can be found at most grocery stores during the holidays. Although few stores carry them the rest of the year, you can always order them online at the Hershey’s Store. Having said that, be sure to stock up when you do see them!

How to Make Snickerdoodle Bread

You won’t believe how simple this recipe is!!

Wet Ingredients. Cream butter, sugar, salt and cinnamon until fluffy. Add eggs and mix well. Add vanilla and sour cream and mix well.

Dry Ingredients. Mix flour and baking powder in a separate bowl. Add to wet ingredients and mix until all combined. Add cinnamon chips and stir into batter. Set aside. Spoon batter into 4 mini loaf pans until about ⅔ full.

Topping. Mix 3 tablespoons sugar and ½ tablespoon cinnamon in a bowl and sprinkle over the batter in each loaf pan. Bake at 350 for 35-40 minutes. Let cool before removing from pan

Recipe Tips

  • Don’t over fill the pan: “If the batter reaches the top of the pan and still needs to rise, it will collapse”
  • Check the expiration of your baking powder and soda. Stale leavening agents can cause the bread to fall in the center. 
  • Adjust the temp and cook time according to the pan type. Glass and stoneware tend to retain heat more than metal pans. (reduce oven by 25° when using stone or glass)
  • Be sure your oven temperature is accurate
  • Make adjustments for high altitude
  • Get a good rise by only greasing the bottom and lower 1” of the pan. This will allow the batter to “cling” to the top portion of the pan.
  • A crack down the middle is a good sign the bread is baking properly.
  • Don’t overmix, or allow the batter to stand for too long before baking.

  • This recipe makes 4-6 mini loaves depending on the size of pan you use. You can also use the small aluminum pans and make 5 loaves.
  • For a Gluten-Free version please visit Suburban Prairie Homemaker
  • It can be made in 2 large loaf pans. Bake at 350° for about 60-70 minutes (until a toothpick inserted comes out clean).
  • Cinnamon Chips are a seasonal item. You can find them at online OR if you are in AZ, Albertson’s usually carries them (woo hoo!!)
  • If you can’t find cinnamon chips, many readers have tried TOFFEE CHIPS or WHITE CHOCOLATE CHIPS and said they turned out great!!
  • For a healthier version, you can substitute the sour cream for greek vanilla yogurt.
  • You can make these as muffins (makes about 2 dozen) – bake for about 20 minutes.

Can I make the batter ahead of time and bake later? Yes, prepare the batter according to the recipe. Cover the bowl and store in the fridge for up to 24 hours. Because the batter has been chilled, you may need to bake it a few extra minutes. 

How do I store snickerdoodle bread? Store covered at room temperature for 4-5 days. Storing in the fridge will will add a couple more day to the shelf life. For longer storage wrap the loaves individually with plastic wrap then again with foil and freeze for up to 3 months.

As I mentioned, this bread is quite addicting. If you are a fan of cinnamon and sugar (or know someone that is), then you gotta try this. I highly recommend it, and have yet to meet someone who didn’t like this recipe. 😉

  1. Your bread looks fabulous! So glad it was a huge hit. We love it too. Thanks for linking to my original recipe.

  2. Looks delicious Kristyn! I’ve made Snickerdoodle Blondies that look similar, so I’ll have to give this a try. Totally pinning it! 🙂

    1. Oooohhh… Snickerdoodle Blondies. Those sound delish!! Can you send me the recipe if you ever get a chance? Thx! 🙂

    2. I don’t know if you’re subscirbing to replies- but if you are can I get on the list for that snickerdoodle blondie recipe? I’m googling now but would love to know a tried and true one! (

          I made this snickerdoodle bread yesterday and was so shocked that all 4 mini loafs fell! My husband is still loving it! It’s not Baked in the center. Its more like a breAd pudding. I followed the recipe. any idea what went wrong?

          1. Mine have always fallen. If you figure this out, please let me know. I hate that they don’t stay risen properly. I did change the recipe and use 6 mini loaf pans and it helped a bit. They were cooked through but definitely not as pretty as those pictured.

          2. 4 stars
            They don’t rise up like bana bread does. I made the recipe in 3 mini loaF pans and cover with foil half way thr baking. That helped them to get done in the middle

  3. Where would one find Cinnamon chips? I live in Santa Cruz Ca and cannot find them anywhere that I have looked. I have found several recipes lately that I really want to try that need these and I am becoming desperate 🙂 Help!

    1. Hi Julie! Sorry you haven’t been able to find these. They should be in the baking aisle of your local grocery store, but it sounds like you’ve checked there. Have you also checked Walmart?

    2. You can also find them here ——

        1. This bread looks great! Also, I buy my cinnamon chips from the awesome Prepared Pantry online when they’re 50% off. They’re DELICIOUS. 🙂 Thanks for the recipe!!!

          1. Also, they’re not “seasonal” at prepared pantry, btw…I’ve purchased them throughout the year there.:)

          2. Good to know! Thanks, Danielle. Do they have a certain time they always put them on sale for 50% off?

          3. They go on sale fairly often from what I’ve seen. I saw them on sale 2xs since Christmas I believe. Right now the 11 oz bag is 3.99, however, there’s shipping to calculate. I just am sure to purchase when there are other things I want that are also on sale so my shipping “worth it.” 🙂

    3. 3 stars
      I’m frustrated.
      I have made this bread multiple times and it never fails, it sinks in the middle. It looks terrible and I want to be able to give it away. I’ve had it work one time. All of my ingredients are fresh and not expired. I have checked the temperature of my oven and it is correct.

      I have used the King Arthur Cinnamon baking chips and they are great. Butterscotch chips are killer. I need help on what I can do to keep it from sinking in the middle!!!!! Help!!!!!!

  4. Oooo…. I love Snickerdoodles! I once tried a recipe I found for Snickerdoodle muffins and they were a big flop. I’m super excited to try this. Thanks!!

  5. 5 stars
    This looks amazing! I bet it would make a great muffin recipe, too! I am going to try to make them gluten free for us. Thanks for sharing such a wonderful recipe!

      1. 5 stars
        I made this using King Arthur Gluten-Free Measure for Measure flour, and it turned out great! that flour product has xanthum gum which helped give this bread a fantastic texture. It made 2 regular sized loaves. So yummy!! Thank you, thank you!!

    1. Not only does it look DELISH, but it tastes DELISH. This is definitely a recipe you will want to keep and make over and over again. 🙂

    1. Hi Vicky! SO glad you like it. You must definitely try it. I promise you won’t be disappointed. Thanks for stopping by. XO 🙂

  6. This looks amazing!! I definitely just pinned this to my deliciousness board! I wish the hubby wasn’t on a diet so I could make this asap! =)

  7. This sounds like an amazing bread to bake. I’ve never tried cinnamon chips before. Do you like them?
    Saw you at Saturday Seven Party.

    1. Cinnamon chips are amazing!! Just finding out though that they are seasonal items at some stores. Although, they are seasonal you can find them at several online shops. 🙂

    1. You’re welcome, and thank you for pinning. Not only does this recipe sound delish, but it IS delish!! If you love snickerdoodle cookies, you will definitely love this bread too! XO

      1. I have my ingredients all lined up and ready to bake!!! I was interested in making this recipe in a full sized loaf pan, too. I noticed in the link you posted to the original recipe (@ she used more baking powder, vanilla and sour cream. I’m curious, did you find the quanties you listed (less of each) to work better or change the texture?

  8. Wow – that’s looks so good…two slices and a glass if milk, please!

    I’m a New follower! Saw your Feature at Creations by Kara!

    Love your site!

    Cheers ~ Mary

  9. We have been making this for years. Only we call it sour cream coffee cake and make it in an angel food cake pan.
    We don’t add the cinnamon chips, instead we put half the batter in the pan, sprinkle cinnamon and sugar on top and
    then the rest of the batter. I will have to try the cinnamon chips. I do have one question, why did you make the changes to the
    recipe? I’m just curious.

    1. You’ll have to send the recipe – sounds great!! I always make a few changes to recipes, just depending on what I like or what I think is good. For example, I don’t like a ton of sour cream so I decreased that but added more Cinnamon and Sugar cuz that’s my fav. 🙂

  10. Mmmmmm!!!!! Featuring this at tonights par-tay, Kristyn!
    PS: Do you ship to Yuma? Pretty sure I’d love some freshly baked snickerdoodle bread 😉 jk!

    1. Thx, chica!! And maybe one of these days I’ll send you a loaf. Or better yet, you can just move back and I’ll bring you a loaf every month!! 😉

  11. I wanted to make this tonight and forgot I don’t have bread pans. Would this work as muffins? Also could I skip the cinnamon chips?

    Hi Kristyn,

    Thank you SO much for sharing this recipe! I made these today as soon as I saw the recipe on Pinterest (I’m just a little obsessed with that site, hehe) and they were Delicious! I am posting them on my blog tonight and will definitely give you the credit for such a wonderful recipe. I can’t wait to try more recipes.
    Thanks again,

    1. Yay!! So glad you were able to make it, and that you loved it!! Send me the link so I can check it out. Have a great day! XO

    Hey Lil’ Luna –
    I found your recipe on Pinterest and couldn’t wait to try it. I seriously love snickerdoodle cookies, so I was excited to try the bread. It came out fine following your instructions. I couldn’t find the cinnamon chips either, so I bought Heath Bar toffee chips instead, and it came out great. The chocolate flavor is a nice addition, and the toffee is a complimentary flavor to the cinnamon sugar. Just a thought for your fans who can’t find the cinnamon chips.

    1. Thanks for the suggestion, Bonnie. I know the cinnamon chips can be seasonal (you can find them online year long but I know people usually don’t want to have to wait for them). Toffee would be a great substitute – will have to try it out! Thanks again, and have a great day! 🙂

  14. I’m really looking forward to making this recipe, yet when I was at the store today gathering the ingredients I didn’t find cinnamon chips. I asked the manager if they sold them…thinking and hoping I had overlooked them. He checked on it and said it was a seasonal product. This being almost March, he said they are in stock starting in October. What do you suggest in place of the cinnamon chips? Thanks so much!

  15. 5 stars
    Oh my goodness! I am a snickerdoodle fanatic….AND a cinnamon chip fanatic! And when I saw THIS recipe….I thought I might have died and gone to heaven….but no, that didn’t happen – until I ate it! So good! I couldn’t even wait for it to cool! I burned the roof of my mouth! haha! My hubby already things I hoard cinnamon chips….I hate to let my pantry get below a dozen bags….so he’s going to think I’m nuts when I buy even more so I can make this bread all.the.time! Fabulous recipe! Thank you…thank you…thank you!!!

  16. Can you double this recipe and bake it in regular size loaf pans? It sounds so good! Snicker doodles are my favorite cookies. This sounds like a great alternative.

  17. Hello, this looks delicious!! I was just wondering where you got the cinnamon chips from? I went to HEB (grocery store in Texas) and could not find them. Thanks!

    1. We got them at the local store but they are only a seasonal item. Hershey’s and other companies sell them online though. 🙂

    1. Hmmmm, not sure. Every oven is different. We did this at my mom’s and I know her oven seems hotter than mine. How much longer did you have to cook it for?

  18. It looks great, but I don’t have mini loaf pans., only the regular-sized ones. If I use those, could I get two loaves and how long should I bake them? Thanks!

    1. If you look on the website that I got the recipe from she tells you how long to bake for regular pans. The website is called Barbara Bakes. 🙂

  19. Oh. My. Mouth! I’m drooling. Can NOT wait to make this. Now if only I could track down those cinnamon chips. I’ve never heard of them. Did you find them at a regular grocery store?

    1. Hi Dawn! Thank you so much. Unfortunately, the chips are a seasonal item and can only be found during the holidays (Thanksgiving & Christmas). There are several places to get them online but I would recommend getting them at the 🙂

  20. This is my husband’s favorite bread! He told me I MUST make this once a week! However, I don’t know if our waistlines would benefit from that. This bread is truely amazing! The last time I made it, I substituted honey vanilla greek yogurt for the sour cream because that was all I had on hand. I reduced the sugar since the greek yogurt was flavored. I couldn’t tell the difference, still delicious! Thank you!

    1. What a great tip to use yogurt instead of sour cream. If you’re making it once a week that may help the waistlines – lol! SO glad you like it. I’m out of cinnamon chips and need to order some to have on hand so I can make it all the time, it’s so good! Thanks for stopping by, and I hope you have a great day! XO

  21. Hi! Cant wait to try these but the 3T of sugar and 3T of cinnamon is that tablespoons or teaspoons??

    1. Oooooh, sounds delish!! Will need to try that out. Thanks! So glad you liked it. Happy Easter. 🙂

      1. I have never made snickerdoodles personally, although I have tried store bought ones in the past. I want to make this bread for my family (and me!) and I had a question. I see this calls for 4 “mini loaf pans” and I was just wondering if you knew the exact size. As of now, I have a loaf pans that I have used for meatloaf, but I am not sure if this is a regular size? Thanks in advance for you help!

          1. Sorry about that. Didn’t see your first comment in time to reply. Did you try it? If so, how was it? Would die for a slice right now. 😀

          2. No problem. The times didn’t show up exactly right anyways. I did try it, and it’s amazing! My mini loaf pans must have been smaller, so I made 5, and I had to cook them maybe 5 minutes longer, but sooo worth it! My family liked it, and I’m taking the rest to work tonight (so I don’t eat all of it!) Also, I saw the cinnamon chips were commented on a lot. I found mine at Hy-Vee, just in case anyone else asks about them.

          3. Thanks Michel! SO glad you liked the bread. And I’ve never heard of Hy-Vee is that a local store by you?

  22. Where would I find “Cinnamon chips”? I’ve looked in my local grocery stores but haven’t seen anything like it. Any suggestions?

    1. Hi Jolene!! Unfortunately, the cinnamon chips are only seasonal items. BOO, I know!! You can find them at several online shops though including Hope that helps. 🙂

  23. Is it just me being blind, or is there no flour in the ingredient list? How much flour does it take? Or am I totally missing it somewhere – which wouldn’t surprise me, but I have looked a few times,,,,,

    1. A few others didn’t see it either although I could see it on my side. Weird! Any who, it’s 2 1/2 cups flour 🙂

  24. I made these just Monday into muffins with the toffee chips and they are heavenly. They made 24 muffins and I cooked them for 20 minutes. I have to make more as I only have 4 muffins left and I am going to try butterscotch chips in these as I could not find the toffee at my local grocer.

    1. Ooooh, good to know! I hope others can see this and know they can do it as a muffin form. Thank you for all the info!! 😀

  25. I’m in the middle of making this. Where is the flour? And in your ingredients you list 3TB of cinnamon but in the directions you show 3t. of cinnamon to mix with the sugar. is it tablespoons or teaspoons?

    1. So sorry about that! Just edited the recipe this morning and apparently it was too early – I messed it up. It’s 3 TB sugar and 3 tsp. cinnamon. 🙂

  26. I just made these couldn’t get the cinnamon chip so I used butterscotch ones! It was amazing! I also made them into muffins. Tip I learned after the first batch use cupcake liners. They are not easy to get out of a well greased pan! Bake for 25 minutes. Perect portion control and great for teacher gifts. Thanks for sharing this amazing recipe!

    1. Great to know!! There were so many tips from readers that I may have to go back and add all those tips to this post. Thanks!! 😀

  27. @ Lil Luna – I didn’t see your comment until now, and yes, I actually forgot until you said something, but Hy-Vee is in Missouri and I think Iowa, and maybe Kansas.

  28. JUST finished making this! SO sooo good! I didn’t add any chips, but it still tastes amazing! Also, I hate sour cream and so I put in a 1/2 c of 2% milk instead because milk is thinner than sour cream. I also added about an 1/8 c of whipping cream just because. It still turned out perf – nice and moist on the inside and “crunchy” outside. Oh, I also didn’t put any sugar/cinnamon mix on the top. Yummm! THANKS!!

  29. This looks and sounds delicious!! I will give it a try without the cinnamon (or toffee) chips as my daughter is allergic to the soy in them.

  30. I made this today! It was so incrediblyYUMMY. I did bake it in a reg loaf pan, because that’s all I had. However it was perfect. I also added a little cream of tartar, only because real Snickerdoodles have it. Thank You so much for sharing this recipe. My family really enjoyed it.

  31. I make this in a 9×13 cake pan without the cinnamon chips and my family loves it. 🙂 My family calls it snickerdoodle cake and ask for it all the time. Thanks for the recipe.

  32. This is the GREATEST!!! My husband and I both LOVE it!!! You are right about the cinnamon chips, I looked every where and couldn’t find them but then I went into Harmons and there they were. Harmons has lots of things other stores don’t carry year round. YAY!!!

  33. Love this, my hubby loves snicker doodles its his favorite cookie and loves this bread, I made one large loaf and had enough batter left and make six muffins. I am now making it for the second time in 4 days. LOL he ate almost the whole loaf himself.

    1. LOL! I Love it. This recipe is seriously so good and a family fav. Glad to hear that your hubby enjoyed it as well! 😀

  34. My friend and I found this recipe on Pinterest and made it – it was AMAZING! We didn’t follow exact directions and we made one big loaf in a big bread pan and it took FOREVER to bake, haha! It was still delicious, but I would absolutely make it again with the three smaller bread pans as suggested in the recipe 🙂

    Thank you for this delicious recipe!

  35. This bread was a HUGE hit with everyone!!! I have already made it twice and am now making it a third time! So moist with tons of flavor! Thank you so much for posting this recipe!!!

  36. What a wonderful idea! I love snickerdoodles and these loaves look amazing! I absolutely have to try this recipe. Also, a loaf would make a wonderful holiday gift.

  37. Thanks for sharing! I have some in the oven right now and am excited to give them a try! I found the chips this summer at Hershey Park 🙂

  38. I don’t have the cinnamon chips, is it possible just to leave them out or will it completely alter the taste of the bread? Thanks! 🙂

  39. maybe this is a silly question, but I have to ask anyway.. i wanna make these today, want to do in mini loaf/bread pans (4) so do I have to bake each of them separte OR do I put them all in together for time suggested above.?

    1. Hi Taryan! Not a silly question at all… I would put them all in together, but that’s just me. Did you try it?

  40. I’ve never ever seen cinnamon chips. Now, I feel like I need to get out and look for them, haha. This snickerdoodle loaf looks so good, you’ve inspirred me to make them asap. That is, as soon as I can find some cinnamon chips, which is the only ingredient I’m missing right now! I love the cookie version but I imagine I will love this bread version just as much, if not more.

  41. OMG! So scrumptious! Found the chips this week at WalMart for about $2 a bag. Going back as you suggested to freeze for later! Thanks for the best recipe ever! Can;t wait to make it all through the holidays!

  42. I made this x 2 and both times it fell flat, the second tme it fell apart, what am I doing wrong? The second batch tastes great.

  43. This bread is so delicious! I’ve tried it a couple times. Dumb question… but do you have a trick to getting them out of the pans? I make tons of different mini loaves of bread, and they come out easy, but both times, these have broken in half. Thanks!

  44. I made muffins because I only have one loaf pan. This is just a test run for a Thanksgiving party, so I’ll let you know what all the taste testers say.

  45. This bread is amazingly good. Wanted to say that I accidentally doubled the amount of cinnamon when I was making this and it turned out great for a cinnamon lover like me. I am having the same of it falling apart – suggestions?

  46. I have been holding on to this recipe for a LONG time waiting for my local stores to sell cinnamon chips. FINALLY they have them!! So excited to try this for Thanksgiving morning :).

    1. Yay!! Let me know what you think of it and if you like it be sure to stock up on those cinnamon chips and freeze them so you have them for later!! 😀

      1. I am planning on switching from Christmas cookies to breads this year-and Snickerdoodles are my favorite! Stoked to try the bread, but can I freeze it? I hope so!!

  47. I was curious abou the same thing as a few other commenters! My mom made this bread for Thanksgiving and it was DIVINE! However, it didn’t rise a lot. I wondered if the 1 tsp baking powder vs. 2 tsp on Barbara Bakes makes any difference. Is there a reason you halved it?

  48. I finally found cinnamon chips and got so excited to make this! that I forgot to put them in. It’s still good without them, or with them melted on top 😉

  49. I made the snicker doodle bread and it was so good! Question: how many days will this be good for? I’m sure it will be gone in the next 3-4 days but is that too late? I’m pregnant so I would rather be safe than sorry…

  50. Hi! I made this tonight and while it was so delicious, when i went to take it out of the pan it crumbled into a million pieces! (Don’t worry, I told the hubs it was “snickerdoodle cobbler” and served it with ice cream ;)) I halved the recipe and put it into one loaf pan, idk if that would make a difference. I also added 15 minutes to the cooking time because it wasn’t done all the way at the hour mark. Any ideas?? I’d like to make it again!

  51. Love snickerdoodles so had to pin this and try it. I ended up with 5 mini loaves that baked for 38 minutes, could have been in even longer. Bread is tasty and moist. Thanks for sharing your creation!

  52. I have tried this reciepe two times now and it’s been taking an hour to fully bake in the oven. I must being doing something wrong…

    1. Made 18 mini loaves to give as gifts and a few to searve on Christmas day….A HUGE hit, to say the least! Everyone has been asking for the recipe. I need to go buy more cinnamon chips before they disappear from our HEB’s shelves. HEB was the only place that I could find them.

      1. LOVE to hear that!!! It is seriously such an easy and DELICIOUS bread recipe. So glad they were popular and everyone loved them. Thanks for stopping by to leave a comment – made my day!! XO

  53. This was fantastic! I didn’t have mini loaf pans, so I used two big ones and cooked for 50 minutes instead. One of them I made cinnamon and butterscotch chip. Both ways was really good. A true keeper.

    1. So glad it turned out well. I still haven’t tried the butterscotch chips so will have to do that soon. Have a great day! 😀

  54. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this bread. As a huge lover of the cookies, I knew that I would enjoy this however I didn’t expect to like it this much. Made it over the holidays and went back to the grocery store to stock up on the chips since I know that I’ll be making a whole lot more of it. Thanks so much for sharing this :).

  55. I made this a couple weeks ago and it was a big hit at home and work! I made two regular size loafs. I have two in the oven as I type. Thanks for the delicious recipe !! So easy too!

  56. I just made them and I LOVE them 🙂 I made them into muffins, which was perfect because these treats are a little rich and decadent (in the best way possible and not overwhelming at all!) which made them perfect for little bites. And I just love how soft and plush these were. So good!

  57. I made the snickerdoodle bread for Christmas for family and co workers. I found these cute mini ceramic bread pans at the Christmas tree store for $1.00 and baked the bread in them. They were an awesome hit and I got all kinds of compliments on the bread. I told everyone I got it from you and I will definately be baking it again!

    1. Hi LyRae! Thanks for the sweet comment. So glad these were a hit and that everyone loved it! It really is a simple and yummy bread, and I hope you can make it many more times! 😀

  58. I really want to know why you named this blog post, “Snickerdoodle Bread”.
    Anyway I really admired it!Thanks for the post,Lasonya

  59. Hi, I made this bread Saturday for my Sunday School class and I had some problems. I followed the recipe exactly but I needed 5 mini bread pans instead of 4. I bought the fail mini pans… there a different mini size because your’s look longer and flatter than mine? Also, the cinnamon to sugar ratio for the topping is was way to cinnamony. I cut the cinnamon in 1/2 and it still seemed a lot. It was way darker than your bread shows, just wondering if that was posted wrong. The bread was a little spongy and not very moist. It tasted pretty good but not what I expected. Any suggestions? Maybe if I had the wrong bread pans it had to bake too long because it was thicker? I sure love the concept, any help would be appreciated. Thank you!

    1. Update……I found the exact same recipe posted on pinterst by someone else, the only difference is 1 tsp. of baking powder instead of the 2 tsps. that you have posted. Is it possible you typed in a 2 instead of a 1? That seems like it might be the reason for the spongy texture. Just wondering

  60. Boy made these today found cinomen chips at albertsons this is to die for love it won’t last long in my house

  61. I had no trouble finding the cinnamon chips at ShopRite in northern NJ. I’m about to make this now! Thanks for sharing.

  62. Amazing effectiveness concerning doing this web-site. I really loved searching it again, and therefore may well return continually, seeking everything completely new.

  63. Found the cinnamon chips at Walmart this morning! Made the bread tonight and it was a huge hit in my house! Love it! 🙂

  64. I just wanted to share that my family loves this recipe. We do modify it though. I make it in a 9×13 cake pan and it is awesome. I also have never worried about adding any chips of any kind and we love it just the way it is. Great recipe!

  65. Just found this on Pinterest. Lucky to live in Hershey where I can get cinnamon chips all year! Looking forward to trying this tonight.

  66. Hi! I came across your recipe from Pinterest! I LOVE Snickerdoodle anything and am excited to try some of these delicious recipes! If you are ever looking for cinnamon chips and they are not available; there is a store in Idaho called the Prepared Pantry that sells them in up to a 50 pound bag. I order online from them all the time, the cinnamon chips are a huge hit at our house, we use them in everything. Just thought I would share!

  67. LOVE this recipe so much! Just wanted to put in my 2 cents though and say that I have made this both with the Hershey’s cinnamon chips and the mini cinnamon chips that you can get bagged at specialty type stores like Kitchen Kneads or Allison’s pantry or online and I have to say that the mini cinnamon chips win, hands down. Much as I love Hershey’s – I may just go have myself some special dark in a minute- the mini chips blend into the bread better and don’t have the slightly bitter taste that the hershey’s ones do. I also double the amount of cinnamon for the bread (not the topping).
    Anyway, thanks for the great recipe!

    1. Ooooh, thanks for the tip! I’m so glad you like the recipe. It’s definitely a family favorite too. Thank you for stopping by. 🙂

  68. What size are the mini loaf pans? We went shopping and just picked up the cinnamon chips just because. I will have to use them for this. Thanks

  69. Made these today, really good. Used 4 5″x3″ mini pans and should have known better than to use up all the batter in those pans. I filled it more than 2/3 full and it ran over. Next time when I make the minis I will make 5. Thanks for the great recipe:)

    1. Hi Joy! I’ve had others say they have used butterscotch and white chocolate chips and they worked just as well. Do you have those in the UK? Hope that helps!

  70. This was absolutely delicious! I couldn’t find cinnamon chips so I replaced them with Nestle butterscotch chips and it worked out really well!

    1. SO glad you liked it Katie. I’ve had others say they used the butterscotch chips too, so I’m glad it worked out. In some areas Cinnamon Chips are seasonal so if you see them around the upcoming holidays, be sure to stock up! 😀

  71. For anyone who can’t find cinnamon chips, check Wal-mart. That’s the only grocery store I’ve been able to find them in Northwest Ohio.

  72. Is this recipe still available? It just says ingredients and instructions but doesn’t show them. Am I missing something?

  73. Thanks for posting this recipe! I used it but added white choc chips instead of cinnamon chips. It was amazing! I gave it to my neighbor’s for Christmas. I am posting it on my blog tomorrow {and of course linked back to you!}.

    Merry Christmas!

    Put A Bird On It

    1. The last time I made this I actually got 6 out of it. I think it just depends on which “mini” loaves you use. Either way, the bread is always delicious!

  74. Love snicker doodles so couldn’t wait for this recipe!!! I did 4 mini loaves and they were still raw after 35 min. I ended up coking them an hour. So not sure what happened there. Walmart sells the cinnamon chips year round too.

    1. YES!! But I always stock up just in case. Can’t be without my cinnamon chips in case I’m craving this bread. 😉

    1. To be honest, I’m not sure but it’s worth a try. Let me know if you do try it so I can let others know how it goes. 😉

  75. Is there any way to make just one loaf instead of the 4 mini loaves? I only have one loaf pan…..

  76. I made the bread and it was very good but I felt it was missing something and then it dawned on me there is no cream of tarter in there to give it that “zip” like the cookies. Do you know how I could add it to the recipe?

  77. Can you freeze your lemon glazed zuchinni bread? How about some of your other breads. I bake goodies for many of my committees but many times I need to bake them ahead, so I am always looking for recipes I can freeze for a week.

    1. I think you should be able to freeze all of these breads. I just suggest if they have a glaze to add that right before. 😉

  78. This looks amazing. I am on a weight loss diet and allow myself one super indulgent evening a week. I think this will be on the desert menu of my super indulgent weight loss break 😉

  79. This in one of the best breads ever! I use the big pans and make two loaves and I am happy if have any left the next day. Thanks so much for sharing, my fam thanks you too!

    Hm… that looks yummy! Thank’s for sharing the recipe; gonna try it out soon.
    In the linked article below your see my last cookie experiment… 😉 (sorry for german though)

  81. Do you think this bread could be frozen after being baked? I’m not sure how the crumb topping would turn out. Thoughts? Thanks!

    I’ve made this recipe twice and really like it.. except my cooking times are way off. The first time I made a large loaf and so it took longer but even when I made it with the smaller pans it still took almost twice as long to cook all the way through. Has anyone had problems with this?

  83. I made the bread it fell in center hard to get out pan i sprayed the pans did i need to was flour amounts correct? please let me know

  84. I read through every single comment and I am also having the caved center problem…..anyone figure out why that happens? And if so did you fix it? Lol love the bread though!

  85. Lordy, what did I do wrong? Batter was the consistency of thick mud, didn’t get a clean toothpick test until 48 minutes (and, yes, my oven is dead on for temp). Tops sunk and the whole thing is quite heavy. Looks nothing like you lovely pictures. Help, oh help!

    1. I’m really not sure. I know, the bread is not rounded on top, so it may sink a little or stay flat on top. Were all the ingredients fresh? I’m trying to think what could have caused that. I’m sorry it did, though!

  86. I just put these in the oven and I am VERY EXCITED about them!! I did the 2 large loaf pans because I’m planning on bringing one to the shore with us this weekend. Do you recommend to freeze the one or will it be okay in the fridge for the next few days??

    1. Perfect!! Yes, it should be ok in the fridge or even in a plastic bag on the counter. I hope you liked it!

  87. Always have chips on hand….Make your own cinnamon chips, very easy and only takes a few ingredients . Recipe on pintrest or google it!

  88. I want to make about 4 batches of this for christmas gifts, I was wondering if I made it ahead of time if I could freeze it?

    I just had to add a little cream of Tartar, seemed it WOULDN’T have the same flavor the cookies do without it.

    So I have nothing to say other than you’re a food genius ! This was amazing -tasted like heaven !can’t wait to have it tomorrow morning with my coffee 🙂

    I had one of my senior moments while making this bread and forgot to put the sugar in. Amazingly, btween the cinnamon chips and putting more sugar on top of it, it was really good. I’m not sure it really needs 2 cups of sugar. i’ll definitely make it again

  92. Every time i make this, it does get done and sinkss, if i leave it in longer it gets really hard.

    What can i di? It is so tasty!

    I baked this today and had the following issues. there was way more batter then needed to just fill 4 mini pans; i probably could have used one more pan but i had only bought a 4 pack of throw away aluminum pans so I just put more into each loaf pan. (I bought these exclusively to make this recipe)……of course two of them ran over while baking but I had a larger cookie sheet under them so no problem. It took exactly the full 35 minutes for them to be done. The end results were amazingly good, just not very pretty. I guess I’ll be more prepared next time now that I know I need one more mini pan. So anyone that’s going to use the mini loaf pans that are 5.72 X 3.31 and 1.88 high, needs 5 pans; bought these mini loaf pans at Walmart. Maybe I’ll even try making one large loaf and experiment with the timing.

  94. My snickerdoodle bread fell in the middle and the chips seemed to concentrate at the bottom of the bread. What happened??

  95. 4 stars
    This bread tasted really good but I had trouble with the bake time. After 35 minutes it was still raw inside. 5 more minutes and still not done. I ended up adding 10 more minutesafter that and called it good. The middle was perfect but the outside was tough. Not sure what I did wrong.

    I’ve made this recipe so many times that I lost count! Cinnamon is my favorite, so obviously this bread is for me! One year I won first place in our local fair with this bread. for those of you who had problems with the chips sinking to the bottom, if you put your chips in a small bowl and add 1 to 2 tbsp. of flour and stir together, for some reason the chips stay suspended throughout the bread, they don’t sink. also, i found a place online where you can get these chips year round. Just go to they have so much stuff, not just nuts. you can find all kinds of nuts, baking supplies, dried herbs, spices, etc. their service and shipping is beyond belief! if you haven’t made this bread yet, make it, you won’t be sorry. it freezes like a dream.

  97. I have made this twice and both times it was a fail. I have always said that the third time is a charm. I hope so. One more time and if this doesn’t TURN OUT i WILL FIND A DIFFERENT RECEIPT. vERY DISAPPOINTED.

    1. Same here! Taste was delicious, but just fell apart. No way could it be cut into slices. Second time, made sure pans were well greased, floured, even tried parchment paper in bottom of pans, didn’t help. Have researched different sites for same recipe, thinking something was wrong, but all recipes were the same. Don’t know if I dare try a 3rd time.

    I made this bread for our Neighbors. It’s been a long rough year. One neighbor’s wife and daughter died, another lost her mom and her brother was in a horrific Motorcycle crash that almost took his life. other lost jobs. There were no Neighborhood parties this year. But this bread.. and some other candy packaged and delivered in masks on porches. Filled our hearts with the joy of giving and they all have commented on the bread. The power of a simple loaf of bread made with love and delivered to friends.. what a joy. my husband has already asked when I’m going to make another loaf for us..
    * I def. think the loaves must be cooked in metal or stoneware pans.

    I’ve made this bread more times than I can count because cinnamon is my favorite thing. I think I love it even more than dark chocolate! It always rises nicely and it’s always so moist and so cinnamony! I won 1st place in the quick bread category at our local fair with this recipe!
    Just a note, I buy my cinnamon chips online from They have them year round. You can get them in a 1 lb bag or a 5 lb bag. Sometimes I buy the 5 lb bag. I’m not a spokesperson for them, but is just wonderful. Not just nuts. I buy all my spices and dried herbs from them. Just for example, you can get a 1 lb bag of paprika for 7.99. No more little expensive bottles of spices from the grocery store. And they ship real fast.

    Yummy! This bread was so delicious and such a huge hit here. The family devoured this bread so quick. We love snickerdoodle cookies, so this bread was a win for the family! Can’t wait to make this again soon!

    I did have to bake the loaves longer than suggested and tent tin foil over the tops so they didn’t burn. Also, they were a bit crumbly to cut and had to make sure I cut carefully after they cooled all the way.
    Overall I liked the bread and my kids loved it. I would make them again for sure.

    I have made these in the mini loaves and they were delicious. But my favorite way to make them is cupcakes. Everyone loves them as cupcakes …. they’re easier to give away to people and they are just loved by all!
    My sister-in-law told me about this recipe. Her grandchildren love them so I had to try it.

    1. Oh I’m so glad to hear you love the recipe! They sound so fun in cupcakes and definitely a great/easy way to give to others.

      1. You can keep the same oven temp and I’d bake for about 20 minutes… just keep an eye on them. Every oven cooks differently.

    I make this around the holidays every year and even wrap up loaves to send to friends and family in various states. I leave out the chips but it has been an absolute hit with everyone. Home made is where the heart is 🙂 Thank you for this treasure.

    1. Oh that makes us SO happy to hear! Thank you for sharing. So so glad this recipe has become a tradition for your holidays!

    After recently discovering this bread I made some for a few neighbors. They both sent me pictures of the empty plate within minutes of getting the bread. I know that around me the cinnamon chips can be a little bit difficult to find throughout the year. So I went back last week and bought 30 bags of cinnamon chips. And I am going to be making this bread for all of my neighbor and friends gifts this Christmas. Thank you. I always make it two regular size bread pans. It is a little crumbly but they taste makes up for that.

  106. I would like to point out that there is an error in the recipe cinnamon measurement. Probably doesn’t matter to cinnamon lovers, but in the ingredients the recipe calls for 1/2 tablespoon of cinnamon for the sprinkle on top, but in the instructions, it calls for 3 teaspoons of cinnamon. Since 3 teaspoons is equal to 1 tablespoon, which of these 2 measurements is correct?
    I went ahead and used 3 tsp since that should offset the 3 tbsp of sugar. Am baking it now so we shall see.
    I just wanted to bring this little oops to your attention so you could correct it.

  107. I made the Snickerdoodle bread using the 1 tablespoon of cinnamon called for in the ingredients and it turned out splendidly. Truly a delicious bread. I would suggest correcting the recipe so that it says the same amount of cinnamon in both the ingredients and the instructions. I would say the 1 tablespoon gives it that great cinnamon taste.

    I wanted to love this recipe but I have some issues with it. When you sprinkle the cinnamon and sugar on the top of the bread before baking, it forms a top-crust before the bread is able to rise and there is no way of knowing when the bread is done in the middle. This will result in a sunken middle. The second time I made the bread I skipped the cinnamon and sugar on the top and made it without. When the bread came out of the oven I slathered the top and butter and sprinkled the cinnamon and sugar on top. This is a much better method but because of the density of the bread it is still more of a flat bread-shape on top. And it is hard to tell even then when the middle is done. I make a quick breads all the time and this recipe has been a thorn in my side for the last several times I’ve tried it. Unfortunately I just think there are better options out there. And I don’t know if I will circle back to this recipe. The flavor and texture is great, but with these challenges, it is very discouraging, even to an experienced baker.

    This is delicious. I’ve made it twice. Both times the top collapses into the middle. I added flour to compensate for high altitude & I changed baking powder to 1.5 teaspoon & added baking soda 1/2 teaspoon. It didn’t help much. Any suggestions??

  110. Oh, how I wish I knew how to cook in higher altitude. All is know, is that usually you cook longer or may need to turn the heat up. Have you tried googling what to do? I’m sorry, I wish I knew!
