After the success of the Snickerdoodle Cookie Bars, I figured I should explore another variety of Snickerdoodle with this Snickerdoodle Bundt Cake recipe. If you are a fan of cinnamon and sugar, then you have got to keep reading about this one.
While it is completely different from the traditional Snickerdoodle Cookie recipe or bar, it holds its own as something memorable, tasty, and pleasantly old-fashioned. Yes, I did say old-fashioned. Snickerdoodles are not a new combination. In fact, Snickerdoodles can be traced back to the New England states.
Brief History of the Snickerdoodle Cookie
But where did Snickerdoodle cookies (and all the fun flavors we’ve riffed off of them in the hundreds of years since) come from? They could be of German or Dutch origin. You see, (affiliate link) Joy of Cooking believes that snickerdoodles came from the German word “Schneckennudeln” also known as snail dumplings or cinnamon-dusted sweet rolls. I can kind of see where that would be twisted into snickerdoodles, can you?
Barry Popin shares that “”Snickerdoodles” have gone by many other colorful names, such as “snip doodles,” “kinkawoodles,” and “tangle breeches.”” Somehow, kinkawoodles bundt cake just doesn’t have the same ring to it. Just imagine hearing a three-year-old asking for that.
Really, it’s no surprise. After all, that period in food history was filled with funny names. You’ve heard of grumps, slumps, and pandowdy, right? If you are lucky, you may have even tasted some of those delicious desserts, too. Consider it one more comical food name from the time period. I guess it goes to show they occasionally had a sense of humor, at least when it came to food.
Snickerdoodle Bundt Cake
Bundt cakes are a wonderful thing. They make a lot, so it is easy to keep a significant chunk for you and yours, while also sharing with those around you. Since this is a bundt cake recipe and a darn good one, I shared a bit of the snickerdoodle bundt cake with the neighbors. The cinnamon swirl on the inside looked too pretty to keep to ourselves. Yes, it is irresistible.
I think that baked goods make great icebreakers. If you’ve ever waited too long to greet the new neighbors or never did meet some of them when you moved in, it’s a nice move. I always like to say something about how I made to much and hope they can use a nice dessert. No one ever turns it down.
