How To Make Snickerdoodle Swirl Bread

Snickerdoodle Swirl Bread

The recipe card with exact ingredients is at the bottom of this post.

Begin by placing the eggs, sugar, vanilla, and 3/4 c of the butter in a mixing bowl and beat with an electric mixer until well blended and smooth. Add flour and milk and beat again until well incorporated.

Important note: Since these photographs were taken, I’ve started tossing in 1 teaspoon of cinnamon to this batter as well and it takes this Snickerdoodle Swirl Bread recipe over the top!

Take out about 1/2 cup of batter and put it in a small bowl. Stir in some of the cinnamon and allspice (exact measurements in recipe card at bottom of post) and stir until well combined.

Take the other half of the remaining batter and spoon into a well greased loaf pan.

Top with half of the cinnamon batter mixture, dropping in spoonfuls over the top. Use a butter knife to swirl them slightly into the batter.

Repeat with remaining batter, remaining cinnamon batter, and swirling. See how the Swirl is coming together??

Bake this at 350 for 40-45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.

Allow to cool for ten minutes in the loaf pan and then turn out onto a platter, waxed paper, or a handy dandy bit of kraft paper. 

Stir together dry topping ingredients. Liberally brush top of the loaf with the remaining butter (melted) from the topping ingredients, and then generously sprinkle with toppings.

  • 1 stick butter at room temp (salted or unsalted)
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1.5 cups self rising flour
  • ½ cup whole milk with 1 tablespoon vinegar or 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 heaping teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon allspice


  • ¼ cup butter – melted
  • ¼ cup light brown sugar
  • ¼ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon


  • Spray a 9x5 loaf pan liberally with cooking spray or grease and flour it (I use cooking spray).
  • In a mixing bowl, place butter, sugar, eggs, and vanilla (I like to add an extra teaspoon of cinnamon here as well). Beat with an electric mixer until smooth and well combined. Add flour and milk and mix again until blended, about one minute.
  • Remove 1/2 cup of batter to a small bowl. To this, stir in 1 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/2 teaspoon allspice. Set aside.
  • Pour half of remaining batter into loaf pan. Use a spoon to drop 1/2 cinnamon batter randomly over the top. Swirl lightly with a butter knife.
  • Add the remaining batter and dollop the remaining cinnamon batter over, swirling again.
  • Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
  • Allow to cool for ten minutes and then turn out onto platter or towel lined countertop for topping.
  • Melt 1/4 cup butter. In separate small bowl, stir together brown sugar, granulated sugar, and cinnamon from topping ingredients. Brush top of bread generously with all of the butter. Sprinkle generously with brown sugar & cinnamon mixture. Serve warm or allow to cool.


*The last couple of times I've made this I've started adding an additional 1 teaspoon of cinnamon into the batter along with the butter and sugar. It makes it even better!
