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!

  1. I personally love Halloween just a good fun holiday if you choose to make it that way. There’s no reason you can’t enjoy Halloween and do the things Becky mentioned as well…..I don’t see it as an either or situation. I personally can’t stand Facebook because of the hoopla Becky described….people get so worked up and irritated with each other ….it’s too stressful for me. Believe it or not I don’t even have a Facebook account and I don’t subscribe to the theory that ‘it’s such a good way to keep up with people’…..maybe, but a lot of what people post is a bunch of phony baloney, look how wonderful my life is….not what is really going on their lives. I find it drains my energy and time when I have peeped into Facebook via my husband’s account. Besides, if someone really wants to contact me they can….*gasp* , actually pick up their fancy smart phone and call or text me. Have a ‘real’ connection like Christy talks about.

    Let the backlash begin 🙂

    1. Although I personally don’t do Halloween anymore, I completely agree with your view as well. 🙂 Thanks for being here and chiming in. Y’all are a nice reminder of the “real” folks in the world who are good hearted, respectful, and kind without prerequisites.

  2. Ha… I got into a ‘facebook’ conversation regarding a posting from HGTV about the “holiday” that is Halloween. I casually mentioned that instead of spending so much time and effort prepping and decorating for this made up holiday – why not do something with long lasting effects – like buy a pair of shoes for a needy child, etc… Talk about backlash. I’m a “Scrooge” for not celebrating this holiday. I was accused of being a kill joy, etc… I casually responded those were all noteworthy responses, but I stood by my expression of beliefs about over-doing ‘holidays’ just like the critics stood by their opinions. Mind-blowing. People: life is too short to ‘doodle’ it away on nothingness.

  3. Christy,
    Your timing is just perfect. We’ve been making a lot of changes in our families activities the past few years. Changing employment situations so that could work the same schedule, be home together. Took a big cut in pay to do it. I work in Tech and I appreciate a good techie tool and phone. I lost some “cred” with a younger coworker earlier this week. “What do you think of the new iphone features? When are you getting yours? ” I then admitted I hadn’t even watched the big announcements this year. I have an iphone. I’m content. It works. It’s paid for. Your insights are a breath of fresh air. Thanks for sharing!

  4. This post really speaks to my heart. You truly have a gift for sorting out many of life’s issues and then sharing your wisdom. Thank you!
