The wild winters of Minnesota have toughened me up like no other place I’ve ever lived.
Then again, I’ve only lived in Southern California all my life prior to this, so I guess I had it coming.
I would never have imagined being elated at the anticipation of the great outdoors climbing above zero degrees. I feel quite hardy after making it through several winters (around here, it’s normal to count how many winters one has survived.)
Despite my aversion to cold weather, I do love the opportunities it affords me to stay in and bake to my heart’s content.
When the boys and Hubby come home to the smell of cinnamon, spices, and sweetness… they know it’s gotta be something really good.
It’s gotta be something really worth throwing off their coats and boots (where I’ll later find strewn all over floor) and running into the kitchen, begging for a taste of what’s not even finished baking yet.
Snickerdoodle bread. A quick bread that is cinnamon-loaded, perfectly spiced, and dense yet moist.
This is not a light, cakey deal. No, this is a satisfying, rich, moist bread that is perfect for breakfast and a cup of coffee. This snickerdoodle bread is something worth waking up for.
Or, you know, one could also plop a big scoop of vanilla bean ice cream on top of a slice of this…
A slice of this cinnamony snickerdoodle bread in the afternoon is the best way to pick up one’s mood if one is needing a pick-me-up. I am a one 🙂
Made with wholesome yogurt, this snickerdoodle bread has a perfect balance of sweetness and slight tang, with a crispy, crackly cinnamon-sugar top.
This recipe makes a bit of leftover batter after filling up a loaf pan, so I like making a few extra mini-loaves or muffins to enjoy on the side. (Nobody else needs to know about those.)
Happy baking. Enjoy!Print
