Snickerdoodle Bread

The Snickerdoodle. Who can ignore that name? A type of cookie rolled in cinnamon sugar, which you will come across everywhere in the States. They are characterized by their cracked surface – they are crisp on the outside and soft and gooey on the inside. A yummy treat.

And the coolest fact about these cookies? Some claim that snickerdoodles are German in origin, and that the name is a corruption of the German word Schneckennudeln (lit. ‘snail noodles), cinnamon dusted sweet rolls which are common in Germany.

So why turn Snickerdoodle cookies into Sickerdoodle Bread? Because it tastes amazing! The cinnamon taste and dense, yet moist texture, makes this a lovely treat for breakfast, brunch or any occasion really!
