Snickerdoodle Cake with Churro Toffee is the most amazing cake! My husband is having a birthday and my niece told me how wonderful this cake was and so I had to try it.

I had some Disneyland Copycat Churro Toffee left over that I had made and thought that it would go perfect on this cake.

If you have someone that loves Soft Cream Cheese Snickerdoodles, this cake is for you!

It is a good thing birthdays only come once a year because I am sure this cake is loaded with just a few calories. It is moist and so delicious, I wish you could taste how good it is.

There are a few steps, but if you do not want to make the Cinnamon Swirl, my niece suggested that you could swirl some Toffee bits into the batter. I thought that that was a great idea.

How Do I Make Snickerdoodle Cake with Churro Toffee?

Cake:

  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
  • Grease (2 or 3) 9″ baking pans, (depending on whether you want 2 layers or 3 layers).
  • Line the bottom of the pans with parchment paper by cutting a circle the same size as the pan.
  • Place the parchment paper in the bottom of the pan and spray with cooking spray.
  • In one bowl place the cake flour, salt, baking powder, and the baking soda.
  • In a stand mixer or second bowl, mix together the butter and sugar; mix until nice and creamy, about 2 – 3 minutes.
  • Next add the eggs, egg whites and the vanilla extract. Mix again for 2 – 3 minutes.
  • Scrape down the sides of the bowl so that everything is well mixed. Mix again if needed.
  • Slowly add the dry ingredients and the buttermilk, mixing just to combine.
  • Pour the batter into the prepared pans, separating the batter as equal as possible.

Cinnamon Swirl:

  • Before placing the cakes in the oven, make the cinnamon swirl by melting the butter, and adding the brown sugar, flour and cinnamon to it. Mix with a fork.
  • Drop small amount of this mixture on each of the unbaked cakes. Then use a knife to gently swirl the cinnamon mixture into the batter. Some of the pieces will still be chunks, but will bake in nicely.

Tips and Tricks For Snickerdoodle Cake with Churro Toffee:

  • If you don’t want to make the Cinnamon Swirl you could swirl some toffee bits through your batter.
  • Use Churro Toffee or Toffee Bits for decorating.
  • If you want to make cupcakes instead, fill cupcake liners 2/3 full with batter. Drop small spoonfuls of cinnamon swirl onto each, then gently swirl with a knife. Bake at 350° for 19-21 minutes. Yields about 3 dozen.
  • If you don’t have Buttermilk, you can make some by adding 2 teaspoons of white vinegar to enough whole milk to make the 1 1/2 cups buttermilk.
  • Use light brown or dark brown sugar, whichever you prefer.
