PIN IT for later

Despite how busy my schedule has been, I took some time off this weekend for some much needed quality time with my main squeeze. Our conflicting schedules (he commutes very far) doesn’t allow us to spend as much time together as we used to. So I try and plan fun stuff for us to do every few weekend and I unplug for a whole weekend. One of the things we did this weekend was watch the entire season of Stranger Things.

I know that vegging out in front of the TV for 8 straight episodes might not sound like a good time to you, but spending a day in my PJs is one of my favorite ways to spend the weekend. I made his favorite meal, this spicy sausage pasta, and we just chilled. I would have definitely made him this Snickerdoodle Cookie Cake but he is trying not to eat sugar right now. Imagine trying to do that in my house! I love to spoil him with his favorite things and I couldn’t even get his favorite Peanut MnMs for our movie marathon. Which also means I didn’t eat any either, haha.

I wish I could take credit for this cake, but our friend Shelby deserves all the credit. Her favorite cupcake is my Coffee Cake Snickerdoodle Cupcakes. Last time she made them, she asked me if I had ever made that recipe into a cake. She’s so smart. Ask and I shall deliver.

When I made this Snickerdoodle Cookie Cake, I couldn’t keep it in my house for the weekend because I know my boyfriend and I would eat the whole thing. So I took it over to a friend’s house and let her and her boys devour it.

One of my boyfriend’s few favorite desserts is a perfect snickerdoodle cookie. So I knew he would love this cake when I was making it. You should have seen his eyes perk up when I was pulling the Snickerdoodles out of the oven.

There are four glorious layers of vanilla cake swirled with a cinnamon sugar streusel. I used a doctored cake mix, but you can use your favorite homemade vanilla cake. In between the layers of cake, there is a brown sugar, cinnamon frosting and crushed snickerdoodle cookies. When you are pouring the cake batter into the pans, sprinkle in the streusel as you layer the batter so that every bite has some streusel in it.

It’s not even fair for me to tease you guys with this cake and not actually share a piece with you. The cake itself is not overly sweet, but the frosting is a bit more on the sweeter side, so it’s nicely balanced.

You don’t have to make homemade cookies for this recipe, you can most certainly use store bought cookies, but personally, I am always looking for an excuse to make these snickerdoodle cookies. You probably need about 5 cookies total for this cake, and they are all crushed up and layered on top of the cake. However, you can get really creative and make miniature cookies to layer around the outside, or over the top as well.

I promise you this is one cake recipe that your friends will be requesting over and over again.

    I just made this cake for my weekly bake. It was delicious. The cake was moist and easy to whip up. I put some crumbled up chewy snickerdoodle cookies (on this site as well) between all of the layers and I liked the extra texture. The only thing I changed for the frosting was I browned the butter the day before, let it get hard before using it the next day to make the frosting. I loved all the brown specks it made. The frosting was too sweet and I would add a bit of salt or vinegar to cut the sweetness a bit next time. I also should have added more cream because the frosting was too stiff to get smooth.

    This cake looks amazing! I just made it a day in advance of a birthday party. Should I refrigerate the cake over night or is it fine sitting out?

      Hi Susan, as long as you are not living in a humid environment, it should be fine overnight in an airtight container! Enjoy!
