Snickerdoodle Bundt Cake- Pin It Or Forget It

I love Pinterest, who doesn't .. right? I have an incredible amount of recipes, home improvements, and other activities that are just waiting for me to try out, but can't find the time or don't have the ingredients or supplies to do them all. After much pinning, I have decided that it is time to try a few out and post my results. Since I have never made a Bundt Cake, I made the decision to find a Bundt Cake recipe on Pinterest, make it and determine if I should 'pin it' or 'forget it'. 

I purchased my first Bundt Cake pan and decided to go to Pinterest and find a recipe that was pretty basic since this was going to be my first time to bake a Bundt Cake. I have to say that it did not take me long to find the perfect recipe; it had me at cinnamon and sugar. 


Snickerdoodle Bundt Cake- found at 'Lick The Bowl Good

I love the combination of sugar and cinnamon so I knew that this recipe was going to be the perfect recipe. I enlisted the help of my girls to help bake. 

This was a very simple recipe with ingredients that I already had in my pantry. The only changes that I made were reducing the sugar, using regular salt and lathering the pan with butter . 

Preheat oven to 325 degrees

Mix 2 tsp cinnamon1 cup sugar in a small bowl. Spray with non stick spray, Crisco or lather your Bundt Cake pan with butter and sprinkle half of the sugar & cinnamon mixture. Set the remaining to the side. 

Sift 2 1/2 cups of flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp baking soda and pinch of kosher salt (or regular salt). Set aside. 

Beat 1 cup of butter. Add 1 cup of white sugar (I reduced to 1/2 a cup) and 1 cup of light brown sugar (I reduced to 1/2 a cup) and 3 eggs. Mix it all together. Stir in 2 tsp of vanilla and then mix in the flour/baking powder, baking soda and salt mix that you set to the side. As you are mixing in the flour mixture, stir in 1 cup of regular sour cream (I promise you can't taste the sour cream). 

Spread 1/2 of the cake mixture into your Bundt Cake pan. Sprinkle 1/2 of the sugar and cinnamon mixture over the mix. Spread the remaining cake mixture over the sugar and cinnamon mix and then sprinkle the remaining cinnamon and sugar mixture over the last amount of cake mix. Now if I was to bake this again I would not have the extra sugar and cinnamon mixture. I would only use the cinnamon and sugar mix for coating the pan. This ends up being a lot of sugar. 

Bake in your preheated over for 55-65 minutes. (I did 60 minutes) Use the toothpick method to make sure it is ready. Allow the cake to cool before you flip it out of the pan. 

For my first ever Bundt Cake I was impressed. It was a quick mix and easy to follow recipe. I love cinnamon and sugar mixes, but I will say that this had a bit too much sugar. My suggestion is to follow the sugar reductions that I made; your thighs and dentist will thank you. 

After my girls and I had a 'few' pieces of this Snickerdoodle Bundt Cake we determined that this Pinterest recipe was definitely a...
