So in case you missed it, snickerdoodle cookies are my absolute favorite! By now, I’ve made everything from snickerdoodle iced coffee to snickerdoodle mug cakes and they always seem to be a hit! For the first day of #BrunchWeek, I knew I wanted to make pancakes so I set to work brainstorming creative spins on this brunch classic before having an epiphany – Snickerdoodle Pancakes. Right then, I knew that I wanted these to be everything a snickerdoodle cookie was and more. This simple pancake recipe is jam packed with cinnamon and vanilla, rolled in cinnamon sugar just like a snickerdoodle cookie, and topped with an incredible warm vanilla sauce.

I made a batch of hash browns and bacon to go with these pancakes and it was basically the best meal ever! I want to give a big thanks to Dixie Sugar for all the sugar that they sent everyone who participated in #BrunchWeek, I put the sugar I got to good use in this pancake recipe.
Common Questions About Making Snickerdoodle Pancakes
Can you double this pancake recipe?
Yes, I actually tripled the recipe and it turned out great.
Do these pancakes reheat well?
Yes, if you don’t dip them in butter and then put them in the cinnamon sugar. Do that after you reheat them.
Can you freeze these pancakes?
Yes, you can freeze them by putting them right into a ziploc bag and then into the freezer. Again, if you choose to do this, they store significantly better if you do not put them in the butter and cinnamon sugar mixture before freezing. If you freeze them, I suggest heating them up in a toaster oven until warm and then covering them in butter and cinnamon sugar.
Why do my pancakes turn out rubbery?
This can happen if you over mix the batter. To avoid this, mix the batter until it just comes together. If there are some lumps, that is okay.

- 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup buttermilk
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 large egg, beaten
- 3 tablespoons butter, melted
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1 1/4 cups half-and-half
- 1 tablespoon butter, unsalted
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste, optional
- Mix together cinnamon and sugar on a plate large enough to fit a pancake. Set aside.
- In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, buttermilk, brown, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, vanilla, cinnamon, and egg. Mix until well combined but do not over mix!
- Lightly spread butter over either a griddle or a pan over medium heat. Pour 1/4 cup of batter and spread evenly into a circle. Cook until the edge of the pancake starts to brown and bubbles start to form. Flip and cook until the bottom browns. Repeat with remaining batter. To get golden rings on pancakes, put a bit of butter on the griddle before pouring each pancake.
- Once a pancake has cooked, brush melted butter on both sides and place in on the plate with the cinnamon sugar. Flip the pancake around on there until it is coated evenly. Repeat with all of the pancakes right before serving.
- In a small saucepan over medium heat, mix together sugar and cornstarch. Add in half-and-half, butter, vanilla extract, and vanilla bean paste. Bring to a boil and cook for 2 minutes, regularly stirring. Remove from heat and serve with pancakes warm.
