Snickerdoodle Pancakes

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.  This stack of snickerdoodle pancakes is truly a dream come true for snickerdoodle fans like me.

Whether you make these for breakfast, brunch, or breakfast for dinner, these snickerdoodle pancakes are so delicious and an easy way to feed a crowd.  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.

Since this is my first #BrunchWeek recipe for this year, make sure to follow along and check out the other recipes coming up! I have four more planned and they are all phenomenal! For more information on #BrunchWeek and the giveaway that is happening, click HERE!

Easy Pancake Recipe

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.

Prep Time 10 minutes
Cook Time 20 minutes
Total Time 30 minutes


Snickerdoodle Pancakes

  • 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
  • Butter


  • 3 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon

Vanilla Sauce

  • 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



  1. Mix together cinnamon and sugar on a plate large enough to fit a pancake.  Set aside.
  2. 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!
  3. 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.
  4. 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.

Vanilla Sauce

  1. 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.

    Wow. This looks amazing and scary at the same time. I say scary, as I think i want this for breakfast all the time. This does not help keep the numbers on my scale down. I might, however, have to make that sacrifice to try these little suckers.

    I’m a hosting a brunch this Sunday and I must add this to the menu. Can I make the sauce ahead of time?

      I think that might work, I would just try to make sure you heat it up right before then over medium heat on the stove or worst case microwave it. Let me know if that works for you!
