Snickerdoodle Donut Hole

Snickerdoodle Donut Hole

I love saying Snickerdoodle over and over again. It sounds so cute, right? But what actually is Snickerdoodle? I have no idea of what this is until I moved here in Canada and started baking. I have seen quite a lot of posts for Snickerdoodle, most often they are the cookies.

Snickerdoodle Donut Hole

Snickerdoodle, whether cookie or a donut is a simple recipe that uses basic ingredients like flour, butter/oil, egg, sugar and the most important ingredients which makes it Snickerdoodle is the cinnamon. To keep it simple, I’ll just say it is a cinnamon cookie or a cinnamon sugar donut.

Baked Snickerdoodle Donut Holes Recipe

I made this as a donut hole and used my cake pop pans because I like them small and bite size, but this can also be baked using regular donut pan. Being a chocoholic, I had to add melted chocolate in the center. I like it better with chocolate, because it gave a moist center and an additional twist to the regular Snickerdoodle. So, not to keep you waiting any longer, Let’s get started!
