Welcome to Christmas Sweets Week! 

This is the beginning of a fun and festive week full of amazing Christmas sweets recipes that are sure to have you craving more! 

Today, I’ve made this Easy Snickerdoodle Pancake Cake.

That’s right… pancake cake.

It’s like… a moist, soft, fluffy cinnamon sugar coffee cake.

And it’s SO easy! And so quick! 

We found this recipe in a community cookbook a lot of years ago, and been making it ever since.

We’ve tweaked it a little and made it our own. You will love this!

It pairs great with a great big glass of milk, a steaming hot mug of hot chocolate, coffee or tea.

 Easy Snickerdoodle Pancake Cake is great for dessert, snack or an incredible breakfast treat.

No syrup required. 

The best part of this cake is that it literally starts with pancake mix.

It’s what gives it the fluffy, amazing texture. 

We love making pancake cakes in general, but Easy Snickerdoodle Pancake Cake is a true holiday favorite.

It’s perfect for Christmas Eve, of a Christmas day brunch.

Or a holiday brunch in general.

Don’t be off put by the almost-homemade nature of this Easy Snickerdoodle Pancake Cake.

It’s wonderfully easy, makes a very fluffy crumb and is incredibly delicious.

You really cannot beat it.

And just make sure when you buy your pancake mix, that you use the “complete pancake mix”.

It should say “just add water”. 

Also when making Easy Snickerdoodle Pancake Cake, the dough will be very thick.

It is difficult to mix as it thickens, so I use my mixer.

It IS supposed to be thick, so don’t add any additional water.

  1. I am wanting to try this for a Christmas brunch. Would it be possible to make the batter ahead of time and bake a few hours later or even the next morning? Thanks!

    1. I’m not sure, I haven’t tried that before. I think if you’re going to attempt that, I’d recommend letting it warm up out of the fridge for like 20-30 minutes before baking. Otherwise, I can’t actually see why it wouldn’t work. Might be a little thicker.
