Snickerdoodle Pancakes

Snickerdoodle Pancakes

Snickerdoodle Pancakes – with a warm cinnamon vanilla glaze – are going to be your new favorite breakfast, especially if you love Snickerdoodles! These Snickerdoodle Pancakes have the same warm and buttery cinnamon flavor as the traditional cookie, and are sure to be a hit with your family.

I adapted this Snickerdoodle Pancake recipe from my popular recipe for Sour Cream Cinnamon Roll Pancakes. Try both versions and let me know which one is your favorite.

The warm cinnamon vanilla glaze makes them really special. Of course, hot maple syrup would be delicious as well!

  1. These look absolutely incredible!!

  2. These pancakes look amazing, Melissa! I love how easy they are, and any twist on a snickerdoodle is perfect for me – they’re my favorite!

  3. Snickerdoodle pancakes? Yes please! These look awesome!

  4. Girl!! These pancakes are ridiculously delicious. I made a couple of changes due to ingredients I had on hand (subbed in 2% plain Fage Greek yogurt for the sour cream, used unsweetened So Delicious coconut milk beverage for the milk, and I was getting carpal tunnel syndrome from grinding so much cinnamon, so I used 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice in addition to the 1 tsp cinnamon I managed to grind, and a pinch of cardamom because I’m Swedish and love that flavor!) Annnnyway….I made these for my family this afternoon for brunch and we all loved them. Depending in ingredients used, they come out to a very reasonable 75-80 calories each if you make 16, which I did by using an ice cream scoop for even distribution. Thanks so much for awesome recipe! I’ve been making a ton of “internet recipe fails” lately and my family was almost at their wits end, but your recipe redeemed me! =)

  5. Those look and sound so delicious!!! Such a fun twist to snickerdoodles for breakfast!

  6. I don’t think I’ve met a pancake that I don’t like and this sounds delicious!!

    YUM!!! ANd what a pretty picture;)

  9. Oh, man!! These look fantastic, Melissa!!

  10. Super yummy! Thanks for sharing another fabulous recipe!!

  11. My husband would love these pancakes! They look great!

  12. My family did not care for this. The sour cream was very overpowering.

  13. You have me at Snickerdoodle! These pancake look AMAZING. I must try them, like right now. Thanks for sharing:)

  14. Just finished making/eating. Oh so gooood!!! Better then the cookie. Cooked at slightly lower temp then usual (burn issues), used just shy of a 1/2 cup of milk, Odd texture (tartar?), tasted doughy but weren’t, they were Smoooooooooth. My wife fell in love with me all over again.

  15. I was optimistic when making these because my grandmother used to make my brothers and I snickerdoodles every time we came over. Unfortunately, these pancakes did not come out at all. It could be because I live in a very dry location or maybe it was because I ran out of all-purpose flour and substituted half of it with whole wheat flour. It could have also been the fact that I misread the ingredient list and put in two tablespoons of cream of tartar instead of two teaspoons. That being said, the pancakes were burned on the outside, liquid on the inside and were very hard to work with. I ended up throwing the entire batch away and making Krusteaz instead. I’m giving this a two rating though because the glaze turned out well and I ended up using it on my regular pancakes.

  16. I was really excited for these – but they were really not good at all. I didn’t make any substitutions, and they came out really doughy in the middle (I think this was the sour cream) and they tasted a lot like sour cream. It was just overpowering. Also, there wasn’t nearly enough milk in the recipe. I tried a couple just as written, and they didn’t spread at all. I ended up almost doubling the milk (the 1/2 cup to between 3/4 and 1 cup) to get them to spread on the griddle. These were a complete thumbs down.

  17. what is the dietary info?

  18. I have wanted to try this recipe for a while but have kept forgetting to buy sour cream so I just substituted regular vanilla yogurt. They were delicious! They came out very dense but soft and warm inside. I had to cook them on a lower setting than I do with other pancakes. The glaze was the perfect topper and I wish I had some whip cream to put on them. The glaze is also good on bananas and very baby approved. I think there was too much cinnamon though but still good and will do it again!
