These Snickerdoodle Pancakes were little bites of breakfast heaven! We all know how much I love Snickerdoodle cookies, I’ll pretty much take one of those over any chocolate chip cookie, any time, any day. I’m not sure what it is about them that I love so much, but I did know that I wanted to recreate them in a pancakes form! If you are looking for simple pancakes,try my homemade, from scratch basic pancakes recipe.

Really, how can anything that’s dipped in butter and then into a sugar/cinnamon mix be bad?

So while these aren’t really a weekday meal, they are so perfect for a lovely Sunday at home with the family.

They are a wee bit fiddly, in order to get a REAL snickerdoodle flavor and feel you have to brush the top of each pancake with butter then turn onto a plate of sugar and cinnamon. Once you get going however, it’s easy as pie and adds mere seconds to the whole process.

You might not even want to eat these withe syrup, perhaps just some whipped cream on top with extra cinnamon might do the trick!

Happy cooking everyone!

Love you more than chocolate,

  • 1 1/4 cups of flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 2 tablespoons white sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1/3 cup of half & half/coffee cream
  • 2/3 cup of water
  • 1/4 cup of Greek yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla

Cinnamon Topping

  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup white sugar


  • Take all of your dry ingredients and sift them together well.In a small cup, combine the cream,water,yogurt, vanilla, cooled melted butter and beaten egg.
  • Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour the liquid ingredients into the well.Mix until almost combined, stir until the dry ingredients are just mixed in.
  • To cook them, spread them out on the oiled griddle with the back of your spoon, the batter is thick and you will need to manually make them into circles rather then just letting a runny batter do its normal thing.
  • Flip the pancakes when you see a few bubbles on the top but more importantly, when you see that the edges are well cooked.
  • This is a thick batter so the bubbles are not the most important sign of flip times.
  • Combine the 1/2 cup sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon on a small plate and set aside.
  • Brush the top of each pancake with melted butter, the turn onto the plate of sugar/cinnamon mixture. Coat the top then serve!

    The Kitchen Magpie , it’s near flawless logic and reasoning. ☺️

    Here’s my best justification: ice creams contain carrageenan, carrageenan is from seaweed, seaweed is a plant, ergo ice cream is actually salad.
