Snickerdoodle Cake

My family absolutely loves snickerdoodle cookies so when I saw this recipe from kaboose I knew we had to try it! It had a yummy cinnamon sugar crunch on top which we then topped with a dollop of whipped cream. It was a nice change from my usual chocolate cravings!


* 2-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
* 2 teaspoons baking powder
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 2 cups sugar
* 1/2 cup shortening
* 2 eggs
* 1 cup milk
* 3 tablespoons sugar
* 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

Cooking Instructions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9x13-inch pan.
2. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
3. In a large bowl, cream 2 cups sugar and shortening until fluffy. Add eggs one at a time, mixing well with each addition. Alternately add milk and flour mixture in three stages, mixing well with each addition.
4. In a small bowl, mix 3 tablespoons sugar with cinnamon. Sprinkle this mixture evenly over cake.
5. Pour into prepared pan and bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes or until done.
