Who doesn’t love snickerdoodle cookies?!?
So I’m on light duty this weekend which means I come on at 5:30 today to do dorm clean up, run study hall, and otherwise supervise. Since I had to be back in the dorm by early evening, my husband and I headed out to his mother’s for an early Easter dinner. After a hectic few days on campus, it was so relaxing to sit and catch up with my husbands mom and his grandparents. She made a delicious dinner (I especially enjoyed the spinach and mushroom stuffed shells), and let me bring dessert.
I debated on what to make for a dessert, but settled on a Snickerdoodle Bundt Cake. Of course when I told my husband what I was making he frowned at the lack of chocolate in the recipe, but he ended up being quite pleased. I found the recipe for the cake on http://barbarabakes.com and modified it just a tid bit.
The cake turned out to be a hit! It was moist and delicious! I think this recipe would make for great bread, muffins, or mini-muffins and think I might give those a try next time!
