Snickerdoodle Cake

Snickerdoodle Cake, Fall Cake Recipes, Thanksgiving Desserts, Snickerdoodles, Polkadot Cake, White and Gold CakeLast weekend, I made my Snickerdoodle Cake, a recipe I created over five years ago, that became beloved with friends.  It's a cake that deserves to be made over and over, especially in the fall.

This recipe begins with a buttermilk cake that's a little dense like pound cake, but still soft, tender and fluffy.  It's rich and moist from both butter and cream cheese creamed together with white and brown sugars, and flavored with vanilla and a pinch of nutmeg.  The buttermilk cake has a slight tang that tastes just like a snickerdoodle cookie, and it's good enough to eat on its own, but even more spectacular layered with fluffy buttercream.
