Amish Friendship Bread
Has anyone ever had or made this before. I just tried it and was given a "baby" ( a starter for it). This is a 10 day process that begins with the stater.
First 5 days you let it sit in a ziploc bag and squeeze it several times and also burp the bag of air.
Day 6 Add 1 C. each milk, flour and sugar and sqeeze bag several times
Day 7-9 same as 1-5
Day 10 Add 1 C milk, sugar, flour and mix with a wooden spoon.
Make 3 1C individual bags of mix ( new starters) or babies.
With remaining 1 C add: ( The recipe says not to use a metal bowl and to only use a wooden spoon)
1c Veg oil
3 large eggs
1 C sugar
1/2 t baking powder
1/2 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 t vanilla
1/2 cup milk
1 large box instant vanilla pudding
Add nuts, raisins or anything else you would like at this time.
In two well greased bread pans sprinkle with a mix of 1 t cinniamon and 3 T sugar. Pour in batter and bake at 325 for 1 hour or until toothpick comes out clean.
Then give the babies away to your friends with the directions. You could also always keep one for yourself to keep it going.
As for starting it yourself I would assume you would begin with 1/3 C each milk, flour and sugar.
