Sharing is Caring

I received a bag of starter of the Amish Friendship Bread and the recipe of how to make the bread last October.  That was my first time of making Amish Friendship Bread and that's the first time I share the starters with others.  This is a very clever idea to encourage your family and friends to bake.  The bread is easy to make, and the ingredients they ask for could also be found easily from your local stores or even your very own kitchen.  In addition, you could put anything inside the batter (nuts, walnuts, cranberries, raisins, etc) to customize your own flavor.

If you want to be the first one to start passing out the bread and recipe, you need to start the starter first.  Click here---> starters and see how you could make the starters to pass them out to your family and friends.

  • Important Note: Don't use metal spoons or equipment.
  • Do not refrigerate.
  • Use only glazed ceramic or plastic bowls or containers.

Required Main Ingredient

1 cup live yeast starter (see starters)

day 1:
Do nothing with the starter.
days 2-5:
Stir with a wooden spoon.
day 6:
Add 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar, and 1 cup milk. Stir with a wooden spoon.
days 7-9:
Stir with a wooden spoon.  
Add 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar and 1 cup milk. Stir. Take out 3 cups and place 1 cup each into three separate plastic containers.

1 cup oil
1/2 cup milk
3 eggs
1 tsp vanilla

In a separate bowl combine the following dry ingredients and mix well:

2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1-1/2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 - (5.1 oz) box instant vanilla pudding
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup nuts

Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Mix and pour into two well greased and sugared bread pans. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour.

 After you are done with your bread, you should have 3 starters left. 
You could pass the one bag of starter and a copy of the recipe to your family and friends
after finished baking.
