Amish Friendship Bread Recipe.



Amish Friendship Bread

Starter is:1/4 C. each:
flour, sugar, milk.

DO NOT use any type of metal spoons or bowl for mixing. DO NOT refrigerate. If air gets into the bag, let it out. It is normal for the batter to rise, bubble, and ferment.



Day 1; Do nothing. This is the date on which you receive the bag.

Day 2: Squish-squish and mush the bag.

Day 3: Squish-squish and mush the bag.

Day 4: Squish-squish and mush the bag.

Day 5: squish-squish and mush the bag.

Day 6: Add to the bag 1C. flour, 1 C. sugar, 1C. milk.
squish-squish, blah, blah, blah.

Day 7: Squish-squish and mush the bag.

Day 8: Squish-squish and mush the bag.

Day 9: Squish-squish and mush the bag.

Day 10: BAKING DAY! ! ! Mix and divide the starter as follows:

Pour entire contents of bag into large non-metal bowl and add: 1 1/2 C. flour, 1 1/2 C. sugar, 1 1/2 C. milk. Measure out 4 separate batches of the starter batter, 1 C. each into 4 separate ziplock bags (one gallon size). Keep one for yourself and give the other 3 to friends along with a copy of this recipe/instructions.

Pre-heat oven to 325. To the remaining batter in the bowl, add:

3 eggs 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 C. canola oil 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 C. milk 1/2 tsp salt
1 C. sugar 2 C. flour
1/2 tsp. vanilla 1 Lg. box of instant vanilla pudding

Grease or butter 2 large loaf pans and mix and additional 1/2 C. sugar and 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon. Dust the greased pans with half the cinnamon/sugar mixture. Pour batter evenly into the pans and sprinkle the top with the remaining sugar mixture.
Bake for 1 hour. Cool until bread loosens from sides of pan (about 10 agonizing long minutes) and turn out to serving dish.

If bag isn't passed on to a friend on the 10 day, be certain to tell recipient which day the bag is at when given to them. If you keep a starter bag for yourself, you will be baking every ten days. If you give your starter all away, you will have to wait until someone gives you back a starter (Google the recipe). This copy can be downloaded at: TheHappyZombie.com/pdf/amish.pdf.
