    Arrow Amish Friendship bread Starter

    Here's what I have for the starter. Does anyone have anything different? Also, has anyone made the Amish friendship bread or cake with fruit cocktail?

    Amish Friendship Bread Starter and Bread

    Starter:
    1 tablespoon Active Dry Yeast
    1/2 cup Warm Water -- (110 degrees)
    1 cup Flour
    1 cup Sugar
    1 cup Milk
    Bread:
    1 cup Vegetable Oil
    1 cup Sugar
    2 cups Flour
    3 Eggs
    1 small Vanilla Pudding Mix -- Instant
    1 teaspoon Cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon Salt
    1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
    1/4 teaspoon Baking Powder
    1/2 cup Milk
    Cinnamon Sugar:
    1 cup Sugar
    2 tablespoons Cinnamon

    For Starter:

    Dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup of warm water in a deep glass or plastic
    container. Stir in remaining milk, flour and sugar. Beat until smooth.
    Cover. (A large glass jar or bowl with a tight fitting lid works best for this, but a 1/2 gallon zip baggie can also be used). Because your first batch of starter contains fresh yeast, you can skip the next set of directions and go directly to the instructions for splitting your start.

    Do not refrigerate! Do not stir with a metal spoon! The starter requires 10 days for fermentation.

    Day 1- Begin or receive starter
    Day 2- Stir with wooden spoon (or squish baggie)
    Day 3- Stir with wooden spoon (or squish baggie)
    Day 4- Stir with wooden spoon (or squish baggie)
    Day 5- Add 1 cup sugar, 1 cup flour, 1 cup milk
    Day 6- Stir with wooden spoon (or squish baggie)
    Day 7- Stir with wooden spoon (or squish baggie)
    Day 8- Do Nothing
    Day 9- Do Nothing
    Day 10- Add 1 cup sugar, 1 cup flour, 1 cup milk

    Put 1 cup of starter in each of three containers. Give 2 away to friends and keep one. This will begin their Day 1.

    For Bread:

    You will have about 1 cup of batter left (besides the 1 cup you have saved for yourself). To the remaining batter add vegetable oil, sugar, flour, baking powder, baking soda, eggs, milk, vanilla pudding mix, cinnamon, and salt. Beat until well blended. Add one cup raisins, chocolate chips or nuts, if desired. Grease 2 loaf pans well, and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, coating bottom well. Turn batter into pans, and sprinkle remaining cinnamon sugar onto tops of loaves. Bake at 325 degrees for one hour.

    I made this recipe before, and while I was really impatient to make it, it was well worth the wait when the 10 days was up.

    Here's one with friendship cake. I'll post more as I find them. I know I saw one that was different than this one.

    I made the friendship bread for a long time, until I finally ran out of people to share with. It really is tasty though and I used various puddings to change the taste a bit.

    I've made Friendship Bread in two different versions-- I think one was like the first recipe posted. Thanks for reminding me- maybe I'll start a new batch this weekend!

    No, but I'd like to really get into bread making.

    I haven't made one of these in a looong time!
    One question though, can I use a plastic spoon if I don't have wooden?

    I have made the cake, but it has been years ago. Maybe I should start it and pass it along to my friends.
