Friendship Bread Continued....


Well, our experiment with Amish Friendship bread starter is going well. Our starter spells so good and yeasty. We stirred it daily for 10 days, feeding it on Day 5 and feeding then cooking with it on Day 10.

Since I had a hard time finding anyone who wanted to mess with the starter and baking, I used two servings to bake. Haley and I made a cinnamon, walnut variety and a chocolate variety.

Today, our wonderful neighbor behind us took a cup of starter and some recipes. We are still growing the last cup of starter and are looking for a more "bread-like" recipe rather than the sweet bread recipes we have.

Here's the bit I put in my blog post a little over 10 days ago when we started our Friendship Bread....


Haley and I also started some Amish Friendship Bread Starter today. I haven't had much luck making a starter in the past but I am sure it was because I used something metal somewhere...it's been awhile since I tried. So, here it goes....Day #1. Wish us luck!


We may be making a ton of bread when it's ready to go because I don't think I know too many people in real life who would want to take a share. We may be freezing it for later in the year or something. Ha!

We love Amish friendship bread! I have never tried to make our own starter, but we have been the lucky recipients of starter several times. We keep it going for while, but eventually we wind up letting it go until the next time around. Hope yours turns out well!

Too bad you don't live close, I'd be happy to share some starter!

My sister made friendship bread with my girls several years ago. They still remember it! :)
