    Default Best Recipe Amish Friendship Bread

    Recipe Amish Friendship Bread is a sweet yeast bread that you make from a starter. Either you are given the starter by a friend, or you make your own. Once you have a batch of starter underway, you will want to pass along the goodness by giving your friends a batch of starter for themselves.

    Tip: Do not use metal bowls or metal utensils when working with Amish friendship bread dough. Use ceramic or plastic bowls and wooden or plastic utensils.

    Recipe Amish Friendship Bread Starter

    1 pk yeast
    1/4 cup warm water
    1 cup flour
    1 cup sugar
    1 cup warm milk

    Amish Friendship Bread Starter Food

    This takes ten days before it is ready to use.

    1 cup flour
    1 cup sugar
    1 cup milk

    Day One: In a small bowl, soften yeast in water for 10 minutes. Stir well. In a 2- quart bowl, combine flour and sugar. Mix thoroughly or the flour will lump when the milk is added. Slowly stir in warm milk and softened yeast mixture. Cover loosely and let stand at room temperature until bubbly. Refrigerate.

    Days 2,3, and 4: Stir.

    Day 5: Prepare starter food. Blend flour and sugar in a small bowl; slowly mix in milk. Stir starter food into starter mixture. Refrigerate.

    Day 6, 7, 8, and 9: Stir.

    Day 10: Feed again.

    Now you have four choices:
    You can:
    1. Return the starter to the refrigerator, or
    2. Remove some for baking, and return the rest to the refrigerator. (Continue the ten-day cycle, feeding as above). Or,
    3. Measure out amounts of one cup to give to friends (along with directions for feeding), or
    4. Freeze your starter. Allow three hours to thaw out before using.

    Tip: Do not allow your recipe Amish friendship bread starter to drop below one cup. For more starter, feed it more often. For less starter, cut the food in half for one feeding.

    Recipe Amish Friendship Bread

    1 cup Amish Friendship Bread starter, room temperature and bubbly
    2/3 cup oil
    1 1/2 tsp baking powder
    1/4 tsp baking soda

    1 cup sugar

    1/2 tsp. cinnamon

    Optional: Add raisins, grated carrots, nuts and dried fruit as desired.

    This is a recipe that's always good to have. I received some from a friend last year and it was great.
