I haven't made frienship bread in years and years, then someone gave me a starter a couple of weeks ago. I made this as directed, only I used two small boxes of pudding mix since I didn't have one large one. I baked it 50 minutes and that was probably 5 minutes too long for my oven. The loaves turned out beautifully, and to my surprise were not overly sweet as I had remembered friendship bread being from the last time I made it years ago. Very good with a cup of coffee. This is good as is, though if I make this again I think I may try adding some chocolate chips and maybe a little cinnamon just for variety. Thanks for a great recipe!
Took a bit of time for me to find & make the recipe for the 'amish starter' ~ Found a good one right here on Zaar, thanks to chef #37036 & made these two loaves in no time! Made for very tasty, mildy-chocolate, slightly sweet loaves, one of which my son & his wife very willingly took home with them to enjoy! Thanks for sharing your recipe! [Made & reviewed for one of my adopted orphan chefs at the end of this Spring's Pick-A-Chef]
Very light and moist. The kids loved it for breakfast. I used half oil and half applesauce so I cut back on the sugar (1/2 c.) to keep it from being too sweet. Thanks for sharing this variation of the traditional cinnamon version.
