    AlaskaStephanie's Note:

    A little less sweet--a little more spicy! My Christmas use for Amish Friendship Bread starter! You can add a quarter to half cup of sugar with the dry ingredients if you have a sweet tooth, but I really prefer it with just the molasses.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 6-8



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
    2. 2
      Combine wet ingredients: starter, egg, oil, applesauce, milk or cream, vanilla, and molasses. Stir well.
    3. 3
      Combine dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, spices, and pudding mix in a separate bowl. Whisk until well-combined.
    4. 4
      Add dry mix gradually to wet mix, and stir until barely combined. Stir in candied peel if using.
    5. 5
      Spread in greased loaf pan.
    6. 6
      Bake (at 325 degrees) approximately one hour. Check it at fifty minutes to determine baking time for your oven!
    7. 7
      Remove from oven and cool on a rack. When BARELY warm to the touch, spread cream cheese frosting over top of loaf. I like runny, glazey, drippy frosting--if you like it thicker, you'll need more frosting and a light hand to keep from tearing pieces off the top of this tender loaf!
