This is a wonderful bread recipe. This recipe is from a friend of mine at work who rarely cooks. This recipe is extremely easy to prepare, so ya'll give it a try.
- 2 1⁄4 cups self rising flour
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 1⁄4 cups sugar
- 1 (6 ounce) box instant vanilla pudding
- 1 cup chopped nuts
- 1 cup oil
- 3⁄4 cup milk
- 4 eggs
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- Grease 2 loaf pans.
- Mix one teaspoon cinnamon and two teaspoons of sugar (for each loaf pan).
- Coat bottom of pans.
- Fill each pan about 1/2 full with the mix above.
- Sprinkle top with remaining mix of cinnamon and sugar (split between the two pans).
- Bake at 325 for about 50 minutes or until brown.
As another reviewer mentioned, this is similar to Amish friendship bread. I love that you get that similar taste without dealing with a starter. I did mix up an additional cinnamon sugar mixture to cover the tops sufficiently. I used two small boxes of pudding, which was about 7 ounces, and I omitted the nuts. Great use of my self-rising flour.
It had an okay taste instead of splitting in two loaves, just one loaf would be fine
This bread is very similar to Amish Friendship Bread but you don't have to deal with a starter. I used 1/2C applesauce and 1/2C oil to reduce the fat and the bread was still very moist. This is great with a cup of tea at breakfast or for a snack.
