I made a few modifications to make it almost fat free and it still turned out awesome! I substituted 1 cup of applesauce for the 1 cup of oil. I also substituted 3/4 cup of egg beaters for the 3 eggs and I also used skim milk and it still turned out very moist and delicious. I used butter flavored Pam on the pan and sprinkled sugar/cinnamon combination in the pan and then on top of the batter before going in the oven. No more starter for me! Thanks!

Good bread! The texture of this bread wasn't the same as real Amish friendship bread, but it also didn't take 10 days to make! Thanks for a yummy recipe!

This bread was really good and supper easy! I halved the recipe and used butterscotch pudding. Thanks for an easy friendship bread.

This is one of my favorite recipes. I love it even more now that I am 35 weeks pregnant. No waiting for friendship bread? What could be better. Thank you for sharing this amazing recipe. And I think that it is better than the original that requires a starter....

I've made this for the 5th time and thought I had reviewed it. It's my son-in-law's most requested dessert. He lives across state and my daughter is paying them a visit this week, so I'm sending him another loaf, which he hoards from visitors and keeps it only for himself and family. I add 1 c. nuts and sprinkle the bundt pan with sugar and cinnimon. Thanks for posting. PS: I was given some original Amish friendship bread made with the starter. IMHO, this one is better, and much easier.

Delicious. Tastes more like a cake. Next time I'll use a bundt pan.

I tasted little difference between this bread and the same bread that took a friend a month. I used chocolate pudding and that gave it even more richness.

As my ID suggests I am a bachelor and I was looking for a recipe for a gift for my new neighbor. What a great semi-easy recipe to impress with. I am not a baker, but it turned out well. I used 3 small loaf pans (didn't have 9x5 loaf pans), so cooking time was hard to judge. Turned out great and made a good impression. Thanks

Great "coffee cake" type treat. So glad I didn't wait a month to grow starter, though. I will make this again - maybe in a jelly roll pan as the crust with the brown sugar cinnamon mixture was crunchy and crispy and wonderful. We all wanted more of that and less of the still very good soft cakey inside.

This is a GREAT recipe! The one I have is a little different and I think it gives it a little kick. For the recipe I have it calls for 8 oz. of sour cream. I have never had it any other way, but this to me is amazing and quite a hit among my friends and family.
