    JanuaryBride's Note:

    This is a great way to easily make some REAL bread with your Amish Bread starter. So tasty!!! I came up with this recipe through trial and error (lots of error before success). This bread is light and yummy, yet sturdy enough to cut nice slices. It's a tad bit sweet from the starter and is great for a PBJ, chicken salad sandwich, french toast, or simply toast with butter as a snack. Love it. This makes a 2 lb loaf; I tried to make smaller loaves, but never got it right!

      Very tasty bread, gets great loft. I wasn't sure what to expect, because I have regular sourdough starter; when refreshing my starter, I spun off 1 cup and mixed it with 1 cup sugar and 1 cup milk and let it sit 4 hours. I then used 1 cup of that mixture as the Amish starter. I am so used to my 11.25-hour custom sourdough bread setttings that I tried it with this recipe. Because I still used 2 tsp. yeast ('cuz I wasn't sure how my experiment would work out), my loaf rose too much, so I should cut the yeast to 1 tsp. or nothing next time. However, the end result was still a delicious loaf of bread. Made for Name That Ingredient Tag Game.

      Thanks so much for this recipe! You saved our starter from being thrown out. This bread is very good. We have a different brand of machine, but I used the French bread setting and the low crust setting like you said and it worked great. My husband and I had tried 4 different times to use our starter using other recipes and methods, but none of them turned out any good. The crusts were all very hard. This recipe satisfied us both! Thanks again.
