DIRECTIONS

  • On day 1: combine 1 cup milk, 1 cup sugar, and 1 cup flour in a large ziplock bag and mush to mix ingredients.
  • On days 2-5: mush the bag twice daily (remove air first).
  • On day 6: add 1 cup milk, 1 cup sugar, and 1 cup flour to the bag and mush to mix.
  • On days 7-9: mush the bag twice daily (remove air first).
  • On day 10: squeeze contents of bag into large mixing bowl.
  • Add 1 cup milk, 1 cup sugar, and 1 cup flour and mix well.
  • Measure out 4 (1 cup each) "starters" (these will be used for other batches rather than starting with fresh milk, flour, and sugar on day 1; or you may give them to a friend with a copy of the recipe, but note this takes the place of the day 1 ingredients.) You may freeze the starters for future use if desired (the second day out of the freezer is day 1).
  • To the small amount in the bowl add oil, milk, eggs, vanilla; mix well.
  • Next add remaining ingredients (except nuts and raisins); mix well.
  • Then (if using) fold in nuts and raisins.
  • Spray 2 loaf pans with cooking spray.
  • Sprinkle generously with cinnamon and sugar.
  • Pour batter into pans and sprinkle tops with cinnamon and sugar.
  • Bake at 325 for 1 hour or until done. (25 minutes for muffins).
