Amish Friendship Bread
Ever had Amish Friendship bread? I was given a starter awhile back. How it works is that you are given a bag full of bread mix and you have to mush it everyday. then, on the 6th day, you have to add sugar, flour, and milk. then you mush the bag again for a few days. on the 10th day, you add a bunch of ingredients, mix it well, dish out four one cup starters, and bake the rest. the you give out the four starters to your friends...hence...Amish Friendship Bread.
The bread is SO good. this is what the finished products looks like...it tastes even better. apparently only the Amish know how to make the starter, so you have to wait for someone to give you a starter back if you want to make more(or you can keep a starter for yourself. after all you are your own friend, right?) Here is it in all it's cinnamonny goodness.the funny thing is...i've lived in the middle of Amish country for almost 10 years now and never heard of Amish friendship bread. I had to come all the way to alaska to find out about it. funny how those things work. Thanks, Angie, for my first starter.
