Here it is, the post I know ya’ll have been waiting for, the bread post. As I said before, I have been having so much fun experimenting with this bread. The first two loaves I made without pudding and was happy with it. I used half whole wheat flour and half white flour. I also added ground flax seed. That’s why it looks a little weird. I realized just before I put the loaves in the oven, that I had forgotten to take any pictures of making the bread. I haven’t done so since either. Oops!

Since then I put pudding in it. Wow! What a difference. Our favorite is the seasonal pumpkin spice pudding. I tried a pumpkin spice version using pumpkin but it didn’t have the flavor I was looking for. We have also tried vanilla pudding (good) and banana cream pudding (not so good).

I have put chocolate chips in a few batches as well. So gooooooood. I tend to forget to put the sugar on top but you can put it on after baking, if still hot, and it will stick. I make lots of mistakes in the kitchen, that’s how you learn.

I’ve also made muffins with it. Works pretty good. I found the best way was in silicon cups since they are easy to butter and sugar. I did mini muffins with baking cups, it worked okay but they taste different without the butter and sugar. Not bad, just different.

And now, I will give you the recipe.

Amish Friendship Bread

  • 2/3 cup oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 to 1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 1/4 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp. baking soda

Optional :

  • ½ cup milk and small box pudding
  • nuts

Add all ingredients to the remaining starter and mix well. Grease two loaf pans with butter, sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 325 degrees F for 45 minutes to 1 hour (individual oven temperatures vary). Cool 10 minutes, remove from pans. Makes two loaves of Amish Friendship Bread. Enjoy!
