Amish Friendship Bread

Amish Friendship Bread Starter Recipe
Here's an Amish Friendship Bread Starter (photo source) recipe,
unless you're lucky enough to have been given a bag of yeast that's 
been going around:) ...
I've been making this bread for about a month now thanks to a
starter bag from my buddy next door at school. I literally have 
Amish Friendship Bread coming out my ears, haha! 
So, here's the recipe, but what's even more fun is the endless
amount of variations you can create with the batter after day 10!



Amish Friendship Bread Starter Recipe

Prep Time: 30 Minutes
Ready In: 9 Days 40 Minutes
Servings: 120

"Yeast, sugar, milk and flour ferment to make starter for sweet bread. Because the recipe produces so much starter, give some away to friends."
INGREDIENTS:
1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water (110 degrees F/45
degrees C)
3 cups all-purpose flour, divided
3 cups white sugar, divided
3 cups milk
DIRECTIONS:
1.In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Let stand 10 minutes. In a 2 quart container glass, plastic or ceramic container, combine 1 cup flour and 1 cup sugar. Mix thoroughly or flour will lump when milk is added. Slowly stir in 1 cup milk and dissolved yeast mixture. Cover loosely and let stand until bubbly. Consider this day 1 of the 10 day cycle. Leave loosely covered at room temperature.
2.On days 2 thru 4; stir starter with a spoon. Day 5; stir in 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar and 1 cup milk. Days 6 thru 9; stir only.
3.Day 10; stir in 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar and 1 cup milk. Remove 1 cup to make your first bread, give 2 cups to friends along with this recipe, and your favorite Amish Bread recipe. Store the remaining 1 cup starter in a container in the refrigerator, or begin the 10 day process over again (beginning with step 2).







Recently, we have added cookies and cream pudding, chocolate pudding, cocoa, and chocolate chips
