Print this Recipe    Amish Friendship Bread Starter

1 tablespoon
1 tablespoon sugar
2 cups milk
2 cups all-purpose flour
2 pkg yeast
1/3 cup warm water

Sprinkle sugar over warm water. Sprinkle yeast over water, and stir
to dissolve. Let stand in a warm place for 10 minutes to proof the
yeast.

It will foam and double in size. Combine milk and flour with the
yeast mixture in a glass bowl. Use wooden spoon to stir. Place in
gallon size ziplock bag and set aside for feeding schedule.

Day 1- Do nothing. (this is the day you receive the starter)
Days 2- through 5- squeeze the bag to mix and force air out of bag.
Day 6- Add 1 cup plain flour, 1 cup sugar and 1 cup milk. (blending
flour with sugar before adding liquid will keep it from lumping.)
Days 7- through 9 - Same as 2-5
Day 10- Combine in a large bowl the batter, and add 1 cup of plain
flour, 1 cup of sugar, 1 cup of milk.

Mix with wooden spoon. Pour 3, 1 cup starters in baggies and
distribute or freeze.

When freezing, use separate bags for each 1 cup of starter. Squeeze
all air out. When ready to use, thaw bag at room temperature. Begin
the process with the DAY 1 SCHEDULE, or bake bread immediately.

The Tastiest Amish Friendship Bread, August 4, 2004 - 07:46 PM
Reviewer: Carrie B. from Lisbon, Ohio
I have made this bread before but from friend's starters. I have Finally found the starter so that I can make and give away the starter for my friends. This is the best tasting bread my family has ever had. We especially like to make it around the holidays. I usually give it away in handmade baskets to family. They are never disappointed. The starter works well out of the freezer so don't worry about freezing it. Go ahead and try this amazing bread. It is not that time consuming...my 9 year old usually takes care of letting the air out of the bag and adding the milk, flour, and sugar. She has a blast watching it. It's a great project to do with your kids, plus the reward at the end is just the icing on the cake!!

the long lost receipe from my childhood, November 15, 2006 - 12:09 PM
Reviewer: COLLEEN from DENMARK,MAINE
I AM SO GLAD THIS SIGHT HAD THIS RECEIPE. THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE CHILDHOOD MEMORIES, MY MOTHER AND ALL THE LADIES IN HER CHURCH GROUP USED TO DO THIS EVERY YEAR. THEN ONE LADY MOVED AWAY AND THE RECEIPE WAS LOST. DON'T BE AFRAID OF THE STEPS BECAUSE THE TASTE OF THE FINAL PRODUCT IS WELL WORTH IT. ENJOY AND GOD BLESS!!!!
