Amish Friendship Bread Starter:

I know it has been an obscene amount of time since I haven't posted in such a long time, I'm going to post a great recipe:
This bread is amazing! It takes 10 days to make the starter and from the starter you make the bread! Very, very yummy stuff. The best part is that it makes enough to share 1 cup of starter with 3 friends and enough for you too!!

The Recipe:
3 c. sugar
3 c. flour
3 c. milk

DAY 1: In a GLASS/Plastic bowl, combine 1 c sugar, 1 c flour, and 1 c milk. Stir mixture with wooden or plastic spoon (don't use a metal spoon or electric mixer). Cover bowl loosely with paper towl, cloth, wax paper, or plastic wrap. Keep at room temperature (don't refridgerate.

DAY 2, 3, and 4: Using wooden or plastic spoon, stir mixture once each day.

DAY 5: Add 1 Cup Sugar, 1 c. flou, 1 c. milk; stir.

DAY 6, 7, 8, and 9: Using wooden or plastic spoon, stir mixture once each day.

DAY 10: Add 1 c. sugar, 1 c. flour, and 1 c. milk. Remove 3 cups of mixture and give 1 cup each to 3 friends. Save remaining starter for yourself!!


*This is the recipe I've been using every time I make this bread. I am going to try a new recipe and I'll post that later!*

I have never seen a starter for Amish Friendship Bread that did not contain any yeast!! You may want to check your recipe again. If it doesn't mention yeast, search online and you will see all the other starters have yeast. Just FYI.

I've been searching for one that didn't have yeast. The recipe that I always used, which I lost, didn't have any yeast in it. But it still tastes great. Everybody loves it. Thanks. I'm sooo happy!!
