We’ve been baking every ten days, for a while now. Why? Well, I was given a starter bag of Amish Friendship Bread and we are really enjoying it. Have you ever heard of Amish Friendship Bread? Well, it’s basically a few ingredients in a bag (yeast, sugar, milk and flour) that you leave on the counter for a number of days. Most days you just mush the bag… or you get your kids to. However, my advice is that you encourage your kids to do it only while you are watching, otherwise they might throw it down the stairs…. just sayin’… *ahem*
Sometimes you add extra ingredients (flour, sugar and milk), but you spend ten days with the bag and then, at the end of the time you mix other ingredients and make a yummy sweet loaf.
It’s been lots of fun, baking these loaves. They are delicious and sweet and moist and they make a great gift, dessert or tea party snack! There are a number of recipes that you can use to finish off your bread.
Today, I have eight starter bags of Amish Friendship Bread that I would love to share with you! If you are interested in having a loaf to bake with and pass on, just leave me a comment and I will get one to you. Share the love… and friendship.
