Amish Friendship Bread Starter...The End

Well, Today was the last day of my first round of making Friendship Bread Starter. I added all the necessary ingredients and then I divvied it up into freezer bags. I ended up with far more than the recipe said I would. Hmmm. Those baggies have 1 cup of starter in each and I promptly put those into the freezer for future use.

I then used 1 cup to make my first round of Amish Friendship bread. At first I thought I would make this recipe, but decided against it. I wanted to make something Chris would really like too. I've since tasted the bread and it is just 'okay.' I don't know if I did something wrong or I just don't like the recipe.

I've got plenty of starter in the freezer so I'm hoping it was the recipe and not what I did. ;-) But, hey, being willing to try new things is part of what makes life fun isn't it?? I'll keep plugging along in my journey of bread-baking.

Does anyone have a tip or two on Amish Friendship Bread??

Instead of using plain vanilla pudding, try different chocolate pudding, what ever you like. The last batch I made, I used Vanilla Chocolate chip. It was great! My whold family loved it! Good luck!

The recipe on Wikipedia includes combining 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup cinnamon. After greasing the pans, use half of the cinnamon sugar to coat the bottom of two loaf pans before pouring the batter in and the other half to sprinkle on top of the batter in the two loaf pans. Looking at your picture I thought maybe you didn't include this step. This is the way I do mine and if I forget to use the cinnamon sugar my family sure notices a difference.
