Amish Friendship Bread


Has anyone made this? I have and thought I would make it again. I would love to share the starter with you but since I cannot put it through my hard drive -I hear that is not a good idea- I thought I would share the recipe link. This is a great bread and there are so many ways you can bake it up:: poppy seed, chocolate, banana. Plus, -as an added bonus- once the initial ten days are up you will always have it on hand to make a loaf when un-expected guests show up. Then you share it with friends and neighbors. Here is a little more information to help explain the starter for anyone who had never done this. Let me know if anyone wants to join me!

My MIL just gave me a piece of that bread over the weekend. She added bananas to it and it was delicious.

Thank you for the link. I have a Shaker cookery book, but I had forgotten all about it. Perhaps I should have a look again. Your blog has interesting things in it.

Yes, I have made this and loved it! But I didn't bake often enough and it just got to be too much trouble...
Now you've got me going again though.
Craft blogs certainly know how to fill up anyone's list of "to do's".

Thanks for sharing! My mom used to make this when I was little and I loved it. Can't wait to try it again.

I have a few days off coming up and bread baking is definitely on the list. Thanks for the link, and thanks for stopping by again!

My mom used to have sourdough bread starter in the fridge at all times when I was young. I remeber being curious a couple times and opening the container to see what was lurking. The fermenting smell of yeast is one you don't forget! My mom would be so proud if I tried something like this...might have to give it a go! Thanks for the links!!

I haven't made this for years, but you have me thinking about starting again. It does make some great bread.

I made it years ago - in France it's know as "le pain de l'amitiƩ" (friendship bread) -- as one to share. Now I'm just lazy and use my bread machine ! but it brought back nice memories, thanks !

I have tried to make the bread two times. The first time I threw it away when the bag expanded to almost popping. This time I did great until this morning the last day-- it has again expanded to the max. Is this normal or have I done something horribly wrong??
