Amish Friendship Bread

4 Mar

I’ve had a super busy weekend, so this post is going to be very short and sweet. 🙂

Also, I was multi-tasking while I was making this so I only have 2 pictures. I got busy and forgot about taking pictures until the very end. But…I still wanted to show you what I’ve been making. A friend of mine gave me a “starter bag” for some Amish Friendship Bread a couple of weeks ago. I remember my mom making this stuff years ago so I was excited that I could start some again. The batter stays in a ziploc bag on your counter (not the frdige!) for 10 days. Most days all you have to do to it is squish it around with your fingers to mix it well. One day you have to add some flour, sugar, and milk. Then at the 10 day mark when it’s time to bake you need a few other additions: more flour, sugar, milk, eggs, salt, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, oil, vanilla, and pudding mix.

The recipe makes 2 loaves of bread, but I just find it easier to bake it in cupcake liners instead. So I guess these are more like Amish Friendship Muffins. 😀 And because little things are almost always cuter, I want to try making some mini loaves out of this. Sometimes I see miniature loaf pans at Michaels for $1 each, so I’m going to keep my eye out for some next time I’m in there. That would make a cute little gift for someone, and they can keep the little pan for less than what you’d spend buying a gift bag!

Before baking though, you measure out a couple cups of the batter to divide into 2 gallon ziploc bags. So…the entire process starts over again. You can keep one bag to bake the bread again in 10 days, and give one bag away to a friend. 🙂

SO…..if any of my Panama City friends want to start a batch of this please let me know! I have a new bag to share with someone every 10 days. 🙂

Random Thought of the Day: It’s March already! Dairy Queen’s blizzard flavor of the month is mint oreo, because of St. Patrick’s Day. My husband got me one last night. YUM! Reminds me of thin mints. 🙂

Up Next: I think I’ll show you some of the homemade sodas my husband has been making. Not exactly dessert, but very interesting. The kiwi lime soda was my favorite!
