This is the recipe that I’ve come up with for the famous Amish Friendship Bread. Now you can make Amish Friendship Bread anytime you want without having that “secret” starter passed to you. I have no way of knowing for sure if this is exactly what the starter is that is supposed to be a “secret” but I do know that I get the same results….DELICIOUS BREAD!
Servings: 1 starterPrep Time: 15 min
1 package of active dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water (110 degrees)
1 cup sugar
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup milk
Dissolve yeast in water, let stand 10 minutes.
Combine sifted flour and sugar together. Mix well so flour will not be lumpy.
Slowly stir in milk and yeast mixture. Mix well.
Put starter in a gallon Ziploc bag. (Do not refrigerate.) Watch the starter very closely at first and let the air out of the bag as needed. It will bubble and ferment a lot the first day. This is Day 1. Mark the date on your Ziploc bag and now you just follow the directions as you would if you received the starter from a friend.
See Amish Friendship Bread Recipe for directions to continue through Day 10 and baking.
