Friendship Bread Shared among Friends

With going back to school and all I have started to enjoy my life as a grand-parent. The reason is that while princess sees her friends at school because she is in early elementary school I go pick her up and see her friends parents and grandparents. What a treat for me to sit and chat for a moment. Here is a great recipe that we are sharing right now. I must say not the first time

    A delicious sweet bread that bonds friends by sharing countless loaves of bread that all began from the same bowl of simple ingredients. Choose a few friends to start this wonderful tradition, they'll thank you for it!
    • 1 (1/4 oz.) pkg. active dry yeast
    • 1/4 c. warm water (110° degrees.)
    • 1 c. sugar
    • 1 c. flour
    • 1 c. warm milk (110° degrees.)
    This is the Amish Friendship Bread Starter recipe that you will need to make Amish Friendship Bread. Do NOT use any type of metal utensils or bowls for mixing, it will interfere with the fermentation process.
    In a glass or plastic measuring cup, dissolve yeast in warm water for about 10 minutes. Pour yeast mixture, 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar and 1 cup milk into a 1 gallon re-seal-able plastic bag. Seal and knead mixture until well combined. This is Day 1 of the Amish Friendship Bread instructions.

    day 1:
    Do nothing with the starter.
    days 2-5:
    Stir with a wooden spoon.
    day 6:
    Add 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar, and 1 cup milk. Stir with a wooden spoon.
    days 7-9:
    Stir with a wooden spoon.
    Day 10:
    Add 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar and 1 cup milk. Stir. Take out 3 cups and place 1 cup each into three separate plastic containers. Give one cup and a copy of this recipe to three friends. To the balance (a little over one cup) of the batter, add the following ingredients and mix well.
    1 cup oil
    1/2 cup milk
    3 eggs
    1 tsp vanilla

    In a separate bowl combine the following dry ingredients and mix well:

    2 cups flour
    1 cup sugar
    1-1/2 tsp baking powder
    2 tsp cinnamon
    1/2 tsp baking soda
    1 - (5.1 oz) box instant vanilla pudding
    1/2 tsp salt
    1 cup nuts

    Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Mix and pour into two well greased and sugared bread pans. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour
