As a kid, one of my favorite treats that my mom made was Amish Friendship Bread. The nurses at the hospital passed it around, and we had some going pretty routinely.

In case you're not familiar, Amish Friendship Bread has it's own wikipedia page. There are tons of (identical) recipes for it online, as well as how to start your own starter, and some variations.

My favorite variation has always been substitution vanilla pudding with chocolate. You can also use pistachio, or really any other pudding flavor. When I got a bag of starter from theboy's dad's girlfriend I was excited. I wanted to start baking as soon as I could, but the recipe takes 10 days, which puts a damper on things.

Of course I used the chocolate variation.

This batch didn't turn out as moist as I would like it to be, but that has not deterred me from eating it!

  1. mmmmm! that does look good.

  2. you should try "Amish lemon cake" if you like lemon...

    bake it in muffin cups/etc, lots of egg and lots of lemon... then you flip them over the top is custard and the bottom is cake..........
