Caramel Apple Friendship Bread - Here's something I did different I did to it today. Using this original recipe as the base, I added chopped apples, pecans, apple pie spice to the mix. Baked in 2 8x4 pans for about 60 mins. When cool I poured a Caramel Glaze over the top of it. On the starter recipe link on the recipe and it says at the bottom you can freeze this starter. I always do and it comes out great.

This recipe is great if you use triple berry mix pureed to replace the oil in this recipe and I have also used peaches It is really good with orange dream pudding and pureed mandarin oranges.I was making 12-14 loaves a week of the different flavors I was making use your imagination you'll be really suprized at how it changes the flavor and brings them running. I couldn't make it fast enough!!!!!!!!!

This was my first try at Amish Friendship bread. I used the starter found on this site. Bread came out great. I used a cup of applesauce instead of going half and half with the oil, used Splenda in place of the sugar, and sugar-free vanilla pudding. Even with the lightening up, it came out very delicious.

Taste great. I used 1 cup whole wheat flour, 1 cup flour, add apple and omitted raisin and walnut. It's still soft and moist.

I just love making Amish friendship bread, I have been doing it for years. I was always bothered with the instant pudding mix in the ingredients, so I made a substitution this last time. I replaced it with two mashed, ripe bananas, and threw in a few pinches of extra flour in fear that the batter would be too wet. I also use all organic and natural ingredients as much as possible to make it a little healthier. The bread came out fantastic with the bananas in place of the pudding, very moist and delicious. Everyone I gave some too loved it as well. Next time I will try using apples as I saw some people suggested.
