1 1/2 teaspoons
1 cup Amish Friendship Bread Starter
apples - peeled, cored and finely chopped
This is the recipe we love. It's much better than the ones out there that include pudding mixes! We think this is much healthier and rises better!
wierd. i guess i'm the only one who thought that this bread was dry and...eh.
i made the other amish bread (w/vanilla pudding) last night and that one came out so much moister than this one. also, by 50 minutes this one was burnt.
I made several versions of amish friendship bread and this was the one that everyone loved. It's hard to please everytone - which consists of 6 kids and a husband. Thanks for the wonderful recipe
This recipe is far better and healthier than the original friendship bread. I substituted some of the white flour for whole wheat and grated the apples and nuts to make them more acceptable to my children. It makes a very moist and delicious breakfast or snack.
I enjoyed this recipe. I made two changes; I omitted the nuts as my boyfriend is allergic. I also substituted pumpkin puree for the oil. The bread did get brown long before the inside was done; 40 minutes in I turned the temp down to 325 and gave it another 15 minutes to cook it all the way through. The taste is great though, just the right amount of cinnamon and apples. UPDATE: Made this again, using the exact ingredients as the recipe states. I put some in muffin tins and they took about 15 minutes to bake.
This was my first attempt with making friendship bread and I decided to use this recipe with my starter that was given by a neighbor. What a wonderfully, delicious cake like bread. I chose to make this in 1 Bundt pan rather than making two loaves. I added just a sprinkling of nutmeg to the batter. Then I sprinkled with confectionary sugar after baking. Baking time in the Bundt pan took 45-50 minutes at the 350 degrees. I set my timer to check with a cake tester 5 minutes earlier to help prevent drying out and over baking. My first slice I tried plain, loved it. The second slice I tried with peanut butter. YUMMY! This bread went perfectly with a cup of coffee. I decided to send a sample slice of this bread and recipe to the people I pass the starter onto. After trying this recipe, I decided to keep a starter for myself and start over, so I can make this bread again and also freezing a starter to use at a later time. For those that don’t have the starter, you can find the recipe for “Amish Friendship Bread Starter” here at All Recipes.
Great Great Bread, except I had to use 3/4 of my batter just to get the bread tall enough. This recipes needs to be adjusted for that fact. It's never tall enough, unless you use most of your batter on one loaf instead of two.
I used applesauce also and threw some mashed bananas in. Very Moist and Yummy!! I reduced temp to 325, to risk browning prematurely, Looks perfect!
Perhaps your oven is hotter than normal, I used to get "burned" Amish friendship bread and breads in general because my ovens thermostat was going bad and couldn't regulate my oven properly. I replaced it and used this recipe again for the full 50 minutes, it turned out perfect!
