I have no Amish friends to give my bread to...

    I was given some Amish Friendship Bread batter/starter 10 days ago, so today I set out to actually bake the bread.

    I got half-way through adding the ingredients and realized I was supposed to separate out 4 cups of batter to give away. Oops. See, I was with a bunch of my friends when I got the batter and I was the only one who took some, so I wasn't even thinking of offering it to any of them since they passed on it.

    So now I've got to figure out what to do with this partially assembled concoction...

    I just guesstimated that it was roughly double the original recipe, so fingers crossed this works.

    Oh, and I'm also hoping my baking powder is still good... And I had to send easy child to the neighbor's to borrow some baking soda. Everything else I had... Guess I wasn't paying very close attention today, was I? :wince:

    Now I have a ginormous bowl of batter! There are four medium loaf pans and a dozen muffins baking... and I think that only used 1/3 to 1/2 the batter.

    I suurrre hope this turns out o.k.! Otherwise the chickens are going to be eating Amish How-to-Ruin-a-Friendship Bread for a looooong time! ;)

    Well, it turned out fine. And now I have EIGHT medium loaves and 24 muffins! I think we'll be delivering some of this to the neighbors tomorrow... :D

    It freezes really well too - toss some in the freezer to pull out at a later date. Enjoy!!

    I was going to say freeze some, as well. I bet the neighbors will be thrilled to get some homemade bread!

    I got sucked into the Amish bread thing for about 3 weeks once. It's worse than a chain letter! ;)

    If only someone would "friendship" me some sour dough!
