The starter recipe for Amish Friendship Bread.
In a small bowl, dissolve yeast in water. Let stand 10 minutes.
In a 2 quart container (Use glass, plastic, or ceramic. No Metal!) combine 1 cup flour and 1 cup sugar. Mix throughly or flour will lump when milk is added. Slowly stir in 1 cup milk and dissolved yeast mixture. Add mixture to a Ziploc bag or air tight container. Let sit at room temperature. This is day 1 of the cycle.

Day 10 – Pour contents into a non -metal bowl (I left mine in the container I was using because I don’t plan to hand any out). Add 1 1/2 Cups flour, 1 1/2 Cups sugar, and 1 1/2 Cups milk and stir.
Measure out 4 separate batters of 1 cup each into 4 Ziploc bags*. Keep 1 bag for yourself, you will be baking again in 10 days. Give the other 3 to friends and/or family.
Use this in your favorite Amish friendship bread recipes. See my TastyKitchen recipe box for a great chocolate recipe.
*Note: If using a Ziploc bag, make sure to let air out periodically.
