What's cooking at the Little Pink House?

Cranberry Chutney

Amish Friendship Bread
(Vanilla/Cinnamon, Chocolate, & Pistachio)

Amish Friendship Bread

2 1/2c sugar (divided)
3 1/2c flour (divided)
2c milk (divided) * you can use regular or evaporated milk
3 eggs
1c oil
2 tsp. cinnamon (optional)
1 1/2tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 lrg box Jell-o Pudding (or 2 small ones) *you can use whatever flavor you would like

Pour starter into a non-metal bowl.
Add 1 1/2c. sugar, 1 1/2c. flour, and 1 1/2 c. milk.  Stir with a non-metal spoon.
Preheat oven to 325F.
Measure out 2 cups of starter and add the remaining ingredients to it.
Grease two large loaf pans and pour batter evenly into pans.
Bake 1 hour and serve hot or cold.

What to do you with the rest of the starter?

I realize that it is called Friendship Bread and the idea is that others tend to the starter and then pass it along as well.  I can assure you that my friends would feel a whole lot more loved if I brought them the finished product rather than gave them a gloppy goo and told them it would be growing on their counter top for 10 days. 

I make 6 loaves all in one afternoon.  Then I can make different flavor combinations and I only have to mind the bag of mush for an allotted 10 days.
