Amish Friendship Bread Day!

Today was the official baking day for the friendship bread that I started 10 days ago (the starter miscalculation that left me with 10 starters to give away!). All in all, I think the journey from Oklahoma to Danville, VA was successful:
We baked 2 starter's worth and saved 2 more to freeze/give away. I'm fairly sure the reason you can make 2 loaves from one starter is because it is ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY to eat nearly an entire loaf the second it comes out of the oven.

It's fun baking in my mother-in-law's kitchen at Thanksgiving because we always blast the Christmas tunes. It's NEVER to early for Christmas tunes, I think (much to the annoyance of my poor college roommates). This year I danced around with Joe to "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree" while we waited for the bread to cool off.

I don't know which was better; the bread or the dancing. I think he liked it too.

I hope everyone else's bread turned out well! Please let me know if you were baking today! (Link for recipe is here, in case you need it.)


  1. I'm baking mine as soon as I get home tonight!

  2. I took a loaf to Matt's family for Thanksgiving and it was devoured. I'm making more for my family get together this weekend. Thanks so much for the starter!!

  3. I'm glad it turned out for you guys!
