Day 10 … Triple batch of starter is complete … ready for dividing and baking!
Follow the directions below for Day 10:
- Pour the entire bag into a nonmetal bowl.
- Add 1 1/2 cup flour, 1 1/2 cup sugar, 1 1/2 cup milk.
- Measure out 4 separate batters of 1 cup each into 4 1-gallon Zip-style bags.
- Keep one of the bags for yourself, and give the other bags to 3 friends along with the recipe.
- Should this recipe not be passed onto a friend on the first day, make sure to tell them which day it is when you present it to them.
- You can freeze in 1 cup portions for future baking – a “win-win” situation!
- Keep in mind – if you make a double or triple batch of starter, as I did, remember to double or triple the amount of flour, sugar and milk.
There are several wonderful variations (biscuits, scones, muffins, pancakes, biscotti etc.) for the Friendship Bread but the classic Amish Friendship Bread recipe is the simplest and yummy!
