Day 10 --- The Creation of Quads

Today is October 17th. Day 10 of the Amish Friendship Bread creation. I will admit I entered into this little relationship with some misgivings... but tonight I found myself talking to the bag, patting it's little side before I poured it into the bowl to finish the process.

Tonight I added 1 1/2 cups flour, 1 1/2 cups milk and 1 1/2 cups sugar. Mixed all together in a non-metal bowl... and then very lovingly poured 1 cup each into 4 ziploc bags.

Yes, my little babies have arrived.

With the remaining starter I added 3 eggs, 2 cups flour, 1/2 cup milk, 1 cup oil, 1/2 t. salt, 1/2 t. baking soda, 1 1/2 t. baking powder, 2 t. cinnamon and 1/2 t. vanilla. You also mix 1/2 cup sugar with 1/2 t. cinnamon.. to make cinnamon sugar and you sprinkle half the mixture into the bottom of 2 greased loaf pans.... pour in the batter and then sprinkle the remaining cinnamon sugar on top. Bake for 1 hour at 325 degrees.

Well... I only have one loaf to display. The other loaf disappeared quickly.

This bread almost remains me of a mini cinnamon muffin I make from a Martha Stewart recipe using buttermilk. It's rich and smooth and sweet. It's actually quite good... and my hubby, who actually thought I was wasting my time for the last 10 days stated, "we are keeping 2 starters, right?"

Hmmmmmmmmmmmmm

I can smell that loaf all the way over the ocean! *yummy*
I once participated in such an enterprise. I think it was one of the kids who brought a quad home from preschool. I wonder if they still live on .... goulish thought. *grin*
Do you have that MStuart buttermilk muffin recipe handy? You made it sound so delicious. Pleease?

It sounds good this morning for breakfast! Are you bringing me a starter??

The finished product looks good, but oh my, getting rid of some starters would be the problem.

See you Sat.
Love you,
