My grandmother's recipe for Amish Friendship Bread brings back great memories! Making it is simple and I'll show you how to make the starter.
This bread is softer and doesn't hold well in the toaster, but will toast in a toaster oven.
I've also added raisins and coconut for a delicious twist. You can add oatmeal for a heartier bread, but it will need more moisture, so increase the liquid to include 1/4 cup milk.
I've also seen recipes that call for peaches or plums. This time of the year I'm thinking apples would be perfect! The variations are endless. My grandmother only made the traditional bread, but I can imagine she would have loved any of these additions.
