Or, at least it smells like it.
Today when I got Stephen off of the bus, he couldn't wait to get in the door. The aroma of Amish Friendship Bread was in the cool, crisp air. Mmmm, and it was coming from my kitchen! I only bake this bread for the holidays. It takes 10 days from start to finish. That is one reason why I only do this once a year. The starter keeps well in the freezer, and I accidentally threw mine out this past summer. I was so upset when I realized this. Do you have any idea how many recipes there are for starters? Furthermore, have you any idea how bad some of them are? I've tried many of them, and the only one I truly love is the one my friend, Susy gave me the first year I made it. Thank goodness, she and my cousin Beverly still had copies of the original recipe and 10 days ago, I mixed all the milk, sugar and flour together and then added yeast to it just to see how it would go and, voila! Just like my first starter arrived, 5 years ago!
This is what Stephen's teachers are getting for Christmas, along with some other goodies and candy. I hope he scores some major brownie points! ;P
Uh, oh ...There's only one problem ... I ate half a loaf and I don't feel so good. Did I mention, it's really rich and sweet?
