It’s been quite some time since I posted any thoughts here at Fishes and Loaves so I figured I needed to poke my head up and let you know I was still around.
Actually, I’ve got some Amish Friendship Bread in the oven as I type this. Amish Friendship Bread is great in a pinch when you need to throw something together that’s sweet and goes well with coffee or a cold glass of milk. You can smother it with ice cream or a fancy vanilla sauce or you can dunk it. Any way you choose it’s delicious.
The thing about this sweet bread is that it starts with a yeast starter and needs to be fed on a regular basis just like sour dough starter so if you arent up to the maintenance you might not like this style of bread.
On the other hand if you like to share your recipes this is a wonderful way to do that since you “grow” your starter and then split and share it with your friends, hence the name Friendship Bread.
Here’s the same recipe I’ve been using but there are other similar recipes all over the internet. This site suggests giving your friendship bread away to the needy. A nice opportunity to share the love of Christ.Acts 2:46-47 So continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, they ate their food with gladness and simplicity of heart, 47 praising God and having favor with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily those who were being saved.
