Friendship Bread

Do NOT use metal spoons or bowl!

1 package yeast
1/4 c warm water
3 c flour, divided
3 c sugar, divided
3 c milk, divided

In a small bowl, dissove yeast with warm water. Combine 1 c flour and 1 c sugar, mix thoroughly or it will lump when milk is added. Stir in 1 c milk slowly. Add to yeast mixture. Cover loosely and let stand on counter. Consider this day 1 of the 10 day cycle.

Days 2-4 stir starter
Day 5-stir in 1 c flour, 1 c sugar and 1 c milk.
Days 6-9 stir starter
Day 10-stir in 1 c flour, 1 c sugar and 1 c milk. Remove 1 cup to make your first bread, give 2 c to friends. Store the remaining 1 cup in the fridge or start the 10 day process over again (starting with day 2).

1 c oil
1/2 c milk
3 eggs
1 t vanilla

In another bowl combine dry ingredients-

2 c flour
1 c sugar
1 1/2 t baking powder
2 t cinnamon
1/2 t baking soda
1 5.1 oz box instant vanilla pudding
1/2 t salt
1 c nuts (optional)

Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients. Pour into 2 greased bread pans. Bake 325 degrees for one hour.

You can be creative with this recipe, changing the type pudding, adding fruit, chips, etc. Starter can be frozen-but let it unthaw in the refrigerator before beginning the 10 day process!
