The Bread That Keeps On Giving- Amish Friendship Bread
0

6 posts in this topic

So several friends I know are doing the amish friendship bread but there was no way of knowing if it was gluten/dairy free so I searched the web and started my own. Now everyone I have shared it with just loves it (whether they keep it Gluten-free Casein-free or not it turns out great). I've tested several variations too with different flours and not using pudding mix or using apple-sauce instead of all oil and it is awesome. The wait for the starter to ferment is the hardest part but the pay off is worth it.

I also found a recipe to make your own pudding mix out of Dari-free powder which works well....I'll start a new thread for that.

We like it best with the Enjoy Life chocolate chips!

Ingredients:

***Starter***

1 tablespoon Active Dry Yeast

2 cups Warm Water -- (110 degrees)

1 cup Flour (gluten-free flour)

1 cup Sugar

1 cup Milk (or milk sub)

***To Make Bread***

1 cup Vegetable Oil or 1/2 c oil + 1/2 c applesauce

1 cup Sugar

2 cups Flour(gluten-free flour)

3 Eggs

1 small Vanilla Pudding Mix -- Instant (use as much or little as you want or none at all)

1 teaspoon Cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon Salt

1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda

1/4 teaspoon Baking Powder

1/2 cup Milk (or milk sub)

***Cinnamon Sugar***

1 cup Sugar

2 tablespoons Cinnamon

Directions:

For Starter: Dissolve yeast in 1/2 cup of the warm water in a deep glass or plastic container. Stir in remaining warm water, flour and sugar.

Beat until smooth. Cover. (A large glass jar or bowl with a tight fitting lid works best for this, but a 1/2 gallon zip baggie can also be used).

Because your first batch of starter contains fresh yeast, you can skip the next set of directions and go directly to the instructions for splitting your start.

Do not refrigerate! Do not stir with a metal spoon! The starter requires 10 days for fermentation.

Day 1- Begin or receive starter Day 2- Stir with wooden spoon (or squish baggie) Day 3- Stir with wooden spoon (or squish baggie) Day 4- Stir with wooden spoon (or squish baggie) Day 5- Add 1 cup sugar, 1 cup flour, 1 cup milk Day 6- Stir with wooden spoon (or squish baggie) Day 7- Stir with wooden spoon (or squish baggie) Day 8- Do Nothing Day 9- Do Nothing Day 10- Add 1 cup sugar, 1 cup flour, 1 cup milk

Put 1 cup of starter in each of three containers. Give 2 away to friends and keep one. This will begin their Day 1.

For Bread: You will have about 1 cup of batter left (besides the 1 cup you have saved for yourself). To the remaining batter add vegetable oil, sugar, flour, baking powder, baking soda, eggs, milk, vanilla pudding mix, cinnamon, and salt. Beat until well blended. Add one cup raisins, chocolate chips or nuts, if desired.

Grease 2 loaf pans well, and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar, coating bottom well. Turn batter into pans, and sprinkle remaining cinnamon sugar onto tops of loaves. Bake at 325F degrees for one hour.

This recipe for Amish Friendship Bread Starter and Bread serves/makes 5 cups

That's neat, one of my coworkers just made the real version (non gluten free) just a few months ago, the bag was laid out on a filing cabinet here.

    • The sluggishness, hair loss, and weight gain made me think of hypothyroidism, but then the diarrhea throws me  - unless the two things are unrelated. Coincidental but unrelated. I looked up positive lactoferrin test on labsonline:
      Lactoferrin is a stool (fecal) test that is used to detect inflammation in the intestines. Intestinal inflammation is associated with, for example, some bacterial infections and, in people with inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), it is associated with disease activity and severity. The test may be ordered to distinguish between IBD and non-inflammatory disorders and to monitor IBD disease activity. Also the bands refers, if I'm not mistaken, to neutrofils and as others have said, usually this means that there is an infection or inflammation present and the bone marrow is producing more WBCs and releasing them into the blood before they are fully mature. I'm sure you would have mentioned medications you were taking if you or a medical provider thought they may be affecting you negatively. Let us know if there is anything else we can do. You have a lot of people here ready to help. Plumbago   ETA: I see the doctor chalked something up to your occasional use of ibuprofen. Sorry, I could not figure that one out, and how it had much to do with your symptoms.    
    • http://hypothyroidmom.com/10-nutrient-deficiencies-every-thyroid-patient-should-have-checked/ Maybe this article can help.   Malabsorption of nutrients can make the body do weird things.  
    • Thank you!  I'll check it out.
    • They are N/A because they were not tested for on those dates. Also, I have never been on thyroid medication so I can rule that possibility out. Is it possible that TSH fluctuates before hypo presents itself? It has been 4 months since my last test and a few symptoms that I thought would resolve themselves by now on my gluten-free diet have persisted which is making me question these thyroid numbers further. 
    • A great celiac research group is located at UC San Diego.  Worth a drive.   https://health.ucsd.edu/specialties/gastro/areas-expertise/pages/celiac-disease-clinic.aspx Consider calling the Ped GI daily to see if there are any cancellations.   Or check this directory from the Celiac Foundation: https://celiac.org/celiac-disease/resources/provider-directory/
