Got some Amish Friendship Bread starter rolling and made a batch of muffins and an small loaf last night. I was pretty impressed with the flavor but I think I want to add cushaw (I have tons) or some other type of mix-ins.
I love kneading the starter in a bag every day. I think I like that better than actually eating the resulting bread/cakes. The gasses it builds up puffs out the bag each day. One day my bag rolled off the counter!
I understand that sourdough bread is made using basically the same process. I love, love, love sourdough so maybe I need to make a starter. It will definitely be worth the wait.
Have you ever made friendship sweet bread or sourdough?
