Amish Friendship Bread- No Starter

Tara Grimshaw Recipe

By Tara Grimshaw MommyGrim

I have always loved Amish Friendship Bread, but I just moved to a new town where I don't know many people at all. This was perfect for me so I didn't have to figure out what to do with the other Starters! I also did not like waiting the 10 or 30 days (depending on the recipe) for the other batches I have made. I am very impatient when it comes to my cooking, I suppose you could say.
My 2 year old son is a natural in the kitchen and loves to help mommy add ingredients and mix, so this is how we have our mommy/son bonding time.
We use a bundt pan or muffin pan, as this has been described as more of a "cake", it has been compared to a coffee cake. This recipe yields 2 loaves of bread and is sweet. I hope you enjoy!
