How to Make Amish Sourdough Bread


  1. 1 cup sugar
    1/2 cup oil
    1 tsp salt
    1 - 1/2 cups warm water
    1 cup Amish friendship batter
    6 cups bread flour or regular flour. (I use regular flour)

    Mix all ingredients thoroughly. Oil bottom & sides of large bowl & put bread dough in. Let stand overnight at room temperature. In morning, punch dough down 4-5 times and divide into 3 equal balls. Kneed each ball 8-10 times and put into 3 greased and floured loaf pans. Brush tops with oil and cover with oiled foil. Let stand 4-5 hours or all day. (If dough has not risen well, put small pan of water on bottom rack in oven, heat to 200 degrees, turn off oven. Put dough on top rack for 1-2 hours.) Bake at 350 degrees for 30-40 minutes. (Cover with foil after lightly browned.)
