Continuing My 1st Goal

I am so proud that I have continued with my first goal. Today, I'm baking another batch of Amish Friendship Bread. It's cooking in the oven right now and boy does it smell good. I wanted to think of something new to mix into it, and came up with an Applesauce and a Peanut Butter & Chocolate Chip loafs. I've had applesauce before when my mom use to make it and it's yummy. Though I never had peanut butter & chocolate chip, so I'll see what this tastes like.

My 1st Goal - Day 9 & 10


I have to sadly report, I missed day 9. I forgot to stir the mix. But it's ok, I did stir it today and made my first ever Amish Friendship Bread! First I separated it so I can share the starter with my friends. Then I continued with the recipe, which is...

1 c. Amish friendship bread starter
2/3 c. oil
3 eggs
2 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 c. sugar

In mixing bowl, combine all ingredients. Bake in 2 well greased and sugared 9"x5" bread pans. Bake in 350 degree oven for 40 to 45 minutes. Additions (one or more to taste)1/2 cup)- Raisins, apple (chopped), crushed pineapple(drained), candied fruit, coconut, dates(chopped), nuts and/or chocolate chips may be added to batter before baking.

Then I mixed it together

I added mashed banana's and chocolate chips into it

Poured it into my pans

Stirred it.

Put new plastic wrap on to cover.

My 1st Goal - Day 4

I'm doing pretty good so far on staying on top of my stirring. Yeah, I know, not that hard to do. But it's good to start small and not be overwhelmed. So today was just another stir day. Completed!
