Friendship Bread Starter Recipe

. at . 3 comments


1 package active dry yeast
1 cup milk
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar



Dissolve yeast in small amount of warm water. Mix all ingredients together in ample size bowl or jar – it will grow. (I put mine in a gallon-size ziplock bag).

This is day 1 of the recipe, then the next day go to day 2 and so on.

o DAY 1 Receive fermented starter in ziplock bag. Do nothing! Put bag on counter.
o DAY 2 Squeeze bag several times.
o DAY 3 Squeeze bag several times.
o DAY 4 Squeeze bag several times.
o DAY 5 Squeeze bag several times.
o DAY 6 Add 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar, and 1 cup of milk. Squeeze bag several times.
o DAY 7 Squeeze bag several times.
o DAY 8 Squeeze bag several times.
o DAY 9 Squeeze bag several times.
o DAY 10 In a large non-metallic bowl, combine batter with 1 cup milk, 1 cup flour and 1 cup sugar. Mix with wooden or plastic spoon. Take two one gallon ziplock bags and pour 1 cup of starter in each.

Give these two starters, with a copy of instructions, to CNC women.
Make a loaf of bread (or muffins) with one cup of the starter.
Keep one cup of starter so you can start the cycle over again.

Recipes for the bread will be posted next week.

    Hi Jessica,

    The whole recipe is on the home page, but I am going to answer your questions here in case you come right back to this page.

    “Mix and pour into two well greased and sugared bread pans.
    Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour.”

    I am hoping to make waffles with my starter tomorrow morining.

    I will post that recipe and several others in the cookbook section of this blog.

    LMK how your bread turns out.
