Ingredients:  
1 c. Amish Starter
2/3 c. vegetable oil
3 eggs
1 c. sugar
2 c. all-purpose flour
1-1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 to 1-1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. vanilla
Optional: Chopped nuts, chocolate chips, coconut, shredded carrots or zucchini, rolled oats, wheat germ, citrus zest or fresh or dried fruit (see note)

Directions:
Directions:
Beat together the starter, oil, eggs and sugar. Stir together the dry ingredients. Stir the dry ingredients into the liquid ingredients just until mixed. Fold in any optional ingredients. Spoon batter into 2 well-greased and floured 9 x 5 loaf pans and bake 45-50 min. at 350 or until bread sounds hollow when tapped. Cool in pans 10 min. before removing. Batter also may be baked in 5 mini-loaf pans; reduce baking time to 30-35 min. For a Bundt or 9 x 13 pan, bake 40-50 min.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
For all optional ingredients, use to taste. Total measurement should not exceed 3 cups, which produces a dense, fruit-cake-like texture. 1/2 - 1 cup makes a cake-like texture and 2 cups produces a coffee-cake density. If there is a lot of sugar in the optional ingredients, you may have to cover pan with foil during the last 10 min. to avoid excessive browning.
