1 cup starter
2/3 cup vegetable oil
3 eggs
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 to 1 1/2 tsp cinnamon (for sweet bread version)
Optional: dried fruit, raisins, chocolate chips
For savory bread: chopped green chilies, shredded cheddar or Swiss cheese.

Preheat oven to 350. Grease one large or 2 smaller loaf pans. If making the sweet version of the bread, dust the bottom of the pans with granulated sugar; set aside.
In a large bowl, combine 1 cup starter with the oil, eggs, and vanilla. In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients, omitting the cinnamon if making savory bread. Stir until combined, then add optional ingredients. Mix all ingredients together. Pour batter into prepared pans. If making the sweet version, dust the top with extra cinnamon and sugar. Bake loaves for 45 to 60 minutes or until a tester inserted in the middle comes out with only just a few crumbs clinging to it. Cool 10 minutes in pan, then remove from pan and cool completely. Slice and serve or freeze for later use.
