1/3 cup flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup milk

After allowing to sit for 10 days:

1 cup oil
1/2 cup milk
1 cup sugar
2 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
3 eggs
1/2 tsp salt
1 large box vanilla instant pudding
1 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp baking soda
2 cups flour

Mix starter ingredients in a 1-gallon resealable plastic bag;
Do not use any type of metal spoon or bowl for mixing. Do not refrigerate. It is normal for the batter to rise, bubble and ferment. As air develops in the bag it must be released.

Day 1: do nothing
Day 2-Day 5: Knead the bag
Day 6: Add to the batter 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar, and 1 cup milk
Day 7-Day 9: Knead the bag
Day 10: Baking day.

Combine in one large mixing bowl 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar, and 1 cup milk and the batter. Stir thoroughly and pour off four 1 cup starters into large resealable plastic bags. Keep on starter for yourself and give the other three away to your friends with instructions. To the remaining batter in the bowl add the ingredients for bread and mix well.

Pour into two large greased and sugared pans.
Bake at 325 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes and remove from pans.
Options: Add 1 cup chopped pecans and 1/2 cup raisins.

Instead of one large box of vanilla pudding, use one large box of chocolate pudding, or separate mixture and use one small box vanilla and small box chocolate pudding.
