"A man who was fond of wine was offered some grapes at dessert after dinner. "Much obliged," said he, pushing the plate aside; "I am not accustomed to take my wine in pills."--Jean Antheleme Brillat-Savarin, The Physiology of Taste

IMPORTANT NOTES:
Following are the recipe and instructions for Amish Friendship Bread as it was given to me. NOTE: Do not refrigerate starter. It is normal for the batter to rise and ferment. If air gets in the bag, let it out.
Day 1: Do nothing.
Day 2: Mash the bag.
Day 3: Mash the bag.
Day 4: Mash the bag.
Day 5: Mash the bag.
Day 6: Add to the bag: 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar, 1 cup milk. Mash the bag.
Day 7: Mash the bag.
Day 8: Mash the bag.
Day 9: Mash the bag.
Day 10: Follow the directions below:
Pour the entire bag into a nonmetal bowl.
Add 1 1/2 cup flour, 1 1/2 cup sugar, 1 1/2 cup milk. Mix well.
Measure out equal portions of 1 cup each into 4 1-gallon Ziploc bags. Someápeople will end up with 4-7 portions depending on how active your starter has been, especially if you made your starter from scratch.
Keep one of the bags for yourself (or leave it in the mixing bowl if you plan to bake right away), and give the other bags to friends along with the recipe.
REMEMBER: If you keep a starter for yourself, you will be baking in 10 days. The bread is very good and makes a great gift.
Should this recipe not be passed onto a friend on the first day, make sure to tell them which day it is when you present it to them.
The Recipe:
1. Preheat oven to 325║. To the remaining batter in a bowl add the following:
a. 3 eggs
b. 1 cup oil
c. 1/2 cup milk
d. 1 cup sugar
e. 1/2 tsp. vanilla
f. 2 tsp. cinnamon
g. 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
h. 1/2 tsp. salt
i. 1/2 tsp. baking soda
j. 2 cups flour
k. 1-2 boxes instant pudding (any flavor)
i. 1 cup nuts and 1 cup raisins (optional)
2. Grease 2 large loaf pans
a. In a bowl mix an additional 1/2 cup sugar and 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon.
b. Dust the greased pans with the cinnamon-sugar mixture.
3. Pour the batter evenly into the pans and sprinkle the remaining cinnamon-sugar mixture on the top.
4. Bake for one hour or until the bread loosens evenly from the sides and a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean. ENJOY!
