Ingredients:  
This uses a starter.
1 cup milk
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
Put into a gallon size baggie and squeeze everything together. Seal and leave along until the next day. This is day 1.
Day 2,3,4,5 all you do is mush the bag. Let air out if needed.
Day 6, add 1 cup of each milk, sugar and flour and mush that bag again.
Day 7, 8 and 9 just mush that bag!
On day 10, you get to make the bread.
Add 1 1/2 cup of each milk, sugar and flour. Mush it good! Mush it real good!
Now take 1 cup into 4 different bags, save 1 cup for you. Now you can share the bags with your friends. HA - Friendship Bread!
To the 1 cup of batter add:
1 cup oil
1 cup Milk
1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. vanilla
2 tsp. cinnamon
2 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder

Directions:
Directions:
Grease 2 bread pans. (You can mix 1 tsp. Cinnamon and 1/2 cup sugar and sprinkle into the bottom of the pans, I don't always do this, but it is very good). Mix all ingredients thoroughly and divide batter into bread pans.
Bake 325 for 1 hour. The bread will loosen around the sides. Run a knife around the edges and turn bread onto a cooling rack. Enjoy the smell and dig in!

Personal Notes:
Of course, I don't have enough friends to share my extra batter with. So I usually make 6 loaves at a time. I freeze the batter for later use plus I freeze the extra bread, plus I share the bread with family when they come around or take some to dad when I go back to Indiana. There are times that I just have to give in and throw away some of the starters. Boy does that hurt. Now with your starter just continue to mush it and feed it until time to cook it again. You will be ready to eat the fresh bread when it is time to fix it again. You can also mix it up. Add chocolate pudding and chocolate chips. Add bananas and banana pudding. Lemon would even be good. Use the imagination and make your own flavor!.
