Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I generally make 2 sets of loaves, for a total of 4 loaves. Or make as many as you want if you don't want to or can't hand out the starter. You can freeze the starter and pull it out as a day one whenever you'd like some Amish bread. You can also just take out the starter and add the day ten ingredients to it, thus using up the starter and ending the chain! You can make as many variations as there are flavors of pudding, just use your imagination!
