At one time, before having my children, I worked outside of the home. There, I made a lot of friends and we were always trying out new recipes. One of the gals brought in a “starter bag” for Amish friendship bread one day. Honestly, I was kind of afraid of it. She gave me directions to go along with it how it had to sit for so many days and be kneeded on certain days, etc. etc. Well, I gave it a try even with all my apprehensions…and it was yummy!
We did it a few times there at work before I became a full time stay-at-home mom. That’s when the craving for this bread hit me again. Except now, I didn’t have any friends to get a starter bag from.
I took to the web and found this recipe on Recipe Lion. It looked just like what I remembered so I figured, why not? I gave it a try and it was just as good as I remembered! My kids loved it too. Now I can make it whenever I want…who needs friends? Haha!
These little loaves of bread are perfect for serving up with a Sunday brunch, after school snack, or even for a quick weekday breakfast. It’s kind of like eating a pastry but without all the sweet and sticky sugariness. My kids love this bread with a pat of butter melted into it. If I make it ahead of time, I’ll pop a slice in the microwave for a few seconds to warm it up and it’s just like it came fresh out of the oven!
Check out what they are saying about this recipe over at Recipe Lion:
“I really enjoyed this recipe with the apples in it; it had just the right balance of sweetness, was not cloying at all.”
