“A gluten-free, casein-free variation for Amish Friendship Bread Starter.”
1 (.25 ounce) package active dry yeast
1/4 c warm water
1 cup gluten free flour blend (such as King Arthur)
1 cup white sugar
1 cup vanilla almond, soy or coconut milk
- Dissolve the yeast in water. Let stand 10 minutes.
- In a 2 quart glass, plastic or ceramic container, combine the flour and sugar and mix thoroughly.
- Slowly add the milk and dissolved yeast mixture. Cover loosely and let stand at room temperature until bubbly.
- This is day one of the ten day cycle. For the next ten days, handle starter according to the instructions for Amish Friendship Bread.
Use gluten-free flour blend and almond, soy or coconut milk on days 6 and 10 for feeding.
From Kitchen Friend Brenda Boltz: “This is the third jar I’ve tried with the starter. It blew the lids off the first two — a 1/2 gallon mason jar and a one gallon mason jar.”
