This Coffee Cake Amish Friendship Bread submitted by Kitchen Friend Karen is the perfect recipe for Sunday morning brunch with the family.
If adding you’re adding chocolate chips to this recipe, eliminate the usual amount of cinnamon.
Kitchen Friend Janet Lottes Young had fun with her variation of this recipe: “For a church coffee hour, I made the Coffee Cake Amish Friendship Bread, substituting coriander for the cinnamon in the batter, doubling the streusel topping amount and swirling it in, then adding a vanilla glaze after it was baked. The pastor’s wife said it was the best coffee cake she’s ever had! Thanks, Friendship Bread Kitchen!”
You can also play with the different add-ins in this Coffee Cake Amish Friendship Bread. Throw in a cup of raisins, chocolate chips, apples, or your favorite nuts! Bake up a batch of this coffee cake and serve it alongside an easy breakfast casserole for a brunch feast!

There is no where it says what size of pan. For servings does say it makes 2 loafs but they were way to thin in size.
I have starter that I separated after the 10 days and froze. Do I need to put it through the ten day cycle again before using it?
Hi Toni! It really is up to you. Here’s a great post that talks about the different options you have when you revive your starter: https://www.friendshipbreadkitchen.com/tutorial-reviving-frozen-amish-friendship-bread-starter/
how can i get a strted Amish friend ship bread starter
Hi Pam! Here’s our Amish Friendship Bread starter recipe: https://www.friendshipbreadkitchen.com/amish-friendship-bread-starter/
Based on the amount of batter, I used a 9×9 pan. I added pecans because that is what I had on hand. The batter was thicker than I expected. I made my usual streusel topping and layered it between two layers of batter in the pan, with some for the top. It tastes delicious.
When I make this it’s really thick and takes about 2 hrs to bake. Does anyone else have this problem? Only thing I can guess is I’m sifting all the dry ingredients together, is this causing too much flour? Help

I added 2 small chopped peeled apple and it was VERY GOOD. This is my first time of using the starter.

Made this today for the first time. I substituted 1/2 the flour with King Arthur’s White Whole Wheat flour and 1/2 the oil with unsweetened applesauce. Turned out really good! Thank you for this website and all the recipes – I was recently given amish bread starter for the first time and now I have a lot of it!!
great tasting yum,yum
I saw the comment about using a 9X13, so I tried this, only it was WAY to big for one batch. I made two batches for the 9X13.
Also I buttered the pan and instead of flouring it I did a cinnamon sugar mixture. Turned out awesome!! I used the same mixture that I used for snickerdoodles, because I had some left over.
couldn’t you cut this recipe to half and use 9 by 9 pan?
I wouldn’t, the recipe itself was to small for the 13X9 so I wouldn’t cut the recipe in half to fill a 9 X 9.
Hi……..just to clear this up for me….if I make this in a bundt pan I’d need to double the recipe as well? Since in a comment the baking pans are pretty universal but this recipe wasn’t enough to fill the 9 x 13…….hope that’s clear:))
