Kitchen Friend Paula Altenbach (Colorado Springs, CO) experimented with baking this recipe at high altitude and added her own fun twist to the recipe: “I decided to add an additional ½ cup of flour to compensate for my Colorado Springs altitude. After using up my butterscotch and vanilla pudding, I turned to the same flavors in sugar-free version as that was what the pantry coughed up. I also prefer to use a a strip of parchment paper to act as a lift for my loaves. It was best to do what I know to works best, and I am glad I did. This loaf was high and had visual appeal.”

Our book club just read Friendship Bread for this months read and I went in armed with loaves of bread and the Coffee Toffee Bread made into muffins – not to mention about 5 bags of starter! Hope everyone loves this stuff as much as I do! Thanks for a great book and some fabulous recipes that have been shared. I love the book – read it 2x in last 2 years. 🙂

Thanks so much for checking in Kari, and I am so grateful you are reading the novel! Please give everyone my very best regards, and if you want to collect any questions from the members and send 3-5 to me before the meeting (authordariengee [at] gmail.com), I’ll do my best to respond. Otherwise have a great book club session (and happy eating!).
Where can I get some of the Amish Friendship Starter Bread?? I’m in Tillsonburg Ontario Canada and I don’t know any of the Amish people around here.

Irene, the above link in the ingredient list should take you to the starter page so you can make your own. Here it is as well: https://www.friendshipbreadkitchen.com/pantry/amish-friendship-bread-starter
I’m not sure how to post a photo.
This recipe is a keeper! Seriously good. I made it without the icing and added sliced almonds. The butterscotch pudding and coffee flavors go so well together.
