- 1 cup Amish Friendship Bread Starter
- 3 eggs
- ½ cup melted butter
- ½ cup milk
- ½ cup brown sugar
- ½ teaspoon Mexican vanilla
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
- 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- 2 cups flour
- 1 small box cheesecake instant pudding use vanilla or pumpkin spice if not available
- ½ cup fresh pumpkin mashed
Preheat oven to 325° F (165° C).
In a large mixing bowl, add ingredients as listed.
Grease two large loaf pans.
Dust the greased pans with half of the sugar-cinnamon mixture of ½ cup sugar and 1 ½ teaspoon cinnamon.
Pour the batter evenly into loaf or cake pans and sprinkle the remaining sugar-cinnamon mixture on the top.
Bake for one hour or until the bread loosens evenly from the sides and a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean.
From Elizabeth Thums: "I used ½ cup homemade vanilla pudding. In place of cheesecake pudding, I beat 8 oz. softened cream cheese and ½ cup sour cream together and folded it into the batter. The spicy flavors of the bread were an excellent accompaniment to drinking cinnamon-infused Turkish coffee."
