I was given a starter over 20 years ago and made plenty of breads for my children’s teacher’s and bus drivers, my children are now 31 and 35, I wanted to start back and had to hunt for a recipe to make my own starter and I found this website and glad I did. Now I’m baking every 10 days, the one thing I’m not doing is adding the additional sugar and cinnamon topping because that makes it even more sweet but even without it that does not take away from the taste at all, please keep the recipes coming

What size box of instant butterscotch pudding do we use….small or large?
Darien Gee says
Either size, Trudy — the larger size makes it more moist, but some prefer a single small box so the butterscotch flavor isn’t too overwhelming.
Dana Rodriguez says
I think this cake would be so nice to gift with my new neighbor who looks a tad tired after her move in, of course saving just a little to share with my sister’s family on Christmas morning with pressed coffee.
I have to make this. I just love sweet and salty.I love Tom’s idea of toffee bits.
As all of us know the internet is a source of ideas which we are intended to apply our own slant to, but I followed this recipe pretty closely and loved the result. The only changes I made were to stir in 3/4 cup of toffee bits and substitute Ginger Sugar (candied ginger ground in the cuisinart) as a dusting instead of the caramel syrup and sea salt.
Half of the cake became my neighbors’ introduction to Amish Friendship Cake, along with their new starter. We’ll see what comes back!
The recipe for my Amish Bread starter says to stir with a wooden spoon each day and when feeding it. Is it okay to use an electric mixer when making the bread or am I supposed to use the wooden spoon? What is the reason for the wooden spoon?
Darien (FBK) says
In the “old” days metal (like tin) was uncoated and would react with the starter. As long as your metal is coated, you’re fine, Trudy!
I thought I had butterscotch pudding, but it was coconut cream so we are going to add toasted coconut on top with a powdered sugar glaze
