Favorite Holiday Cake

Postby skyhightree1 » Thu Nov 21, 2013 10:20 am

While sitting home today resting and talking with my grandmother we talked about the cakes she used to make and she said we still got time to do our favorite cake for Xmas I said gma we sure do. We will be starting our Friendship cake this sunday and it should be ready by xmas. Does anyone else make one for xmas? I can take pics of the progress and post them incase someone may want to make one sometime. Just let me know.

Doe's Gram make her own starter?? I think the wife and I got sick once off of friendship bread. So we haven't made any in many years. Sure was good though. But once you get food poisoning from something it's hard to ever try it again.

Yes, We make our own because of that same reason. We will keep the left over starter for about 6 months if we don't use it we toss it. I did sit down and drank some one time it was pretty potent stuff lol Fermented really well if I kept dranking it im sure I would have gotten pretty bad off. I think if youre gonna share or use the starter it should be used pretty quickly IMO.. We will start from scratch Sunday and go from there. I have never had friendship bread I may look up a recipe and see what alls in it.

The recipe my wife used was called Amish cinnamon bread. But we all called it friendship bread, because they always shared the starter. Man was it good, might get her to try it again. All she has to do is leave it sitting where our kids can see it, and they will try it out. :D
