Here we are again, time to share an Amish Friendship Bread recipe. Since It is October I have created a Pumpkin one.
I was asked last time if I share the starter. I do not have many friends who cook. I have shared it with some. Now I am sharing the recipes. Today I will find a neighbor who will like the Starter and share a loaf of the bread with them.
Amish Pumpkin Nut Bread
1-3/4 cup Starter
1/2 cup Pumpkin
1/2 cup honey
4 Tablespoon Melted butter.
1/2 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
Mix above ingredients together.
2 cups flour
2 teaspoon Pumpkin Pie spice (I used McCormick)
1-1/2 teaspoon Baking powder
1/2 teaspoon Baking Soda
1/4 teaspoon Sea Salt
Add to the wet ingredients. mix well
fold in 3/4 cup chopped Pecans*
*a tip: add about 2 Tablespoons of the sifted dry ingredients to the nuts; it will help the nuts to well distribute throughout the bread.
Put into two greased and sugared 4x8 bread pans. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 40 minutes.
