The state of my starter

September 29, 2008 - 6:59am -- kung fu bbq

Hello bakers.

I've been making my own bread now for about half a year. The italian bread over in the Favorite Recipes is probably the most difficult I've done. I have some other main stay recipes that I use for white/wheat loaves but what I really want to make is sourdough.

 So after checking my calendar and making sure I'm not traveling anywhere I started my starter.

The starter I'm using is a Amish friendship starter. May or may not be the best but I had all the ingredients at the house.

Amish Friendship Bread recipe deviation (pudding-less)

May 28, 2008 - 6:58am -- mardreygraves

After a 10-year hiatus, I have been given another batch of Amish Friendship starter. I do enjoy the sweet breakfast-and-dessert style of the generic recipe that usually travels along with the starter, but I'm hoping to find an alternative to the box of pudding mix that it calls for. I'm curious about why it's even there. Eggs are already present, and I could certainly add in some vanilla extract. What is the purpose of pudding mix, can it simply leave it out, or is there a (healthier and less industrially processed) alternative I can substitute?

Thanks in advance!
