This is a great variation to the traditional Amish Friendship Bread. It’s like eating chocolate cake. This bread freezes well and makes a great gift.
2 c all-purpose flour
1 cup white sugar
1 ½ tsp baking powder
½ tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 (5.9 ounce) package instant chocolate pudding mix
1 c Amish Friendship Bread Starter
1 c vegetable oil
½ c milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease two 9×5 inch loaf pans or bundt pan.
In a large mixing bowl, stir together all-purpose flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, chocolate pudding. Make a well in the center of this mixture. Add Amish friendship bread starter, vegetable oil, milk, eggs and vanilla extract; mix well. Pour batter into prepared loaf pans or bundt pan.
Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into center of the loaf comes out clean, about 60 minutes. Cool on a wire rack for 10 minutes before removing from pan.
