Amish Sourdough Friendship Bread

Amish Sourdough Bread

This recipe can also be used to make rolls. Add more warm water to the recipe if the starter is too thick. 


1 cup Amish Friendship Bread Starter

6 cups bread flour

1 tablespoon kosher salt

1/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup corn oil

1 1/2 cups very warm water


Put all ingredients in a very large bowl (20-cup size) and mix until batter is stiff.  Oil hands with corn oil and knead dough into a mound.  Add extra oil to the bowl, cover and let rise over night or until the dough has risen to fill up the bowl.  Remove dough from bowl and knead.  Lightly oil 2 or 3 loaf pans.  Cut dough into even pieces and place in the loaf pans.  Let dough rise again all day or night.  When ready to bake, preheat and bake at 325° F until golden brown.
