Fun and Tasty Friendship Bread Recipes


Amish Friendship Bread

According to Wikipedia, Amish Friendship Bread is "a type of bread or cake similar to pound cake or coffee cake, made from a sourdough starter that is often shared in a manner similar to a chain letter".

from Wikipedia

While chain letters or chain letter memes aren't very popular nowadays, people concentrate on the "friendship" part of its name: think about all of the good friends you have, or the kind of friends you want to make in the new year. Also, giving a loaf of thick, sugary quick bread is a great way to start or re-kindle a friendship!

When baking Amish Friendship Bread, talk about friends and why we have them. Maybe consider looking up a recipe and make a bunch of loaves to deliver to close friends and even family.
