I posted earlier, on day six of my starter, about why I was baking friendship bread. Well, day ten fell on last Thursday and it was time to bake!
I had all intentions of baking while the kids were still awake, but things got kind of crazy so it had to wait until after bedtime.
When I started to bake, I realized we were out of milk, I only had one bread pan, and I would need more flour. Thankfully my wonderful husband volunteered to trek to the grocery store for the needed supplies. By the time we started mixing the first batch it was after 8:30 pm. We wrapped up after 11:00 pm, which is way past my bedtime!
I decided to make two different variations. The loaf on the left is a coffee toffee flavor and the loaf on the right is a cherry cheesecake flavor. You can find all kinds of recipes for friendship bread starter here at the Friendship Bread Kitchen
Now, as you remember, I can’t eat dairy so I’m not sure how they turned out, but I can tell you that both my husband and son love the cherry cheesecake flavor and the loaf of coffee toffee friendship bread that I took to work was gone by 9:00 am.
I really enjoyed everything about my experience from reading the novel, caring for the starter, baking the bread, and sharing the starter with friends.
My next mission; to make a dairy free starter so I can partake in the bread too!
