Chocolate Friendship Bread with White Chocolate Chips

You might remember my chicken whisperer, goat wrangler, dear friend gave me an Amish Friendship Bread starter bag for Christmas.  Well, I've been playing around with it and the idea of chocolate came along.  I never met a piece of chocolate I didn't like. 

Here are the complete directions.  I hope you like it! 

Please note:
DO NOT use any type of metal spoon or bowl for mixing.
DO NOT refrigerate.
If air gets in the bag, let it out
It is normal for the batter to rise and ferment
________Day 1- Do Nothing
________Day 2– Mash the Bag
________Day 3– Mash the Bag
________Day 4– Mash the Bag
________Day 5– Mash the Bag
________Day 6– Add to the Bag: 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar and 1 cup milk, Mash the Bag
________Day 7– Mash the Bag
________Day 8– Mash the Bag
________Day 9– Mash the Bag

1. Pour entire contents of the bag into a non-metal bowl. ADD 1½ cups sugar and 1½ cups milk.
2. Measure out 4 separate batters of 1 cup each into a 1 gallon Ziplock Bags. Keep a starter for yourself and give away 3 others to friends along with a copy of this recipe (Note: you will be baking every 10 days if you keep a starter. ) The bread is very good and makes a great gift. Only the Amish know how to create a starter, so if you give all of yours away, you will have to wait until someone gives you one back. Should this recipe not be passed to a friend on the first day, be sure to date the bag, and be sure to let them know what day the bag is on.
Baking Instructions:
1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
2. To Remaining Batter add the following:
 2 eggs
 1 cup butter (or ½ cup oil and ½ cup applesauce)
 ½ cup milk
 2 cups flour
 1½ tsp baking power
 ½ tsp of each: vanilla, baking soda and salt
 1 large box of instant chocolate pudding
 1 bag white chocolate chips

3. Grease 2 loaf pans (or one loaf pan and one muffin tin.)
4. Pour the batter evenly into the pans.  Bake for 1 hour for loaf pan (less for muffins), cool until bread loosens from the sides.
Enjoy!  This stuff won’t last long! 
Thank you for stopping by!

  1. Do the Amish allow this? It looks way more sinful than putting a lightening rod on the barn!
