It's great to pass starts to the neighbors too!
Here's how to make the starter.
Do not use any metal bowls or utensils for the starter.
It will sit on your counter fermenting for days.
Once you make the starter, just keep it going and you'll never have to make it again!
You will need:
1/4 C Warm Water
3 Tablespoons of dry active yeast
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 cup milk
Then add to the other ingredients.
Then set it on the counter and wait!
Day2-Day 5: Just squish and mash the bag...don't open it or anything. Just a minute of squishing.
On Day 6: Open the bag and add 1 cup of milk, 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of flour.
Then zip it shut and squish it until mixed.
Day 7-9: Just squish the bag again.
Pour out the contents into a non metal bowl.
(I had 5 cups of starter, so it made 4 bags of 1 cup servings...the last cup is to bake with)
Label with the date. (yes, I was one day behind...oh well)
At this point, you can deliver the starters to neighbors or friends with the printable instructions below.
They can make their own...and keep one for yourself to continue!
If this is overwhelming, at day 10 you can FREEZE your bag
and pull it out when you are ready to bake! It's great to keep on hand!
Add 1 cup of starter
1 cup oil
½ cup milk
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons cinnamon
½ teaspoon vanilla
1½ teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon salt
½ teaspoon baking soda
2 cups flour
2 small boxes of Vanilla Pudding
1 cup nuts or dried fruit (optional)
Grease the pans and sprinkle them with cinnamon and sugar
(1/2 cup sugar, 1 tablespoon cinnamon)
dump the rest of the cinnamon and sugar inside.
If you are doing loafs, save the rest to sprinkle on the top of the dough.
Bake it for 1 hour in a 350*F oven.
