    Amish Friendship Bread variations

    Various ways with the starter from a newsgroup.

    Chocolate Variations

    Note: these variations require the basic Amish Friendship Bread batter

    Robin Sandwick, Charlotte, NC

    Replace the vanilla pudding with chocolate and add 1/2 cup each of
    chocolate chips and coconut. I use small (about 1 cup size) bundt pans and bake
    for 45 - 50 minutes

    Becky Stathos

    Instead of using two loaf pans, I bake it in a bundt pan. Another
    favorite is to use chocolate instant pudding, and add pecans, chocolate chips and
    coconut. Let your imagination and taste buds guide you.

    Karen & Randy Bell Maggie Valley, North Carolina

    Here's one we came up with ourselves .... Substitute almond ALMOND
    flavoring (NOT Imitation) for the vanilla flavoring... substitute WHITE
    CHOCOLATE pudding For the vanilla pudding....`

    Sharon Allardyce

    My variation for the Friendship Bread is a chocolate one, but I use
    1/4 cup cocoa, or even a little more (I prefer Hershey's European Chocolate), and
    either the vanilla or chocolate pudding can be used. I reduce the cinnamon to
    half (1 teaspoon). Everyone that tastes it thinks it is outstanding. The
    cinnamon gives it an even better taste than just using chocolate alone.

    Marilyn Di Palma from Sedona, AZ

    1 to 1 1/2 cups chocolate chips - this is great if you put the
    chocolate chips in a bowl and shake 1/2 teaspoon extra cinnamon to coat them. This is very
    popular. 1 to 1 1/2 cup chocolate chips and orange zest to taste.

    SA Brown

    I substitute chocolate pudding for the vanilla and add 1 cup of
    chocolate chips for an awesome Chocolate Chocolate Chip Bread. My friends beg for it! I
    even had a restaurant ask me to bake it for them. Try it, you'll like it!

    Banana and Zucchini Bread Variations

    Note: these variations require the basic Amish Friendship Bread batter

    Robin Sandwick, Charlotte, NC

    Use banana cream pie pudding and two mashed bananas. I have also
    added 1/4 cup of chocolate chip to this on occasion. I use the small bundt pans and
    bake for about 40 - 50 minutes.

    Jean M. French

    For banana bread, I substitute banana cream pudding mix and a mashed
    banana, and omit the cinnamon.

    Robin Sandwick, Charlotte, NC

    Add 1 cup of grated zucchini. Make sure you squeeze out the excess
    liquid. bake for about 75 minutes but start checking after 50 minutes.

    Miscellaneous Variations

    Note: these variations require the basic Amish Friendship Bread batter

    Carol Williamson Ontario, Canada

    Carol loves to make Friendship Bread with dried apples and caramel
    instant pudding (makes it like caramel apples).

    Sandy Moffet, Olympia WA

    Last night I tried 3/4 cup white chocolate chips, 3/4 cup macadamia
    nuts and used cheesecake pudding. Delicious!!!

    Marilyn Di Palma from Sedona, AZ

    Substitute 2 tablespoons molasses for equal amount of sugar and add
    spices to make gingerbread.

    Becky Stathos

    I like to throw in a box of chopped dates and a cup of chopped
    pecans. Then, instead of using two loaf pans, I bake it in a bundt pan. Let your
    imagination and taste buds guide you.

    Deborah Andrews, Newberry Springs, CA

    I add 1 cup of drained crushed pineapple, 1 cup shredded coconut and
    pistachio pudding (instead of vanilla). Very yummy.

    Cherii Martin's Banana Amish Friendship Bread
    Omit cinnamon and vanilla pudding in the basic recipe and add two
    bananas (mashed)

    Cherii Martin's Chocolate Amish Friendship Bread
    Omit cinnamon and vanilla pudding from the basic recipe and add 1 -
    (5.1 oz) box of instant chocolate pudding, 3 tsp. cocoa and 3/4 cup chocolate chips.
    Bake for 1-1/2 to 1-3/4 hours.

    Cherii Martin's Apple Cinnamon Friendship Bread

    Suzette Pierce's Pudding, Chocolate Chip and Nut Variations
    Suzette Pierce writes: "You can use many different flavors of
    pudding. My favorite is pistachio flavor. You may also use different flavors of chocolate
    chips and nuts."

    Lori Panzino's Butterscotch Amish Friendship Bread
    Lori Panzino writes: "Add 1 box of butterscotch pudding and 1 cup of
    butterscotch chips. We bake the cake in a 31" x 9" pan. It's my family's favorite
    cake! She adds "Don't forget to omit the vanilla pudding"
