FRIENDSHIP & AMISH FRIENDSHIP BREAD   Leave a comment

Friendship

Friendship is having a good relationship with someone, who we call a friend. People in a friendship have respect and affection for each other. A friendship is different from a romantic relationship; friends do not necessarily love each other romantically.

A friend is a person that someone likes or knows. People who are friends talk to each other and spend time together. They also help each other when they are in trouble or are hurt. Friends are people that can be looked up to and trusted. Sometimes people can’t tell their secrets to their parents so they tell it to their friends. Usually friends have similar interests. A friend is one who admires a person’s skill and helps or encourages them to make the right choices.

The strength of the bond of friendship between two people can vary. If the bond is very strong, they are called best friends. This can usually be achieved by possessing the elements of friendship, by being kind, generous, loyal, honest and by having fun. With these qualities you can truly enjoy the bliss of friendship. There are expectations, demands and complaints in friendship too. Some people say these should not be there in friendship. But two people interact in this world only when there are expectations. Friends can help you materialistically and morally. But if they don’t match with your expectations, it doesn’t mean you will break the friendship. This is what is different in friendship as compared to love relationship between two couples. Its all about understanding, realizing and helping whenever possible.

Amish Friendship Bread

Amish friendship bread is a type of bread or cake made from a sour dough starter that is often shared in a manner similar to a chain letter. The starter is a replacement for baking yeast. It can be used to make many kinds of yeast-based breads, shared with friends, or frozen for future use. The sweet, cake-like Amish cinnamon bread is a common bread that is made from this starter. It is a simple, stirred quick bread It includes a large amount of sugar and vegetable oil, with a mild cinnamon flavour It has characteristics of both pound cake and coffee cake. The flavour of the finished product can be changed by not using cinnamon.

A common recipe using this starter uses one cup (240 ml) of it to make bread. A second cup is saved to start a new cycle. The remaining two cups are given to friends. The process of sharing the starter makes it somewhat like a chain letter. One cup of starter makes one standard loaf of bread.

It can also be called German friendship cake, or “Herman” the German friendship cake.

The starter mix can be made from a recipe of flour, water and yeast. One cup of the mixture is then passed to other people who get instructions on how to keep it alive, usually just saying to give it more ingredients as time passes.
