Holy Experience Dare

This past weekend, Ann Voscamp from A Holy Experience DARED her readers "to tag a little something with this free printable and give it to someone". Well, being the cooking blog this is, I thought I'd make a little something sweet for my daughter's sweet preschool teacher to take on her dare... So this morning I made a batch of Amish Friendship Bread but altered it to include some of my homemade pumpkin butter! Because the recipe makes two loaves we were able to have some for breakfast this morning and I then wrapped up the second loaf for my daughter to take to preschool tomorrow morning. I hope Ms. Kelly likes it! :) Here is both the recipe and the results for you to check out!

Pumpkin Butter Amish Friendship Bread

1 cup Amish Friendship Bread starter
3 eggs, lightly beaten
1/2 cup milk
1 cup pumpkin butter
1 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
2 cups flour
1 small box vanilla instant pudding
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 325°F. Grease 2 large loaf pans. Combine 1/2 cup sugar and 1 tsp cinnamon in a small bowl. "Flour" pans with this sugar/cinnamon mixture, reserving any extra for the end. In a large bowl, combine remaining ingredients in order listed mixing well to combine. Divide mixture between the two pans and sprinkle with remaining sugar/cinnamon mixture. Bake for 1 hr or until a toothpick comes out clean. Let cool for 10 minutes in the pans before turning out onto a cooling rack to cool completely. When completely cool, store in a sealed container or ziplock bag.
