Quicker Baked Potato

Try this method for speeding up the potato baking process (for a better texture than those that you microwave). Pre-heat the oven to 400. Place the potato in boiling water for 10 minutes. Bake for 30 minutes. This will cut the cooking time in half.

breads, desserts

1 friendship starter
1 cup sugar
1 cup flour
1 cup milk
1 bread
1 cup friendship starter
2/3 cup oil
1 3 eggs
2 cup flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup sugar

FRIENDSHIP STARTER: Day 1: Make the starter dough using 1 cup sugar, 1 cup flour, and 1 cup milk. Stir the mixture. Do not use metal spoons or mixers. Use a glass or plastic bowl. Cover the bowl loosely with a paper towel, cloth, waxed paper or plastic wrap. Do not refrigerate the mixture. Keep at room temperature. Days 2,3,4: Stir the mixture down once each day with a wooden or plastic spoon. Day 5: Add 1 cup each of sugar, flour and milk. Stir. Days 6,7,8,9: Stir once each day. Day 10: Add 1 cup each of sugar, flour and milk. Remove 3 cups of the mixture and give 1 cup each to three friends to make Amish Friendship Bread. BREAD: Mix all the ingredients well with a wooden spoon. Pour into 2 well-greased and sugared bread loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 40-45 minutes. This freezes very well. Great to give as a gift. NOTE: Raisins, chopped apples, drained crushed pineapple, dates, chopped nuts or chocolate chips may be added to the batter before pouring into the pans. Use 3/4 cup of whatever you desire to add.
