Starter Dough Recipe, & ?s about it

Karla | Dec 31, 2003 05:36 PM

I received this recipe, and the starter dough today on day 3. The directions for the dough begin when you receive your dough. Then there is a recipe that comes with it.

My first questions are:
Can this starter dough possibly have other types of quick bread recipes?
Can you add yeast to it, and make yeast breads?
How long does this dough keep before it becomes a science project?
Can I freeze starter dough, and if so, at what stage?

RECIPE: Amish Cinnamon Bread

Day 1, squeeze bag several times, and repeat days 2-5.
Day 6, add: 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar, and 1 cup milk, squeeze bag several times.
Day 7-9, squeeze bag several times.
Day 10, In a large non-metal bowl, combine batter with 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar, and 1 cup milk. Mix well. Pour 1/2 cup of this batter into four separate 1 gallon zip lock bags, and give away with instructions.

To the remaining batter in the bowl, add:
1 cup oil, 1 cup sugar, 1 1/2 tsp baking powder, 3 large eggs, 1/2 tsp salt, 2 cups flour, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1/2 cup milk, 1 large box of vanilla pudding, 1 tsp cinnamon.

Mix well. In a separate bowl, mix 1 tsp. cinnamon with 3 tsp sugar. Sprinkle into 2 well-greased, loaf pans before pouring batter in. Bake at 325º for one hour, or until done.

I have no idea where this recipe came from, or who the dough came from. The lady who gave us the recipe, et al, and a sample of the finished product doesn't either, but it was very good. I'd hate to pass this recipe on tho as Amish, if it's a made-up thing. I am too busy to really babysit starter doughs, but will use this one. And I love chocolate, AND it is a sweet dough. I am hoping also a versatile one as well. Any info is appreciated.
