Amish Friendship Bread - Chocolate Bread Recipe
Preheat the oven to 325 degrees.
1 cup friendship bread (sourdough) starter
1 cup oil
1/2 cup milk
1 cup sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/2 tsp salt
2 cups flour
1 large box instant chocolate pudding
8 oz semi-sweet chocolate chips (or more, if desired)
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp cinnamon
In a large bowl, add bread ingredients. Stir until well mixed. Dough will be very soft and sticky.
In a small bowl, combine crust ingredients. Grease bottom and sides of 2 large loaf pans. Dust the sides and bottom of each pan; reserve remaining crust mixture.
Divide batter evenly into the 2 pans and sprinkle remaining crust mixture over the top. Bake for 60-75 minutes, or until a tootpick comes out clean. Cool until bread loosens from the pan easily. Turn out onto a serving dish.
