Amish Friendship Bread

Chris, one of my co-workers, went to our Indy lab last week where one of the techs had brought in starters for Amish Friendship Bread. He brought one back for me because he thought I would like it. I think that actually translates into, "If I bring a starter back for her maybe she'll make it & bring it to work & feed me!". I don't mind all that & I'm ok with baking it & taking it in to work for the guys to munch on. My only reservation was that I wouldn't be at home this weekend to "mush the bag" & release the air bubbles. So I put the big ziplock bag in a bowl with a lid & left on our trip. My concern was that the air would build up & pop the ziplock. Here's what I found on the kitchen counter when I got home tonight.

Wow! That was an accident waiting to happen, wasn't it? Enjoy the bread! It is yummy.

Whoa, that thing is ready to blow! That bread turns out so yummy though doesn't it take like 10 days to ferment (if memory serves me)? I hated waiting so long for it!

Someone gave some to me and I just threw it away. I love to bake, but don't have the time to keep up on the 10 day process. It's good bread though.
