Tasty Treat Tuesday: Quick Version Amish Friendship Bread

CinnamonBread2I am so excited about this recipe!  I was in college the first time I tasted Amish Friendship Bread and I was hooked from the start.  For those of you familiar with this kind of bread, you know what a lengthy process it is to make.  If I remember correctly, it is a two week process involving daily squishing, mixing, and separating.  Let’s also not forget all the extra starter bags it yeilds that you then have to find to share with others.  The end result is worth all of that, really it is, but I just don’t have that kind of time right now nor the mental capacity involved in remembering to follow the daily steps for two weeks.  My kids and their schedules occupy pretty much all of my brain power these days.  It is for all these reasons that I am so excited about this recipe for cinnamon bread that tastes just like Amish Freindship Bread!  The best part… it takes less than 2 hours to make it.  Thanks for sharing Redfly Creations!
