BREAD RECIPE
Whisk together in a medium bowl: flour, pudding mix, baking powder, cinnamon, salt and baking soda. Set aside.

In a large bowl combine remaining ingredients, mixing well.

Stir in the flour mixture a little bit at a time. Do not over mix. Just mix until the wet and dry ingredients are blended.

Pour into two 9x13 inch loaf pans.

Bake at 350 degrees F. for about 50 - 70 minutes.

Try experimenting with different things such as pudding mixes, fruit, nuts, chocolate chips, etc.

This is a great recipe for churches and Christmas!

You can freeze the starter in one cup portions. It will take about 3 hours at room temperature to thaw.

Make sure you punch a hole in it at the top of the mason jar lid, or the gases will not escape and may pop the top off the jar.
