Amish Friendship Bread Variations

Note: this variation requires the basic Amish batter

Chocolate Covered Cherries Variation

Rhonda Kirschmann writes:

I like making "Chocolate Covered Cherries" version of the Amish Friendship Cake (Bread - AW). It's great for people who always wanted to make the candy version, but couldn't pull it off.

You use Cherry Jello instead of Pudding Mix. You use Marichino Cherry Juice instead of Vanilla Extract. You add 1/2 cup Marichino Cherries and 1/2 cup mini-chocolate chips. I don't use nuts for this one.

I like to make this as a Bundt Cake topped with chocolate glaze and garnished with marichino cherries on the top. For Glaze (I never measure when I make glaze, I'm estimating here): about 1 tbsp cocoa powder, 1 or 2 cup confectioners sugar, 1-2 tbs marichino cherry juice and milk (as needed for consistency).

* Note: This recipe requires the Amish basic batter. This is the batter that results after day 10 in the basic Amish Friendship Bread recipe

Order Your Starter and Accessories from Us. (A starter is necessary to make Amish Friendship Bread and ours will get you going if you don't have one. While our starter is a "sourdough" type, don't let this deter you; the sweetness of the Amish Friendship Bread ingredients will be effectively enhanced by the slightly sour flavor of the starter.)
