Amish Loaves

This is what I have been doing the past couple Days.  I made 14 pan loaves of these. I finally decided to try the bunt pan and see if that would not be better.  One batch will make a regular bunt pan.  It turned out nice.  I started another batch.  You have to mash it for ten days.  During that time you feed it more sugar and flour.  On the tenth day you divide the bag, (I put it in a zip lock bag) and you should come out with 4 batches.  Each batch makes 4 small loaves or a regular cake.  Since I am making  some of these for desserts at camp I find the bunt pan will be just right.  I fooled around with the flavors this time.  It takes a large box of pudding mix per batch.
I got chocolate pudding and made chocolate.   They don't last long around here since our grandson  loves chocolate.  Not to say that grandpa loves it too. If you noticed you saw where one chocolate cake was shorter than the other.  That was grandpa's sampling. When these cooked loaves cool you put them in zip lock bags and put them in the freezer.  Just putting them in the fridge overnight makes the moisture come out.  

We have gotten several cooking's of yellow squash out of the garden.   We have other kind of squash planted but these bloomed early.  Right now we are getting a nice shower of rain on them,
which we needed badly.  Tomatoes are coming on, also.
We have a yard long cucumber coming on.  I am anxious to see if they grow that long. 
Tomorrow is the sabbath. Are you anticipating going to the house of God?  I am getting my Sunday School lesson all together.
Pray that all of you have a blessed Sabbath Day.

Hi Aliene! You have been busy gal! Those loaves look yummy! What a wonderful camp treat!!

Fresh squash??!! One of my faves!
Would love to see pics of your garden!! I'm not growing anything this year, except some herbs. Too many failures with a potted garden.

Have a blessed and joyful Sunday! Thanks for your bloggy friendship!

My goodness, that is a lot of work. You have been busy. They look delicious -- wish I had the talent to make them (or anything)!

I used to make those loaves... they keep growing and growing...and no one to take the divisions :) I used to atend a mennonite church when my children were small.. I got lots of recepies from theat eara that were outstanding.

I made 4 loaves of bread yesterday. 3 cranberry/pumkin nut & 1 banana/zuchini nut. I like to make my breads as healthy as possible - so I made them both out of a mixture of 7-grain & whole wheat & reg bread flour. I kinda made up my recepies... have you ever heard of mixing these combos? Me neither, but that's what I had in the freezer, and they turned out marvelous. I share with my daughter's family. My granddaughter even helped me mix them up. I'm teaching her to cook. She's 9 and already wants to be a 'chef' :)

Oh yummy they look really good, and yes indeed, these are the end times, and God said things would wax worse and worse, we are living in it daily, seeing it daily get worse, just when I think I have seen it all, Bam!! some thing happens that actually surprises me.
We just keep looking to our heavens and to Christ, he is the truth the way and the life, no man cometh to the father but by him, amen... Love you lots, Barbara

Ailiene.... Wow! Those look delicious!
Made my mouth water.
How encouraging that you are looking forward to going to church, please pray that the Lord bring people like you to Hinton Baptist Church. This is a pioneering work! It's God's work!
