    Does anyone have the recipe for this delicious cake--you tend to it for 30 days by adding sugar and flour to the starter and then make scrumptious cakes with canned fruit and give it to friends?

    I used to have it--but 3 moves later it seems to have vanished...

    Thank you

    Here is the recipe for Friendship Cake that I have....I have never made this but have it in my recipe files!! Good luck, hope this is the one!!

    1st Day -1 1/2 cups starter
    1 1/2 cups sugar
    1 large can sliced pineapple & juice (16 oz.)

    10th Day - 2 cups of sugar
    1 large can chunk pineapple & juice (16 oz.)

    20th Day - 2 cups sugar
    1 large can fruit cocktail & juice (16 oz.)
    1 - 10 oz. jar of Marchino cherries & juice

    30th Day - Drain fruit juices - divide fruit into thirds

    Makes 3 cakes

    A. Divide juice into 1 1/2 cup portions

    B. Place in a tight container and give to a friend plus a copy of this recipe as soon as possible.

    C. Starter should be used in 5 days.

    D. During the 30 days do NOT refrigerate.

    E. Place in a covered container at room temp. May bubble and lid pop off. This is ok as long as there is something covering it.

    F. Cake may be frozen up to 1 year. Do NOT freeze juice.

    Make cake by hand - Do NOT use mixer

    1 box of yellow cake mix (Duncan Hines Deluxe)
    1 2/3 cup of fruit
    2/3 cup of oil
    4 eggs
    1 box of instant vanilla pudding (4 1/2 cup serving size)
    1/3 cup of juice
    1 cup of chopped nuts

    Mix all together, bake in a greased and floured tube or bundt pan at 350 degrees for 50 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.

    This was typed while having a 5 year old pulling on my arms to go outside and play in the snow!! so watch for typos!!

    I found this on in my recipe box

    Amish Friendship Bread
    1 cup flour
    1 cup warm water
    1/2 cup sugar
    1 pkg. yeast
    Mix all starter ingredients well and place in a medium-sized glass bowl. Cover with dinner plate so as not to cover too tightly. Let stand overnight in a warm place. Stir each day for four days. IMPORTANT: Do no refrigerate batter at any time!
    On the fifth day, add:
    1 cup flour
    1 cup milk
    1 cup sugar
    Stir each day until the 10th day. Then add:
    1 cup flour
    1 cup milk
    1 cup sugar
    Stir. Measure out three 1-cup starters and make three copies of the instructions for distribution to three friends. (The starters will be the first day of the batter-making process.)
    With the remaining starter, make the following streusel or bread.
    Friendship Starter Streusel
    Add this to remaining batter:
    2/3 cup cooking oil
    1 cup sugar
    2 cups flour
    2 teaspoons baking soda
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    3 eggs
    Mix well and spoon half of the batter into a greased and floured 13-by-9-inch baking pan.
    In a separate bowl, make the streusel by combining:
    1/3 cup margarine, melted
    1/2 cup sugar
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    1/2 cup quick oats
    1 cup nuts (optional)
    Sprinkle half the streusel on the batter. Cover with remaining batter and top with remaining streusel.
    Bake at 350 degrees for 35 to 40 minutes.

    Amish Friendship Bread
    To remaining batter, add:
    1 cup sugar
    2 eggs
    2/3 cup oil
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    2 cups flour
    11/4 teaspoons baking powder
    1/2 teaspoon soda
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    Optional: nuts, raisins, diced
    fruit, coconut, grated
    carrots, chocolate chips.
    Mix well and pour into two well-greased (and dusted with cinnamon/sugar) full-size loaf pans or three to four small loaf pans. Sprinkle additional cinnamon/sugar on top.
    Bake at 350 degrees 45 to 50 minutes. Cool 10 minutes before removing from pan. Or, if desired, glaze with confectioners' sugar icing.
