What can you do with Amish starter?

     Last week when I had the Amish starter, I kept one bag on the counter to try some new recipes. I froze the other three, so I can have them whenever I feel like it. I squished the bag everyday this week, and finally day ten came yesterday. I used my shortcut, so I didn't end up with any leftovers to freeze or give away. After adding my day ten ingredients, I split the dough up to make pancakes and pumpkin cupcakes with pumpkin cream cheese icing. Both were amazing. The starter added just enough of a "yeasty" taste to make them a little different than normal. The pancakes were for breakfast, and we ended up freezing the leftovers. They were pretty filling.  We took the cupcakes down to celebrate my nephew's last soccer game of the season. He is five, so of course he liked the icing the best. We had extra icing, so we are going to use it to spread on our tiny whole wheat bagels for breakfast this week....Hey, it's cream cheese!

Did I mention before that Debbi Does Dinner has lots of recipes for different things to do with Amish starter? Check out her site....I got both recipes from her.

Basically this is what I did...
Day ten of starter
  • I added 1/4 cup flour, 2 Tbl milk, and 2 Tbl sugar to starter.
  • Scoop out 2 cups of starter to make these pancakes :the only thing I did differently was add 1tsp vanilla and 1tsp cinnamon
  • I had about 1 cup of starter left, so I made these cupcakes

    1. Thanks for the shout out!! I missed that you posted this before! I came to your site to try to find a recipe that I made that I THINK I got from you. I'm so bad about writing things down! It was a mexican ravioli casserole, I'll keep looking at your site. I just saw amish starter and it caught my eye! Thanks!

    2. Those were so good!
      I don't remember a ravioli casserole, but there are a couple of Mexican dishes on here. I hope you can find it, that sounds good!
