Amish Friendship Bread with No Starter and No Pudding

If you google Amish Friendship bread there are some pretty humorous posts out there about how people go running when they see you coming with "starter" and I agree. It makes great bread but who wants to babysit a science experiment on your counter continually? It's fun one time but after that, it becomes more than most people want to deal with.

So here is what we did today with yummy results! We don't want to add instant pudding and we don't care about the "do not use metal" rule. And so far so good...we have survived and the bread was delicious!

Amish Friendship Bread with No Pudding and No Starter
In the bowl of a KitchenAid Mixer (metal!) combine-
3/4 cup milk
3/4 cup flour
3/4 cup sugar 

Then add-
2 cups flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup oil
1/2 cup milk
3 eggs

1/2 cup cocoa (if chocolate is wanted, when is chocolate not wanted?)
3/4 cup plain yogurt (in place of "instant pudding" in original recipe)

1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 tsp. salt

Mix together in a small bowl- 
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Grease pan(s) and sprinkle with part of your cinnamon/sugar mixture fill pans with batter and then sprinkle remaining cinnamon/sugar on top before baking.

Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 40 minutes. Time will depend on size of loaf pans. Today we used mini bundt pans and those took 25 minutes and our medium sized loaf pans took 50 minutes. Use a toothpick to determine if done.
