    The bread looks so good, but I have one question about the recipe. Is there no kneading required?

      All the stirring to work in the flour substitutes for kneading in this batter bread.

    The sourdough bread looks great but ask for 1 cup of Amish Friendship batter ~ where do I get this or is it something I can make?

    Can these be made in a bread machine? That is what I use all the time.

    The white bread is excellent. I recommend the steam as suggested at the end. Great crust with soft interior. Oh yeah….use lard.

      Glad the recipe worked out for you, Tom!
