Herman Friendship Sweet Sour Dough

Quite some time ago some one gave me a friendship cake starter and have looked high and low to see if I could start it again .. The friendship cake I had was all kinds of canned fruits and it was added into a gallon jar. It was a 30 day wait till you could use it. If any one has this recipe starter for the original friendship cake I am talking about please leave a comment for me.. or comment any way love to hear what people think.. so during my search … I came across this! It is a bread(sweet sour dough) that you can make and add fruits and what ever else you want when the Herman is finished it’s cycle. Here is the starter:

Start your own Herman! (American measurements to follow…I googled it)
2 cups of flour
2 cups of milk
1 cup of sugar
1/3 cup warm water
2 Tb or 2 pkgs active dry yeast

Sprinkle 1 Tb of sugar over the warm water. Sprinkle yeast over this and let stand in

warm place to double in size.
( approx. 10 min. )
Mix milk, remaining sugar, flour and yeast mixture in a plastic or glass container, about the size of a 5 quart ice cream bucket.
Stir, using only a wooden spoon or paddle,
( metal objects retard Herman’s natural growth. )
Cover loosely or place plate over top of container so Herman can breathe.
Herman doubles, even triples at times of vigorous rising.
Place Herman in a warm place overnight. Next day refrigerate loosely covered and try to stir each day.
Then start to give him away to friends!!

Keep Herman’s offspring going! If you receive a Herman baby soon, you’ll know what to do now!

Make a little greeting card and attach it to the Herman you are giving away with the instructions to care for their Herman.
