I first had Friendship Cake when I was a teenager. I loved it! My best friend gave me a cup of the starter culture, and within a few weeks everyone in the town we lived in had made it and you couldn’t give the starter away for love nor money!
Several years later, I realised that the cake was actually a form of Sourdough, and I’d been making sourdough bread for years. I had been searching the internet for a friendship cake recipe similar to the one I had as a teenager, and finally found one. I’ve changed this one drastically from the original recipe I found, however this tastes just like I remember the one in my teenage years did.
