      Title: German friendship cake
 Categories: Cakes, Sourdough, Usenet
      Yield: 1 Cake
 
      1 c  Cake starter

MMMMM------------------------STARTER FOOD-----------------------------
      1 c  Milk
      1 c  Flour, self-raising
      1 c  Sugar

MMMMM----------------------------CAKE---------------------------------
      2 c  Flour, self-raising
      1 c  Sugar
    2/3 c  Oil
      2 t  Cinnamon
      2 t  Vanilla extract
      2    Eggs
    1/2 c  Raisins
    1/2 c  Nuts (or other fruits)
     15 oz Pineapple chunks,
           -drained (one can)
 
  PREPARE STARTER:
  
  Day 1:  Blend the starter feed together, and then hand mix in the
  starter. I find it easiest to mix the flour and sugar together dry,
  add the milk to the starter, and then slowly add the flour and sugar
  to the liquid. The starter should never be beaten with a blender or
  refrigerated. Pour the mixture into a large bowl, cover with
  cling-film or a damp towel, and leave to brew.
  
  Day 2:  Thoroughly mix the sourdough, then leave to brew again.
  
  Day 5:  As day 1
  
  Day 6:  As day 2
  
  Day 10:  Print off three copies of this recipe.  Here now is why this
  is called a friendship cake.  Take 3 cups of Sourdough mixture, and
  give them away with copies of the recipe  as starters to your
  friends. Then proceed with the baking.
  
  MAKING THE CAKE:  Blend all ingredients thoroughly with remaining
  starter. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees F.  Pour mixture into a
  well-greased baking tin. Bake for 1 3/4 hours (less in a fan oven),
  cool.
  
  NOTES:
  
  *  A 10-day Sourdough cake -- This is known as the friendship cake,
  it's a bit like a chain letter in that you have to find a set of
  friends to pass on the starter to.
  
  During preparation put the starter into a very large bowl (it foams
  up), and cover with a lid or with cling film. Yield: Starter and one
  cake.
  
  *  If you don't get cake starter from a friend, you can probably buy
  it in a baking supply store.
  
  *  Vary the spices to taste.  The cake is quite pleasant if you forget
  them.
  
  : Difficulty:  easy.
  : Time:  10 days brewing starter, 30 minutes preparing cake, 2 hours
  baking and cooling.
  : Precision:  measure the ingredients.
