This is the recipe I used, I found it online I looked up several but this was the main recipe that kept showing up over and over.

day 10. Pour the entire contents of the bag into a non metal bowl. Add 1 C sugar, 1 C milk and 1 C flour.
Measure out 4 separate batters of 1 Cup each and place into 4 one gallon size ziplock bags. Keep one of the bags for yourself to keep yours going and with what is left in the bowl you can make a batch of amish cinnamon bread. Give the other 3 bags away to friends . Make sure to print out instructions for them. If its been a couple days make sure to let them know which day the bag is on so they can continue.
