  • You'll have a little left in the bowl. Add to it oil, eggs, milk, and vanilla and mix well.
  • In a separate bowl mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, baking soda, vanilla pudding mix, and fruit or nuts (optional).
  • Mix all ingredients together. Spray the bottom of two loaf pans. Split the batter between the pans. Sprinkle with cinnamon sugar to cover the tops.
  • Bake 1 hour at 325 degrees F.
  • Note: the starter bags should be left out on the countertop. Do not refrigerate.
  • Disclaimer: I have no actual idea what the prep time it. I just put 10 minutes to fill the blank. Servings is relative too.
