Modified Amish Friendship Bread

I love Amish Friendship Bread.  I love to cook it and most definitely love to eat it. Drawback?  Pudding has soy in it.  So, after a little research I made this bread the other night.  I would like to say that for those of you looking to eat without the interesting words that are lab created, this really takes the cake.  (Pun intended)  Warning, not everyone likes to get a little starter.  So, just freeze the little 1 cup of "starter" until you're ready to cook with it.  (Just remember to feed your last starter so you'll have more to bake with)  Promise, it turns out just fine.  You'll need to start by making this pudding recipe that I found on
Stir 2 tbsp. cornstarch and 1/2 cup sugar together in a small saucepan. Stir in 1 egg thoroughly. Add 2 cups milk a little at a time, stirring after each addition. Add 2 tbsp. butter and cook over low heat, stirring constantly until thickened and bubbly. Add 1 tsp vanilla.

In a separate bowl (I mix mine together in my KitchenAid, against all popular instructions) mix the following dry ingredients together 2 cups flour, 1/2 cup sugar, 1-1/2 tsp baking powder, 2 tsp cinnamon, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp salt, 1 cup nuts (optional).
To this bowl add your 1(ish) cup of bread starter , the pudding you made, 2 tbs canola oil or melted butter, and 2 eggs.
Pour batter into two well greased (with butter) and sugared bread pans. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour.
