Fiendship Cake and Starter

Hi all! I made this yesterday and I have been faithfully taking care of the starter. I also wanted to let you know that I usually try the recipes before I post them, so I can let you know of anything that you may need to know. If I haven't explained any thing that you need to know please let me know.Thanks, here it is.

*Friendship Cake And Starter*

Serves: 16
makes: 2 cakes

Note: If the cake browns to quickly, cover with foil. You can get more servings if you make smaller slices. That will also lower the nutrition value. You can use ant type of nuts and raisins instead of dried cranberries.

1 Cup flour
1 Cup water
1/2 Cup sugar
1 Tbls. yeast

For feeding:
1 Cup flour,As Needed
1 Cup milk, As Needed
1 Cup sugar, As Needed

Coffee Cake:
2/3 Cup, oil
1 Tsp vanilla
1 Cup sugar
2 Cups flour
1/2 Tsp. baking soda
1 1/4 Tsp. baking powder
1/2 Tsp. salt
3 eggs
1 Tsp. cinnamon
1/2 Cup Pecans, Optional
1/2 Cup Dried Cranberries

Streusel Topping:
1/3 Cup butter, Melted
1/2 Cup sugar
1/2 Cup brown sugar, packed
2 Tsp. cinnamon
1/2 Cup Oats, Quick-Cooking
1/2 Cup Pecans, Optional

Mix all Starter ingredients (flour, water, sugar, yeast) in a bowl or a zip-lock bag; if using a bowl cover loosely with a lid or plate. Place the bowl of starter in a warm place and stir each day (or squeeze the bag). On the 5 Th and 10 Th days add 1 cup flour, 1 cup milk and 1 cup sugar. On the 10 Th day wait a couple hours after feeding and then remove 2 cups starter for restarting. Keep 1 cup for yourself and give 1 cup to a friend. The remainder of the starter add all Coffee Cake batter ingredients; mix well. Place half the batter into two greased and floured loaf pans. Now mix streusel topping and sprinkle half of it over the batter. Add the remaining batter, then the remaining streusel topping and bake at 350°F for 1 hour or until the cake tests done.
