Full Answer

To make Martha Stewart's recipe, place 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar and 1 cup milk in a 1-gallon resealable bag. Seal, and knead until well combined. Let sit overnight at room temperature.

For the next four days, knead the mixture once a day. On the sixth day, add 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar and 1 cup milk. Seal, and knead again. For the next three days, knead the mixture twice a day.

On the 10th day, transfer the mixture to a bowl, and add 1 cup flour, 1 cup sugar and 1 cup milk. Mix, and place 1 cup each of the mixture into three resealable bags. Seal, and give each bag of the starter to a friend.

Preheat the oven to 330 degrees Fahrenheit, and add 1 cup vegetable oil to the rest of the starter with 3 eggs, 1 teaspoon vanilla and 1/2 cup milk. Stir, and set aside. In another bowl, mix together 2 cups flour, 1 cup sugar, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 2 teaspoons cinnamon and 1 teaspoon salt, as well as 1 3.4-ounce package vanilla pudding and 1 cup chopped walnuts or pecans. Add dry ingredients to the starter mixture, and stir.

Divide batter between 2 8-by-5-inch loaf pans. Mix together 3/4 cup sugar and 2 teaspoons cinnamon, and sprinkle over batter. Bake for one hour.
