Yogurt Chocolate Cake made with Amish Friendship Bread Starter

I got tired of my Amish Friendship Bread Starter being in a zip lock bag on my cupboard so I put it in a crock that has a lid. It looks kind of gross in a baggy, and sometimes it would leak. It's hard to explain to people why you have this goo in a ziplock bag that's full of air! It's not even noticeable now! I just give it a stir every day, and it's working great! I use to keep a sour dough starter this way, they are pretty forgiving! Sometimes I forget to add the flour, sugar and milk on the right day, but it works to add it even the day you want to use it. And, you can use it everyday if you want, just don't use it all, and add some more flour, sugar and milk to it.

This is a really nice fudgy dense cake. The kids are gobbling it up!
