I received this "starter" a few years ago.  I didn't add the oil to the
recipe and it turned out fine.  But, I didn't like the bread itself.
Next time I made it, I improvised and did not add the pudding, oil, and
I added a lot more flour.  I didn't like the really slimey texture of
the finished bread from the original recipe.  

As a side note:  It makes a lot of bread if you don't end up giving a
lot of the starter away so I started freezing it.  Freezing does not
harm the starter.
