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.
