An old-time recipe for putting jam into bread. You can use jelly or marmalade as well.
3 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 cup fruit juice (cranberry, orange, etc.)
1-1/4 cups jam
4 tablespoons melted butter (1/2 stick)
1 cup chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350°. Sift together dry ingredients. Beat in egg, juice, 1 cup jam, and butter. Stir in nuts. Pour into greased 9-inch loaf pan and bake 50 to 60 minutes. Spread top with remaining jam and return to oven to 5 minutes to glaze. Or, add all the jam to batter and frost with White Icing.
2 cups powdered sugar
2 tablespoons warm milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
A simple frosting for sweet breads, coffee cakes, and rolls.
Sift sugar, add milk and vanilla, and blend until smooth. For a thicker or thinner icing, adjust amount of milk used. For colored icing, add a drop or two of food coloring. Makes 2 cups.
