Recipe by newspapergal

This is a lovely light fruit bread that is perfect with a cup of tea, and would be nice at a bridal or baby shower or brunch. Can use any type of fruit preserve. Recipe from Tulsa World food section. ** This makes TWO LOAVES; it would be easily halved.

I really love this bread! I thought it was a bit sweet. However, that probably depends alot on the preserves used. I made it with blueberry preserves. Such a wonderful, creative, and versatile recipe.
