From the Crisco website. Posting for safe keeping. I think I will try this with some homemade lavendar peach jam I have instead of the preserves. Times are approximate. This make 3 mini loaves but it could probably be done in a loaf pan.

Made this with some peach Amaretto preserves that we'd recently purchased, & had A GREAT TASTING LOAF! This time around I made it as did NorthwestGal, but I fully intend to make several batches of this as mini loaves to include in my up-coming holiday gift baskets!

This was an amazingly tasty and moist bread. I actually made one large loaf instead of 3 mini loaves, and it baked up just perfectly, and I increased the baking time just an additional 5 minutes is all, but at the same temperature as specified in the recipe directions. We really enjoyed it, and I know I will make this bread often. Made for 2009 Fall Pick-A-Chef.
