bread with jam

Bread with jam is something I can eat at all hours of the day, which is precisely why I don't keep it on hand. When a friend gifted me a pot of homemade oregon plum jam I knew I had to make some homemade bread or biscuits. I made this basic white bread and continued the spirit of the jam and passed on the mini loafs to friends.

Basic White Bread
2 pkg dry yeast
2 c. warm water
2 T. sugar
2 t. salt
2 1/2 T. butter
5 1/8 - 6 c. flour

Dissolve yeast in water; add sugar, salt, and butter. Mix flour in a little at a time (all may not be needed). Knead 8-10 minutes. Let rise until double; punch and put in 2 loaf pans. Let rise till double (about 30 min.). Bake at 400 deg. F for 20 minutes.

note: 1 loaf = 3 mini loafs
