"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

Ingredients:  
1/4 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. sugar
1 c. flour, sifted
2 t. baking powder
1/4 t. salt
1/2 c. milk
approximately 1 cup fruit (drained fruit from a #2 can is fine, or berries)
1 c. fruit juice (syrup from can, or your choice)
additional 1/4 to 1/2 c. sugar (depending on sweetness of fruit and your taste)

Directions:
Directions:
Cream first 1/2 c. sugar with butter, until light and fluffy. Sift together dry ingredients and to sugar/butter mixture alternately with the milk. Beat until smooth. Pour into greased pan (10x5x3 loaf or 2 quart casserole). Spoon the fruit over the batter. Sprinkle with the additional sugar. Pour fruit juice over top. Bake 45-50 minutes at 325, until top springs back when lightly touched. Makes 6 servings.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Super easy. Kids love (and so do I) that the fruit and juice goes to the bottom, and a light cake-like layer forms on top. Excellent with canned peaches or fruit cocktail (spring for the kind with extra cherries). Even better served with whipped cream or ice cream.
