      3/4   c            Milk

   Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x5x3-inch loaf
   pan. Combine the flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt
   in a large mixing bowl. Stir with a fork to mix all
   dry ingredients well. Cut the butter into small pieces
   and drop into the flour mixture. Using your fingers or
   a pastry cutter, rub or cut the cold butter into the
   flour until mixture resembles coarse bread crumbs.
   Beat the eggs well in a small bowl, add the jam or
   preserves and milk; whisk until the mixture is blended
   smooth. Stir the egg mixture into the flour mixture
   and stir only until no flour streaks show--the mixture
   wil be lumpy. Spoon into the loaf pan and bake for
   about 1 hour 15 minutes, or until a straw inserted
   into the center comes out clean. Allow loaf to remain
   in the pan for 15 to 20 minutes before turning it out
   onto a rack. Meanwhile, make the glaze by combining
   the butter, sugar, and jam in a pan. Stir and bring to
   a simmer; continue stirring until dissolved and
   blended. Strain and then spoon the glaze over the loaf
   after it has cooled on the rack.
