House of Bread's Berry Bars

3 cups (12.75 ounces) flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 3/4 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
16 ounces berry jam

Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease an 11-by-7-inch baking pan.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder and salt. Set aside.

In the bowl of a stand mixer using the paddle attachment, or in a large bowl using a hand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, 3 to 5 minutes. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then the vanilla. Slowly beat in the flour mixture.

Spread three-fourths of the batter into the pan, spreading the batter a little thinner in the center of the pan. Spoon the jam on top. Spoon the remaining batter over the jam in random dollops so the jam can still be seen.

Bake the bars until golden-brown on top and firm to the touch, about 40 minutes, rotating halfway through for even baking.

Cool completely on a rack before slicing.

Serves: 9-12 person
