  • With wet hands, grab a grapefruit-sized piece of the no-knead bread dough and place it onto a generously floured counter.
  • Flour a rolling pin and roll out the dough until it's about 1/2-1 inch thick and roughly into a rectangle shape.
  • Melt the butter in a pan and brush an 8x8 inch baking pan with the melted butter.
  • Brush the dough with the melted butter until all surfaces are coated.
  • Pour any remaining butter into the bottom of the 8x8 inch pan.
  • Spread the jam all over the surface of the dough and gently roll the dough into a log, lengthwise.
  • Pinch it down at the top to seal in the jam (it's OK if some jam squeezes out).
  • Cut the log into 8 equal portions and place them into the buttered pan.
  • Let the jam rolls rise for 10 minutes.
  • Bake at 350 degrees F for about 20-25 minutes until they're just turning golden brown on top.


  • Use whatever flavor jam you have on hand!
  • Alternatively, you could make these into cinnamon rolls by replacing the jam with about 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon mixed together in a bowl, then sprinkled over the melted butter.
