Boston Brown Bread I

Cooking Recipes Catalogue

This is a whole wheat bread sweetened with molasses and raisins. Buttermilk acts on the baking soda to increase its leavening power.

INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F ( 190 degrees C). Grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan.
  • In a large bowl, stir together all-purpose flour, whole wheat flour, baking soda, and salt. Mix in molasses and buttermilk. Stir in raisins or currants. Transfer batter into prepared loaf pan.
  • Bake for 1 hour, or until a tester inserted into the center of the loaf comes out clean.
