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):
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 cups whole wheat flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup molasses
- 1 1/2 cups buttermilk
- 2/3 cup raisins
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.
