It’s so easy to make your own Boston Brown Bread that you can forget about buying those canned ones on the grocery store shelves.  I used golden raisins for this recipe, but you can use any kind of raisins or dried fruit that you like best. 


1 Cup Golden Raisins

1 Cup Boiling Water

1 Cup Unbleached Flour

1 Cup Wheat Flour

1 Cup Cornmeal

1 1/2 Teaspoons Baking Soda

1 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

1/2 Cup Brown Sugar

2 Cups Buttermilk

1 Cup Molasses

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees. Place raisins in a small-size bowl and cover with boiling water.  Let sit for 20 minutes.  In a large-size bowl combine the flours, baking soda, kosher salt and brown sugar.  Mix well.  Drain raisins. In a medium-size bowl combine buttermilk and molasses.  Stir in raisins.  Add molasses mixture to flour mixture. Stir just until combined.  Pour into a parchment paper lined loaf pan.  Place into oven for 1 hour.  Remove from oven and let cool completely.  Remove from loaf pan and transfer to serving platter.  Makes 1 loaf

Note: You can also make this Boston Brown Bread into muffins.
