Boston Brown Bread with Golden Raisins

Last post from all my baking last week! Woot! (Or maybe this is a sad thing?) Either way, this post is actually a repeat, sort of. I've made Boston Brown Bread before. But I've always wondered what it would taste like with golden raisins.
My friend was a huge fan of these the last time I made them and recently he begged me to make some more. So then I had a reason to try it with golden raisins.
It was good, but I think I like the normal raisin version better. However, my friend loved the golden raisins. To each their own.
(Wrap them up for a cute looking baked-goods gift.)
Boston Brown Bread (from My Mom's Best Recipes Cookbook)
1/2 C molasses
1/2 C sugar
2 1/2 t baking soda stirred into
2 C buttermilk
1 t salt
1 egg
2 1/2 C wheat flour
1/2 C all-purpose baking flour
1 t baking powder
1 C golden raisins plumped

Combine ingredients. Stir. Grease and flour 5 15 oz cans. Fill about half full with batter. Put cans on a baking sheet or a large pan and bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes with a cookie sheet covering cans. Uncover. Bake for another 10 minutes. Once done baking, remove from oven and then remove bread from cans when still hot. Use a knife around the edges to gently pry out.

Erika's Extra: BBB is best served warm and with butter on top and makes an especially good treat for breakfast. Mmmm!
Bake well and prosper!


  1. Hi Erika,

    I remember you baking this bread before. This recipe must be very good and that's why you are baking it again. Your friends must be happy receiving this great gift from you.


  2. Hi Erika, excellent bread, look so delicious and the texture look so good, soft and moist.
