The boston brown bread is a molasses baked brown bread recipe. Prepared with graham flour, rye and corn flour/meal, the brown bread has raisins in it. Combined along with buttermilk, this boston brown bread is delicious and soft.
  Rye flour 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Molasses 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Corn meal 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Buttermilk 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Graham 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Chopped raisins 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Baking soda 3⁄4 Teaspoon
  Salt 1 Teaspoon

Sift all dry ingredients together, add molasses, buttermilk, raisins.
Divide batter and place in 2 buttered 1 quart pudding molds or 3 buttered 1 pound coffee cans, filling them about 3/4 full.
Molds must be covered tightly, with buttered lids tied and taped so the bread won't force the cover off on rising.
Place molds in a pan filled with enough boiling water to reach halfway up the mold and steam for 3 hours, keeping water at the halfway mark.
