Boston Brown Bread
- 2 cups whole-wheat flour
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 2 teaspoons baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2/3 cup brown sugar - (firmly packed)
- 1/4 cup unsulfured molasses
- 2 cups buttermilk
- 1 cup raisins
- 3/4 cup coarsely-chopped walnuts
Preheat oven to 350 degrees and grease and flour a loaf pan, 9 1/4 by 5 1/4 by 2 3/4 inches, knocking out excess flour.
In a large bowl whisk together dry ingredients. Stir in remaining ingredients until just combined. Pour batter into prepared pan and bake in middle of oven until a tester comes out clean, about 1 hour.
Cool bread in pan on a rack for 5 minutes. Turn loaf out onto rack and cool completely before slicing.
This recipe yields 1 loaf.
