Crockpot Boston Brown Bread

Ingredients:

  • 2 cups rye meal
  • 2 cups corn meal
  • 2 cups whole-wheat flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/3 cups dark molasses
  • 4 cups milk
  • 2 cups seedless raisins
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • hot water
  • aluminum foil
  • butcher’s kitchen twine, and one 16 oz. coffee can, empty and clean

Instructions:

  1. Preheat oven to 375 F.
  2. Grease a 16 oz coffee can (or 1 qt pudding mold or baking dish) with butter.
  3. In a large bowl, combine both wheat and rye flours, cornmeal, baking soda and salt.
  4. Stir in molasses and milk; add raisins and mix to blend.
  5. Fill coffee can (or mold/baking dish) with batter; it should come up to about 2/3 of the way to the
    top.
  6. Cover top of the can with foil and tie with butcher’s twine to make it airtight.
  7. Place can (or mold/baking dish) into a larger, deep baking dish.
  8. Using a pitcher, carefully pour hot water into the baking dish so that the water comes about
    halfway up the outside of the coffee can (or mold/baking dish); place in the oven.
  9. Allow bread to steam for 2 hours, check water level after 1 hour and add more water if needed.
  10. To check if the bread is done, carefully remove twine and foil and stick a wooden skewer into the
    middle and pull it out.
  11. If the Skewer is clean, the bread is done; if the bread needs additional cooking time, cover with
    new foil and twine and allow to steam until done.
  12. Enjoy!
