BH&G Steamed Brown Bread

One of the best food memories from my grandmother’s Better Homes & Gardens New Cookbook.

Difficulty: Easy

Servings: 1-8

Prep Time: 15 min   Cook Time: 3 hrs 5 min  


1 cup sifted all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup corn meal
1 cup stirred graham or whole wheat flour
3/4 cup dark molasses
2 cups buttermilk or sour milk
1 cup seedless raisins


Sift white flour with baking powder, soda, and salt; add corn meal and graham flour. Add remaining ingredients; beat well. Half-fill three greased 1-pound baking powder cans; cover tightly; steam 3 hours on rack in covered pan, using small amount of boiling water. Uncover cans; place in very hot oven (450 degrees) 5 minutes; remove bread from cans.
