Expert Tips

Created in Colonial times and also called Boston Brown Bread, this authentic dark bread is made with cornmeal and molasses. Originally, it called for rye meal, which was available at the time. If you really like rye, use 1/2 cup of rye flour and 1/2 cup of whole wheat flour (in addition to the all-purpose flour).
