Recipe by katie in the UP
This is typically 'steamed' but found this recipe in GooseBerry Patch Comfort and Joy cookbook, baked. *UPDATE* I doubled the recipe and used small (gift size) foil pans...I made 10 and baked for 30 minutes. This is very very similar to the Boston Brown Bread we use to buy in the cans!

- 1 cup whole wheat flour
