    Molly53's Note:

    Boston baked beans and brown bread is the traditional New England Saturday-night supper. If you like raisins in your Boston brown bread, add one cup of raisins or sultanas dredged with a little flour. This delicious recipe comes from the New England chapter of the United States Regional Cookbook, Culinary Arts Institute of Chicago, 1947. Steaming time approximate.

      This was delicious and so easy. The only problem was that there was no way the batter could fit in a 1-lb. coffee can, so next time I'll reduce everything by 1/3 (fortunately, I have a 1/3 teaspoon measuring spoon). I used stone-ground graham flour and yellow corn meal from Kenyon's in Rhode Island and I used 1/2 cup light/1/4 cup dark molasses. I let it simmer the entire 2 hours (I might go a bit less next time) and it popped right out of the can with no trouble whatsoever. For what it's worth, I covered it with the can's lid and didn't bother baking it afterwards.
