I tried this bread for a Photo Swap game and have discovered a "hidden treasure" recipe! This bread is different from any I've tried before. The closest I can think of is a steamed Boston Brown Bread. Chewier than most quick breads but not quite the texture of a yeast bread. It has a rich flavor, because of the molasses & buttermilk, but since there aren't any spices it isn't as strong as a gingerbread or pumpkin bread. I've tried it plain and toasted with butter and really enjoyed it both ways. I also think cream cheese would compliment it well. I prepared the recipe as directed, except for omitting the raisins due to personal preferences. This is a bread I know I will be making again for us and to give as gifts. Thanks so much Derf!!
