DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375 F.
  • Grease a 16 oz coffee can (or 1 qt pudding mold or baking dish) with butter.
  • In a large bowl, combine both wheat and rye flours, cornmeal, baking soda and salt.
  • Stir in molasses and milk; add raisins and mix to blend.
  • Fill coffee can (or mold/baking dish) with batter; it should come up to about 2/3 of the way to the top.
  • Cover top of the can with foil and tie with butcher's twine to make it airtight.
  • Place can (or mold/baking dish) into a larger, deep baking dish.
  • Using a pitcher, carefully pour hot water into the baking dish so that the water comes about halfway up the outside of the coffee can (or mold/baking dish); place in the oven.
  • Allow bread to steam for 2 hours, check water level after 1 hour and add more water if needed.
  • To check if the bread is done, carefully remove twine and foil and stick a wooden skewer into the middle and pull it out.
  • If the Skewer is clean, the bread is done; if the bread needs additional cooking time, cover with new foil and twine and allow to steam until done.
  • Enjoy!
