DIRECTIONS

  • You will need 2 empty cans such as the ones in which fruit or tomato sauce come. Or you can use a mold.
  • To prepare them, grease and flour generously.
  • Combine dry ingredients in a medium bowl.
  • Add buttermilk and molasses while mixing on low.
  • Stir in raisins and mix only enough to distribute.
  • Pour into prepared cans or mold. (Should be about 2/3 full).
  • Cover with foil and secure with string.
  • Place cans on a wire rack in the bottom of a large pot.
  • Pour boiling water into the pot to reach about half way up the cans but not enough to float them.
  • Put lid on pot and steam for 3 hours, checking water occasionally to make sure there is enough.
  • To remove breads from cans, the bottoms of the cans can be "opened" with a can opener and the breads can then be pushed out. They come out more easily when the bread is still warm.
