Hearty and dense, my homemade Boston Brown Bread features hazelnuts for a delightfully nutty taste. Thick slices pair well with just about anything, from soup and stews to pasta and meat entrees. —Lorraine Caland, Shuniah, Ontario

Ingredients

  • 3 cups whole wheat flour
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2-1/2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2-1/2 cups buttermilk
  • 1 cup molasses
  • 1 cup golden raisins
  • 3/4 cup chopped hazelnuts

Directions

In a large bowl, combine the flours, baking soda and salt. In a small bowl, whisk buttermilk and molasses. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Fold in raisins and nuts. Transfer to two greased 8x4-in. loaf pans.
Bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks. Yield: 2 loaves (12 slices each).
Editor's Note: To toast nuts, bake in a shallow pan in a 350° oven for 5-10 minutes or cook in a skillet over low heat until lightly browned, stirring occasionally.
