Traditionally, this bread is baked in a coffee can. Well, folks, I don't have any spare coffee cans lying around. Luckily, I found this recipe for the bread to be baked in a regular quick bread loaf pan. I've got that! This is a quick bread, so you won't have to work with any yeast. I know that is a huge perk for a few people I know. :) This is a thick bread, and it has molasses and brown sugar, so it comes out sweet. When my husband tried it, he said that it was his new favorite bread. My kids gobbled it up, too! Well, everything but the crust. It's a great side bread for a steak dinner. I actually think that Black Angus serves Boston Brown Bread at their restaraunt, and although this bread is quite different, it is similar in taste.
