How to Make Baked Boston Brown bread

Step-by-Step

  1. adjust an oven rack to middle position and heat the oven to 350°. Grease an 8/2 by 4 1/2 inch loaf pan and set aside.
  2. Whisk the flours, sugar, and salt together in a bowl. Whisk the buttermilk, molasses, and egg together in another bowl. Gradually stir the buttermilk mixture into the flour mixture until mixed.
