We love Boston Brown Bread in our family. I always bought the kind in the large can, but since finding this recipe on line I can now make it fresh! It is wonderful, moist bread. We like it with light whipped cream cheese or just butter. If you have never had this kind of bread before, I think you will like the light sweetness of it. This is great with baked beans and franks. It is dark and dense and leftovers make wonderful toast. Try it, you might like it.!

How to Make Crockpot Boston Brown Bread

Step-by-Step

  1. In a large bowl combine the whole wheat and rye flour, cornmeal, baking soda and salt. Make a well in the center and pour in the molasses, buttermilk and raisins. Stir until all the ingredients are combined.
  2. Grease a 2 quart mold, flour it and fill. The batter should not fill more than 2/3 of the mold. Cover with foil and tie with kitchen string. Set the mold on a trivit in the bottom of a 5-6 quart slow cooker. Pour the hot water into the pot. Cover pot and cook on High for 3-4 hours.
  3. The bread is done when the top is dry and recedes from the edge of mold. Cool the bread on a rack for 10 minutes, then turn out and serve. Enjoy!
