In 1914 February 7 was a Saturday.

I tried making Boston Brown Bread!

It’s not the usual cylinder, because I didn’t have a brown bread mold, nor any of the other traditional items for shaping – a melon mold, a one-pound baking powder can, a five-pound lard can, or even the modern coffee can. I really need to up my mold game. That’s what the bread looks like when steamed in a pudding basin.

You can see the process and a taste test in the video below.

It’s a bit different from the kind you can get in a can.
