“This is a Newfie recipe for Molasses Bread that has been handed down to me.” - by sir charles
Original recipe yields 2 loaves
- Place raisins into a heatproof bowl and pour in enough boiling water to cover. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap, or a plate to seal; allow to stand overnight.
- Dissolve sugar in the lukewarm water in a small bowl. Sprinkle yeast over the water and allow to soften and bubble, about 10 to 15 minutes. Meanwhile, heat the milk, butter, and salt in a saucepan over medium heat until the butter melts. Remove from the heat and allow to cool until lukewarm (105 to 110 degrees F).
- Once the milk has cooled, drain the raisins, and add them to the milk. Stir in the yeast mixture and molasses. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, cinnamon, mace, and clove. Stir half of the flour into the milk mixture with a wooden spoon and beat for 2 to 3 minutes. Add remaining flour and stir until a moist dough is formed.
- Place dough on a flat surface and knead until dough becomes smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes, adding more flour as necessary to keep dough from sticking. Place into a large, oiled bowl; cover, and allow to rise in a warm, draft-free area until doubled in bulk, 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
- Lightly oil or grease two loaf pans and set aside. Divide dough in half and shape into 2 loaves, place into prepared pans, cover, and allow to rise until doubled in bulk, 1 to 2 hours.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
- Bake loaves in preheated oven 1 hour, or until they are nicely browned and sound hollow when tapped on the bottom.

"This is the perfect cinnamon raisin bread, if you don't like the swirl kind. It makes great toast too. My changes are as follows: I only used 2 cups of raisins and that was plenty, I soaked the raisin..." See mores for 2 hours not overnight, and I ran out of molasses so I used half honey which again was delicious but I will stick with molasses next time and see if there is a difference. It turned out fantastic. It made 3 medium size loaves for me and I only baked them for 30 min. at 350 F. "
"This is the first time I have received a notice that I had a review on my recipe. So what a surprise to see all these. I am so glad you have all enjoyed it! It is my favourite bread to make and LOL! ..." See moreto eat. Mom2girls: I have to say that I only use cinnamon. I just increase it. I have found a cinnamon honey spread that is to die for (intense) and next time I make the bread I think I am going to mix it in, replacing the cinnamon. pomplemousse: Thank you so much for posting the picture. Your bread looks great! pomplemousse: I also use boiling water. I also soak the raisins overnight."
