I saw this on Chopped last night. I guess it’s popular in the New England area.
It looked delicious – like pumpkin bread in a can. It came out with ridges like cranberry sauce at Thanksgiving!
Has anyone had it? What does it taste like?

It’s sort of sweet and molassas-like. It’s great with baked beans and hotdogs.

Yeah I’ve had this. I’ve made this. It’s delicious! I prefer to make it in a regular old bread pan tho. It’s similar to the Eatn’ Park brown bread, if you ever get a chance to eat it (I dunno how far Eatn’ Park restaurants go in the USA). Sweet, molassy, dense. So good.
Here’s a more authentic recipe that the one I use (non-dairy, for my husband. This one’s probably a lot better!)
Boston Brown Bread (from My Mom’s Best Recipes Cookbook)
1/2 C molasses
1/2 C sugar
2 1/2 t baking soda stirred into
2 C buttermilk
1 t salt
2 1/2 C wheat flour
1/2 C all-purpose baking flour
1 t baking powder
1 C raisins plumped
Combine ingredients. Stir. Grease and flour 5 15 oz cans. Fill about half full with batter. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 minutes with a cookie sheet covering cans. Uncover. Bake for another 10 minutes. Once done baking, remove from oven and then remove bread from cans when still hot. Use a knife around the edges to gently pry out.
