Do you like Boston Brown Bread? I love it . . so long as it doesn’t have raisins.
For years and years (before Chad), we went down to New Orleans at least once a month. I loved eating at the Chart House, which was upstairs near Jackson Square, and that’s the first place we headed when we got to town. I loved their Boston Brown Bread. It’s been at least 28 years (before Chad) since I ate there and I still remember their Boston Brown Bread. Every time I see a recipe for it, I have to try it and so far, I’ve not come up with anything close . . or close to what I remember their bread tasting like.
The other day I came across this recipe, and had to try it. The ingredients are every day items I had in my pantry.
The changes I made to the recipe:
- Raisins were optional and I did not add them.
- I did add 1 teaspoon caraway seeds.
The little lip around the coffee can was a problem. I thought it might be but I simply opened the bottom end of the can and the bread slipped right out.
It’s the closest thing I’ve had to the Chart House brown bread and I’ll be making it again.
