The Best Boston Brown Bread with Jam

Sharing is caring!

Of the many brown bread recipes I’ve made, this one reigns supreme! Deliciously moist Boston brown bread is topped with whipped cream cheese and raspberry jam. It is truly incredible!

This the the Brown Bread recipe of my dreams. Moist, fairly dense and full of that wonderful molasses flavor. The garnishes of whipped cream cheese (or regular) with raspberry jam take this to the next level. I can’t recommend this recipe enough if you are a brown bread fan.

An alternative way to serve it is to toast it and top it with butter. Incredible.

Servings 12 slices, a 9×5-inch loaf
Calories 198 kcal

Equipment

  • 9″x5″ Loaf Pan

Ingredients
  

  • 2 cups whole wheat flour** see notes for using all purpose flour instead
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup molasses
  • 2 cups buttermilk

Garnish

  • 1 Tablespoon whipped cream cheese
  • 1 Tablespoon raspberry jam

Instructions
 

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease and flour a 9×5 inch loaf pan, knocking out excess flour. I used a silicone pan instead which doesn't require greasing and flouring.
  • In a large bowl, whisk together whole wheat flour, all-purpose flour, baking soda, and brown sugar. Mix in molasses and buttermilk until just combined. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  • Bake for one hour, or until done. Cool on a wire rack for 5 minutes then remove from pan. Cool completely before slicing.

Notes

In a pinch I have used all purpose flour instead of the whole wheat and all purpose combination. It still turned out delicious!
