Molasses Brown Bread
Slightly sweet, this bread is a delicious accompaniment to any meal or makes great toast for breakfast. Served warm, with plenty of butter, it's sure to be a hit!
- Add yeast & brown sugar to warm water in large mixing bowl & let sit for 10 minutes
- Using dough hook with electric mixer, add remaining ingredients & flour gradually & mix well. If dough is too sticky to handle, add a little additional flour until dough is smooth.
- Let rise in warm place (proof setting in oven if available) until doubled, about 1.5 hours. If you touch with finger & indentation remains, it's doubled.
- Form into loaf shape & place in buttered bread pan.
- Let rise again until doubled, about an hour.
- Bake on middle rack of oven, preheated to 350°, for approximately 30 minutes. Bread should be golden brown & internal temperature 200° on food thermometer. If you don't have a thermometer, gently slide bread out of pan & tap the bottom. It will sound hollow when the bread is done.
- Remove from pan & cool on wire rack.

You can substitute whatever flour you like, but you may need to alter the amount based on what type you choose. I will never tell you to wait until it cools to slice it, because who wants to wait!! Those warm slices may be a bit squishy looking, but who cares? This is fresh bread, right out of the oven, so enjoy it! After about 3 days, if there is any left, you may want to slice it, double wrap & place in freezer. It will start to dry out. But most likely, it won't last that long! Enjoy!! -Connie
