Breadmaker Brown Bread (Molasses Bread)

Breadmaker Brown Bread (Molasses Bread) - I Say Nomato Nightshade Free Food Blog
Maritimers have a special relationship with molasses. Maybe it’s the cold, the ocean-tossed, barren rocks that means we need that little extra sweetness in our life, but Maritimers grow up slathering molasses on everything.
