This recipe is said to have originated with the Micmac Indians, a Native American tribe indigenous to northeastern New England and Canada’s Atlantic provinces.


  • 1 cup molasses
  • 1 egg
  • 3 cups flour
  • 1½ tsp. baking soda
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 cup brown raisins

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Beat molasses and egg in a large bowl. In a separate bowl, combine flour, baking soda, sugar and salt. Add flour mixture to egg-molasses mixture, and mix well. Fold in raisins. Pour into greased 9-inch square baking dish and bake 45 minutes, until bread springs back when touched lightly in the middle.

Serves 9.

I have been making this bread for about two years now and love it! I always add some nutmeg, cinnamon and alspice as well as a splash of oil.
I have done some variations as well:
Sorghum instead of molassas
apples and unsweetened coconut instead of raisins
pumpkin pieces (about 1/2 cup)
cooked sweet Potato
I have even tried this using beef boullion instead of salt for a side at dinner.

Simple enough, something I should try on one of my Boy Scout camping trip. A bit tricky doing it in a dutch oven though. Might also have to try using a portable oven.
