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.
