Recipe Ingredients for Bread Molasses

2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup of corn meal
1/2 oz of instant yeast (2 packs)
1 teaspoon salt
2 cups hot water
1/2 cup dark molasses
5 tablespoons melted butter

Recipe Directions for Bread Molasses

  1. In a large bowl, mix together the flour, cornmeal, yeast and salt.

  2. In a smaller bowl, combine the water, molasses and butter.

  3. Add the wet ingredients to the dry and whisk for about 2 minutes.

  4. Add 2 more cups of flour, 1 cup at a time and mix thoroughly.

  5. Generously flour your kneading surface with 1/4 cup all purpose flour, and begin kneading. When the first 1/4 cup is thoroughly incorporated, add another 1/4, incorporate completely and then another 1/4 cup. (3/4 cups total)

  6. Another 1/4 cup flour and a couple more minutes kneading and it should look a little drier and smoother. Total kneading time is about 6 or 7 minutes.

  7. Oil a bowl and place the dough in it, turning a few time to coat all the surfaces and cover with a piece of plastic wrap or small towel, and place bowl in a fairly warm spot.

  8. After the dough has doubled in size, about an hour-90 minutes, turn the dough back out onto the counter [you can dust it with a bit of flour if you like, but it doesn't usually stick even without] and knead for a couple minutes until you have a nice uniform ball again. Cut it into two equal pieces.

  9. Then shape into loaves. Place the half dough on the counter with the cut side up and form into an elongated oval. Fold the side farthest from you toward yourself and press along the edges to seal. The turn it around and again pull the side farthest from you into the middle and press down. Bring the ends in until the meet in the middle. Using your fingers, kind of pinch all of the edges together and roll gently to smooth it all out. Put in a well greased bread pan and press firmly all over the top to work the dough into an even layer in the pan.

  10. Preheat oven to 350

  11. Brush the tops of the loaves with melted butter and return loaves to a warm spot and allow to rise until the dough is just above the top of the pan.

  12. Once they?ve risen again you can place them in the oven. Bake at 350 for about 45 minutes, until the top is very brown and the loaves sound hollow when you thump them.

  13. Remove from pans immediately and cool on a rack for as long as you can stand it and then cut into slices to serve.
