Weixenkeimbrot (Molasses Brown Bread)
2 1/2 c Whole-wheat flour
1 1/2 c Wheat germ
1/3 c Brown sugar
1/2 ts Salt
1 c Raisins; mixed dark & light
2 ts Baking soda
1 7/8 c Buttermilk
1/3 c Molasses
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease a 9 X 5 X 3-inch pan. Combine flour, wheat germ, brown sugar, salt and raisins in a mixing bowl. Mix well. In a second mixing bowl, mix baking soda, buttermilk and molasses, using a wooden spoon. This misture will start to bubble. Immediately mix it into the dry ingredients. Spoon the batter into the greased pan. Bake at once. The bread is done when a toothpick comes out clean, about 1 hour.
Turn out of the pan and cool on a wire rack. Makes 1 loaf.
