Aunt Cookie’s Brown Bread Recipe

I love brown bread – especially with baked beans. Yum – especially with raisins. B&M sells it in cans (at least in New England) – with and without raisins. My mom said she wrote down this recipe from Aunt Cookie before Aunt Cookie died. It is THE BEST brown bread recipe. I think my mom will be whipping up a batch soon! I will make sure to take photos. (I can just taste it now – warm and dripping in real butter!)

Aunt Cookie was a great cook! Her lemon meringue pie and her “Secret Chocolate Cake” were winners too!

PS – My mom made the bread on 11/18/17 – It was delicious! She also made homemade baked beans to go with it. Yummy Yummy



  1. Brown bread reminds me of family dinners at my grammy’s and with my mom and dad. It was homemade baked beans, hot dogs in natural casing (they snapped) and brown bread. Happy memories for sure.
