I grew up in Nova Scotia, Canada and my grandmother used to make what she called "brown" bread she used to make it every time she would make homemade baked beans. She is no longer with us and I'm trying to track down this little bit of my childhood. Any suggestions on a "brown" bread, I believe it was made with molasses and it was quite moist and filling.
