Boston Brown Bread

1 cup white flour 1 cup corn meal 1 cup graham flour 1 teaspoon salt.

1 3/4 cups sweet milk.

3/4 cup molasses.

1 teaspoon soda.

20 minims hydrochloric acid (CP).

Mix dry ingredients. To half of dry ingredients add soda and to the other half add molasses and milk, then the hydrochloric acid. Mix thoroughly. Add remaining dry ingredients and put to steam in cans for three and one-half hours. Dry in oven for a few minutes before serving.

If baking powder is used omit the hydrochloric acid and one-fourth teaspoon of soda and substitute one teaspoon of baking powder. It will still be necessary to use three-fourths teaspoon of soda to neutralize the acid of the molasses.
