Ahhh Moose bread. For those of you not familiar with it, it's a sweet molasses quick bread, very similar to Boston brown bread. It's a real treat still hot with lots of butter on it, or even cold for a late night snack or with coffee on the go.
1 cup molasses
3 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking soda
1 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
1 cup raisins
1/4 + water
Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
Beat molasses and egg in a large bowl. Add in baking soda, sugar, and salt, mix well. Slowly add in flour and then raisins. I always find I need to add water to bring this all together, you should be able to "pour" the mixture into your baking dish, but you don't want it too loose, so add a little water at a time just until you have a nice smooth mixture.
Pour into a greased baking dish, (I used a 9x10 pyrex pie pan, but you can also use a loaf pan) and bake for 45 minutes until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
