Molasses Brown Bread

Trying something new.  This mixes together quickly and gets its sweetness from the molasses and raisins.  My husband and I like the taste of molasses so we enjoyed the subtle sweet flavor of this bread.

1 cup flour
1 cup graham flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp salt
1 cup buttermilk
1 cup light molasses
1/2 cup golden or dark raisins
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans

Preheat oven to 350°. Spray 9X5-inch loaf pan with nonstick cooking spray. Combine flour, graham flour, whole wheat flour, baking soda and salt in large bowl. Add buttermilk and molasses; mix well. Stir in raisins and nuts.

Spoon batter into pan. Bake 50 to 55 minutes or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.

Transfer pan to wire rack; let stand 10 minutes. Turn bread out onto wire rack to cool completely. Serve at room temperature with cream cheese, if desired.
