Molasses bread

molasses bread

I recently saw a recipe of outback bread. One key ingredient is molasses. This reminds me of the special taste of molasses cookies.

What is molasses? I wikied this "syrup", and was surprised to find it is full of nutrition especially Ca, Cu, Mg and Fe. So, why not substitute molasses for sugar in bread, not for carb concern but just for those elements?

Here is my recipe:
3/4 cup warm water
1 1/2 tsp active dry yeast
1 egg
1/4 cup dark molasses
2 tbsp butter
1 cup whole wheat flour
2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt

Next step, it is easy, just do as the usual steps of making bread.

The bread is very soft, not too sweet, but tasty. I like the smell of molasses.
