Are you craving comfort food?
It appears that we all are or at least we did in 2017. Judging from our Top 10 molasses recipes list, it’s the old-fashioned recipes that we’re drawn to. From brown bread to baked beans, gingerbread and muffins, old-time favourites are as popular as ever.
I’d like to give a little shout-out to my mom since half of the recipes on this top 10 list are recipes that I grew up with, all family favourites that my mom has been making since I was a child. Thanks mom :)
Top 10 Molasses Recipes of 2017
(Beginning with the most popular recipe of the year)
You can’t beat having homemade muffin batter all set to go when ever you have a craving for muffins. And this recipe is made with natural bran so the muffins stay light.
This is the recipe that I grew up with and still love best of all.
One of the easiest brown bread recipes and oh so comforting.
This is another recipe that I grew up eating. It’s from the classic Canadian cookbook, The Laura Secord Canadian Cook Book,
Mom often served this bread alongside molasses baked beans on Saturday nights in the thick of winter.
This was one of my favourite recipes when I was growing up. The texture is just the right kind of chewy.
I was one of those kids who always loved bran muffins and more so when blueberries were tossed in. This is a lighter version of a classic recipe.
Be warned, you just might eat the entire batch in one evening. (Recipe includes a delicious sauce.)
This is a extra easy recipe that you can change up using different kinds of sausages. Definitely a cut above beans & wieners.
You can enjoy ribs year round with this easy oven-baked version. (Another recipe from my childhood.)
