molasses-bran-bread recipe

 I got this recipe from the back of the molasses package.  I am also
 including my variations.
 Molasses Bran Bread
 1 tsp. soda
 1/2 cup blackstrap molasses
 1 1/2 cups sour milk or buttermilk (skim)
 1 1/2 cups bran
 1/2 cup raisins
 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
 Dissolve soda in molasses, add sour milk and mix well.  Mix in bran and
 raisins.  Gradually fold in flour; turn into an 8x4x2 inch loaf pan greased
 or lined with wax paper, and spread evenly.  Bake 45 minutes in a moderate
 oven (350 deg. F)
 My variations: I substitute 3/4 cup skim milk + 3/4 cup skim yogurt for
 the buttermilk.  I substitute 1 1/2 cups oatmeal for the bran.  Last time
 I made this, I also added 2 grated carrots, and had nice carrot cake.
 I also plump the raisins in the microwave with some water.
