Review of B&M canned brown raisin bread

Sunday mornings on weekends when Landlady is here we usually get together for coffee. This morning we agreed to try some of that canned bread Big Brother sent.

There’s not a lot to say about it except that it’s really quite tasty. It has a moist texture and a fairly open crumb that takes butter well. Toasts right up nicely – It’s canned bread, you know, I probably wouldn’t serve it to the Queen but also certainly wouldn’t call it last-ditch survival rations. I like it. Don’t know what it costs but if possible I’m going to call it a permanent addition to the pantry.

    Joel I had heard about it on another forum about 10 years ago and ordered it on Amazon of all places and got the non raisin version. Having Amazon prime I got a case of the cans in 2 days. It is tasty sliced and fried in butter. Ordered another case and then over life moved on they were shuffled to the very back of the preps. I came across them this year. Still were good. No problems with the cans.

    I love that stuff,especially toasted !! Great storage life too.

    Heh… known as “brown bread” in these parts (New England), it has long been a staple for Saturday night suppers along with the hot dogs & beans. A real treat if spread with cream cheese

    I grew up on the stuff.

    This looks interesting, I may have to get, and try some. A case or two would sit well in the emergency storage.

    And they also make the date-nut combination which is awesome toasted or not and spread with cream cheese. The brown bread/baked beans/hot dogs combination with pickles on the side is still one of my favorites. Making up a batch of brown bread batter and then baking it in cans is fun but takes lots more time than opening a can of ready to eat.

    Sounds like good stuff to have around. It’s at Amazon, 12 cans to a case for just under $35. (That’s so I had to order another little thing to get the “over $35 free shipping”).

    P.S. – Thanks for all the good reads.

    It’s substantially less at

  9. Jim Price says:

    If you’re a Prime member, it’s $23 and change from Amazon, delivered.

    Thanks for the tip, Jim Price. I’m reluctantly giving up my Prime membership in September, now that they’ve raised the price. But that’s a good deal. So ordered while I still can.

    Odd, those prices. $35 for a 12-pack, so same as Amazon non-Prime. But less than $2 when purchased as individual cans. (I think that’s store pick-up, though.)

  11. Jim Price says:

    Even at the new, higher price I consider Prime a bargain. I place over 200 orders per year at Amazon, and it saves me a pile of money. Where I live is not as remote as Joel, but definitely out in the boonies. No mail service here, but UPS and FedEx both make their way out here regularly. Amazon keeps me alive and solvent.

    I used to get something comparable called “hobo bread” at a detroit area market, it had nuts and raisins in it. It wasnt in a can though it was a solid cylinder like it had been cooked in a can. I’m going to mosey over to walmarts after pt today ( i dont live near detroit anymore) to see if its carried in store here.

  13. Joel says:

    That looks delicious and easy. I may get some raisins and try that at the next neighborhood party.

    HAHA! Joel, I just posted a comment on your previous blog post in which you make passing mention of B&M bread. Yup, it was THIS post that I was thinking of but couldn’t remember the source.

To the stake with the heretic!
