Can I substitute honey for molasses?

Birmingham | Feb 12, 2011 09:04 AM

Some time ago I posted, saying that I made Boston brown bread but didn't care for the very gritty cornmeal in it. Recently found a finely ground cornmeal and made it again--perfect! Except that now I've decided I really don't like the molasses--a bit too strong for my delicate stomach.

I know it won't be Boston brown bread anymore--guess I'll call it Birmingham golden bread-- but was wondering if I could replace the molasses for honey. Would it bake up the same? (Actually, it's steamed, not baked.)

Thanks for the help!
