1. Combine all ingredients, except milk, molasses, and lemon juice, in bowl. Add combined milk,
molasses, and lemon juice, mixing well; spoon mixture into two greased and floured 16-ounce cans. Cover tops of cans with greased aluminum foil, securing with rubber bands.

2. Stand cans in crockpot; add enough boiling water to come halfway up sides of cans, making sure foil does not touch water. Cover and cook on high 2 hours; turn heat to low and cook until wooden skewer inserted in breads comes out clean, about 4 hours. Uncover cans and stand on wire
rack to cool 10 minutes. Loosen sides of bread by gently rolling cans on counter, or remove bottoms of cans and push breads through.
