Coffee Cake.–One cup of sugar, one do each of molasses, coffee and butter, one egg, one teaspoonful each of soda and cream tartar, one teaspoonful each kind of spice. Fruit to the taste. Don’t mix too hard–not as hard as fruit cake.–When it rises even in the dish, and bakes so it is right, it makes a splendid fruit cake, and better by standing.
