CAKES AND COOKIES
Take 1 cup of light-brown sugar, 1 cup of molasses, 1 cup of cold coffee, 1 cup of shortening (lard and butter), a big teaspoonful of soda, 1 level teaspoonful of cinnamon and 1 of ground cloves, and 1 cup of chopped raisins Dissolve the soda in the coffee. Put all together before stirring. Add enough flour to make stiff. Bake.
This cake should be made several days before using. We prefer it made a week before eating. Keep it well wrapped to prevent drying out.
