Molasses Dough Cake

Melt half a tea-cup of butter, mix it with a tea-cup of molasses, the

juice and chopped rind of a fresh lemon, a tea-spoonful of

cinnamon--work the whole with the hand into three tea-cups of raised

dough, together with a couple of beaten eggs. Work it with the hand for

ten or twelve minutes, then put it into buttered pans. Let it remain ten

or fifteen minutes before baking it.
