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.
