Coffee Cake

Recipe for coffee cake (I think). Some of the writing has faded a bit and is tough to make out:

6 cups flour
1 cup butter
1 cup of coffee prepared as from the label
1 cup molasses
1 cup of sugar
1 cup of raisins
1 teaspoon soda
Spice with cloves and cinnamon

Found in the 1886 edition of "The Centaur Almanac and Cook Book."

Here are a few more scans of that old almanac:
