"Put half the above mixture in a small shallow baking tin, and to the remainder add one teaspoonful molasses, one-half cup raisins (chopped) or currants, one-half teaspoonful cinnamon, cloves, allspice, and a little nutmeg, and one tablespoonful flour. Bake this in the same kind of baking tin.
"Put cake sheets together while warm, with jelly between."
