White House Molasses Cup Cakes (1887)

"One cupful of butter, one of sugar, six eggs, five cupfuls of sifted flour, one tablespoonful of cinnamon, two tablespoonfuls of ginger, three teacupfuls of cooking molasses, and one heaping teaspoonful of soda.

"Stir the butter and sugar to a cream. Beat the eggs very light, the yolks and whites separately, and add to it.  Put in the spices, then the molasses and flour in rotation, stirring the mixture all the time. 

"Beat the whole well before adding the soda, and beat a little afterwards. Put into well-buttered patty-pan tins, and bake in a very moderate oven. A baker's recipe."
