    I enjoy it when older recipes are reposted. Thank you G.R!
    I was also intrigued by the recipe because I enjoy old fashioned recipes and so made this cake this morning. I followed directions . The only change was to decrease the salt for my taste. I used a wooden spoon to mix the softened butter and sugar by hand ( this took the longest time of the recipe to get creamy- note not fluffy ). Then I used about 2 cups of flour to make a stiff batter. In my modern oven it took about 25 minutes to test done.
    The cake has a very moist texture. Tastes best when cooled to room temperature in my opinion. I also cut out a piece after 10 minutes of cooling and poured some hot coffee over the top.
    Now this became a dessert with a pudding texture softened by the coffee. Hubby and I thought whipped cream topping would even take this dessert up a notch.
    When cold, I enjoyed the faint taste of ginger in the recipe.
    Bottom line, it's a lovely recipe ,simplicity at it's best.

    Also pouring on the hot coffee is quite a unique addition. The recipe soaked up the coffee like a sponge creating the pudding texture.
    So, high 5 for sharing this tasty and intriguing recipe!

    " It was not good "

    Interesting..... I tried this and thought that the picture and the ingredients looked OK, however I was SADLY MISTAKEN. I am not even sure the directions are correct, or specific enough. The directions read like the sugar and butter and egg are to be used for the topping, but after tasting this, I believe they must be included in the recipe. Then add extra sugar and cinnamon for the topping. In any case, there was only enough batter to do one thick layer. The dough was very salty, and I thought that maybe the coffee would cut it down, but even that did not work.
    Please revise your instructions. Maybe tell us about how much flour you are using, and even more important. Stress something to the effect of NOT using self-rising flour, or use it and do not add the salt, baking powder or baking soda.
