Personal Notes:
I got this recipe from my Mother, Elvira Lange. The first time she made it I was probably 8 years old. When she added the coffee, the mixture didn't look that good to me, and I told her I wouldn't eat it. We were going on a fishing trip and the spice cake was inside the car. I could smell the cinnamon and I couldn't resist. After I tried it I thought it was the best cake ever.
