Directions:
Mix the sugar, molasses, and beaten egg. Add melted butter, coffee and soda, sifted flour and spices. Pour in a deep 9 inch pie pan lined with rich pastry. Dot with crumbs made by mixing 2/3 c flour, 1/2 c brown sugar, and 1/4 c butter.

Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes or until filling is set. Do not overbake. When properly prepared and baked this recipe will have a sticky molasses layer at the bottom. If you like a cake-like texture all the way through, use 1 c of flour instead of 3/4 c .
