Directions:
Mix dry ingredients (except Baking Soda) together in a large bowl. Set aside. In another bowl mix Baking Soda with Boiling Water and stir until dissolved. Add Milk and Molasses. Pour wet ingredients into dry ones and stir to form a soft batter.
Pour into greased mold or large coffee can and cover with a tight lid or aluminum foil tied with string. Either way, it should be 2/3 full.
Place in a pot of boiling water and boil for 5 hours checking water occasionally to make sure it doesn't boil dry.

Note: This may not take 5 hours as Mrs. Lewis wrote it. Many modern recipes I have seen take 2 hours. It should be done when a toothpick inserted into it comes out clean.

Cool and remove from can or mold and serve.
