Black Coffee Cake

This recipe is from the 1980 copy of the Grace Evangelical Congregational Church cookbook from Muir, Pennsylvania. My Nana saved a copy of the cookbook and gave it to be when I became an adult. The cookbook has seen better days and I thought it would be good to post some of the recipes and keep them alive after the book has fallen apart. Also, I think it is a nice snap shot of the type of recipes these women (largely of Pennsylvania Dutch ancestry) of rural Pennsylvania where making in 1980. The cookbook says this was the recipe submitted by the then Minister of the church, Pastor Harold Smith. My Nana has handwritten next to the recipe "This is almost black and VERY good!'
