Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter and flour in a 10 inch cake pan. In a large bowl, combineeggs, melted butter, sugar and orange zest. In another bowl, cobine coffee and molasses. In another bowl, sift together flour, baking soda, spices and salt. Alternately add the coffee-molasses mixture and the dry ingredients to the egg-sugar mixture.

It is really good!  It should be with all that butter in it! My sister Debbie made it when she came down last week!
