 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    1       c            Butter (or margarine)
    1 1/2   c            Sugar
    2 1/2   c            Flour (sift
                         -before measuring)
    1       t            Baking soda
    2       ts           Baking powder
    1       c            Buttermilk
    2       oz           Poppy seeds
                         -(about 1/4 cup)
    1       t            Almond extract
                         -(or vanilla extract)
    4                    Eggs (separated)
      1/4   c            Brown sugar
    1       t            Cinnamon
   Soak poppyseed in the buttermilk for 15 minutes.
   Cream together butter and sugar.  Add yolks to creamed
   mixture.  Add almond extract or vanilla.  Add dry
   ingredients alternately with buttermilk mixture, a
   little at a time.
   Beat egg whites very stiff as for angel food.  Fold
   egg whites into mixture. Pour half of this batter
   mixture into well-greased Bundt pan. Sprinkle with a
   mixture of about 1/4 cup brown sugar and about 1 t
   cinnamon.  Pour in remaining batter. Bake at 350
   degrees F. for 1 hour. Cool and invert onto serving
   dish, then remove Bundt pan.
   *  A light, delicate cake -- I got this recipe from my
   mom.  I'm not sure where she got it.
   *  When folding in egg whites, be gentle.  Lift and
   turn the batter instead of using a stirring motion.
   Don't worry if a little bit of egg white remains
   unmixed; the egg whites will collapse if you mix it
   too much.
   *  I have tried both vanilla and almond extracts with
   this recipe, and prefer the former.
   : Difficulty:  easy to moderate (folding the beaten
   egg whites into the batter takes some skill).
   : Time:  30 minutes preparation, 1 hour cooking, 1
   hour cooling. : Precision:  Measure carefully.
