     POPPYCAKE - A light, delicate cake

     I got this recipe from my mom. I'm not sure where she got

INGREDIENTS (1 bundt cake)
     1 cup     butter or margarine
     1 1/2 cups
     2 1/2 cups
               flour (sift before measuring)
     1 tsp     baking soda
     2 tsp     baking powder
     1 cup     buttermilk
     2 oz      poppy seeds (about 1/4 cup)
     1 tsp     almond extract (or vanilla extract)
     4         eggs (separated)
     1/4 cup   brown sugar
     1 tsp     cinnamon

          (1)  Soak poppyseed in the buttermilk for 15 minutes.

          (2)  Cream together butter and sugar.  Add yolks to
               creamed mixture.  Add almond extract or vanilla.

          (3)  Add dry ingredients alternately with buttermilk
               mixture, a little at a time.

          (4)  Beat egg whites very stiff as for angel food.
               Fold egg whites into mixture.

          (5)  Pour half of this batter mixture into well-greased
               Bundt pan.

          (6)  Sprinkle with a mixture of 1/4 cup brown sugar and
               1 tsp cinnamon.

          (7)  Pour in remaining batter.

          (8)  Bake at 350 deg. F for 1 hour.

          (9)  Cool and invert onto serving dish, then remove
               Bundt pan.

     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 eggwhites
     into the batter takes some skill).  Time: 30 minutes
     preparation, 1 hour cooking, 1 hour cooling.  Precision:
     Measure carefully.
