Step 1: Soak poppy seed in buttermilk for twenty minutes.
Step 2: Cream butter sugar, add egg yolks, vanilla and beat well
Step 3: In separate bowl add flour, baking soda and baking powder using a whisk to mix
Step 4: Add the dry ingredients alternately with the buttermilk/poppy mix
Step 5: Beat eggs, fold in the stiffly beaten egg whites
Step 6: In a greased angel food pan (I use a bundt pan) spread batter in layers sprinkling each layer with the sugar/cocoa/cinnamon mix and swirl with a knife. (I use a little less of the sugar/cocoa/cinnamon mix)
Step 7: Bake one hour at 350 degrees or until toothpick come out clean
