3/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 cup buttermilk
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 egg, lightly beaten

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Stir together flour, sugars, butter, cinnamon, and salt.  Mixture will be very crumbly.  Reserve 1/2 cup mixture.  Add baking powder and baking soda to remaining flour mixture.  Whisk together buttermilk, vanilla, and egg in another large bowl.  Stir flour mixture into buttermilk mixture just until dry ingredients are moistened.  Mixture will be slightly lumpy.  Pour batter into a buttered and floured 9″ springform pan.  Sprinkle with reserved flour mixture.  Bake at 350 degrees for 45-50 minutes or until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean.  Cool in pan on a wire rack for 15 minutes; remove sides of pan, and cool completely (about 1 hour).
