Sift cake flour 3 times with baking soda and salt. Add boiling water slowly to the cocoa to make a smooth paste; cool. Cream butter and sugar. Add egg yolks, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add cocoa mixture. Add dry ingredients alternately with mixture of buttermilk and vanilla, beating well each time. Beat egg whites until they are stiff but not dry and fold into cake mixture. Grease two 9-inch layer pans and line the bottoms with waxed paper.
