"I would suggest to mix the butter with the dry ingredients and add the buttermilk to that without the sugar, then beat the egg whites with the sugar to create a meringue (until the mixture forms peaks) and fold that mixture in with the rest of the cake."

Followed the instructions exactly, only added a tiny bit of cream of tartar to the egg whites while beating them as I don't have an electric mixer. Difficult to say whether that affected the outcome. Regardless, the cake was completely delicious, light and flavorful. Moist for a white cake as well. I used it as the base for a whipped cream and strawberry cake, and it went over very well. Will make again whenever I need a white cake for anything.
PS. I forgot, I also added a tiny amount of lemon extract as well, to enhance the strawberry flavor.
Make sure butter is soft before starting. Good cake, dense.
This cake tastes great...I followed the original recipe and poured it into a transformer (the movie) mold and it came out great! Go autobots!!!??
