"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." — Jenykell

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.
