Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray two 9-inch cake pans with baking spray. Set aside.
  2. Make cake. Sift flour into a large mixing bowl. Add SPLENDA® Granulated Sweetener, flour, baking powder, baking soda and sugar. Mix with an electric mixer on low speed until ingredients are blended. Add softened butter. Mix on low speed until butter is very finely distributed (approx. 2-3 minutes).
  3. Add egg whites. Mix on low speed until incorporated. Scrape sides of bowl. Mix on medium-high speed 1-2 minutes or until batter is light and well blended. Scrape sides of bowl. Add buttermilk and extracts. Mix on medium speed until blended.
  4. Pour cake batter into prepared pans. Bake in preheated 350 degrees F oven for 20-25 minutes or until edges of cake appear slightly dry. Allow cake to cool in pans for10-15 minutes. Remove from pans and cool on wire racks until ready to ice.
  5. Prepare Icing: Beat softened butter and SPLENDA® Granulated Sweetener briefly in a medium mixing bowl, until SPLENDA® is just incorporated. Add cream cheese. Mix until lump free, approx. 1 min. Scrape sides of bowl and add vanilla. Mix well.
  6. Assemble cake. Slice cooled cake layers in half. Using a serrated knife slice cakes in half horizontally, to create 4 cake layers.
  7. Place 1 cake layer on cake stand or plate. Spread 1/3 of the preserves over the cake layer. Top with 1/3 of the strawberries. Repeat process until all layers are assembled.*
  8. Ice cake.*Decorating Tip: Professionals create flat cake tops by using the bottom layer of a cake for the top tier. This creates a nice flat surface for icing. The remaining cake bottom can be used as the first layer of the cake and the remaining 2 cake layers can be placed in the middle (top side down).

I have made this cake as the recipe states on a couple of occasions (once for my diabetic mother's birthday and other times for family and church gathering) and it is always enjoyed by all! Many sugar conscious ladies ask for the recipe.

After seeing the first two reviews I decided to modify the recipe a bit, I added an extra egg white and an extra half cup of buttermilk, then lowered the baking temp by 25 degrees and cooked it for half an hour. The cake turned out light and fluffy, however I found that it had not enough icing and the consistency of it was too runny for proper flat icing and decorating, so I would probably make more icing with a little less butter content. While it was a good idea, I think the recipe could use a wee bit more tweaking.

I have made this recipe for my husband on his birthday several years now and he loves it. I have modified the recipe to make it better though. I added 1/2cup of buttermilk to make it more moist and fluffy and I use an entire tub of Light Cool Whip in the icing, makes it go farther and makes it lighter.

Cake turned out very tasty. The icing as written was not good. We added an entire tub of LF Cool Whip and it totally rocked the cake! 100% improvement.

I followed the others' suggestions with the egg white, more butermilk, and adding whipped topping to the frosting. My cakes did not rise at all - not sure what I did wrong, but I couldn't split them in half as the recipe called for. Still, I am sure it will be delicious if the frosting is any indicator!

This is a very heavy cake ... not light at all. The icing is great, however.

25 minutes was too long, and it needs more revision. This is not an outright winner,.
