Step by Step Method

Step 1

Heat oven to 350°E Lightly coat an 8-inch springform pan with cooking spray.

Step 2

Whisk together flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl; form a well in the center.

Step 3

Beat egg whites with an electric mixer at high speed in a medium bowl until stiff peaks form, about 3 minutes.

Step 4

Beat egg yolks, sugar substitute, buttermilk, oil, lemon extract, and lemon zest in a medium bowl at medium speed until smooth, about 1 minute.

Step 5

Pour egg yolk mixture into the center of the dry ingredients; stir gently until just combined. Gently fold in half of the egg whites, then fold in the remaining egg whites.

Step 6

Pour batter into pan and bake until edges are lightly browned and a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, 25 to 28 minutes. Let cool in the pan for 5 minutes; remove from the pan and transfer to a wire rack. Cut into wedges and serve warm or at room temperature.
