  5. 2 cups sugar
  6. 3 teaspoons vanilla extract

  3. In a large bowl, beat butter, sugar, and vanilla at high speed with an electric mixer until fluffy, 3 to 4 minutes, stopping occasionally to scrape sides of bowl. Gradually add egg whites, beating well after each addition.
  4. Reduce mixer speed to low. Add chocolate mixture, beating until combined.
  5. In another medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.
  6. With mixer on low speed, add flour mixture to butter mixture in thirds, alternating with buttermilk, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Beat until combined. Pour batter into prepared pan.
  7. Bake until a wooden pick inserted near center comes out clean, approximately 1 hour. Let cool in pan 10 minutes. Remove from pan, and let cool completely on a wire rack. Pour Butterscotch Glaze over cake. Store in an airtight container up to 5 days.
