  • Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F, lightly mist three 6-inch diameter cake pans with non-stick spray, and line them with circles cut from parchment
  • Place the flour, sugar, baking soda, and salt in a large mixing bowl, and whisk to combine. 
  • Place the sour cream, oil, egg whites, and almond extract in another bowl, and whisk to combine. 
  • Add the sour cream mixture to the flour mixture, and mix on medium speed for about 1 minute, to aerate the batter and build the cake's structure.  
  • Divide the batter equally between the 3 prepared pans, and rap each one sharply on the counter to eliminate any large air bubbles. 
  • Bake the cakes for 30 to 40 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the thickest part comes out clean.  
  • Cool completely before frosting.
