Cin's Lemon-Orange-Cherry Buttermilk Cake.."I did it my way"

I wanted to make a Cake I could eat (had a sweet tooth acting up, need sweets).
My Hubby ate a piece wvanilla ice-cream and said ''wow, this is a good little cake''.
Then I told him it was for diabetics.....sugar-free.
He said, ''really...well it sure was good anyway''.
I forgot to take pix of this one....well, maybe next time.

"I did it my way".....Cin(/)

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 400 dF, with the rack in the middle of oven.
Spray an 8-inch round cake pan with Bakers Joy (non-stick spray with flour).
2
Whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside.
Beat butter and 2/3 cup splenda on medium-high speed until pale and fluffy, about 2-3 minutes (mine did not get completely fluffy).
Add vanilla, lemon juice, lemon zest, orange zest and egg, beat well.
3
At low speed, mix in flour mixture in three batches, alternating with the buttermilk in two batches.
Mixing until just combined (do not over-beat).
Fold in berries with a spoon (or spatula).
Pour batter into prepared cake pan, spreading and
smoothing the top.
Sprinkle top with the 1 1/2 Tablespoon of cinnamon-splenda mix.
4
Bake until cake is golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean (20 to 25 minutes).
Cool in the pan for 10 minutes on a wire rack; then cut into 8 slices.
Serve warm with sugar-free vanilla ice-cream (that's what we did).
Or completely cooled with light whipped cream.
