For the Cake:

  • 1 ½  cups  unsalted butter  room temperature
  • cups  granulated sugar
  • ½  teaspoon  salt
  • large eggs room temperature
  • cups  cake flour sifted

For the Cake:

  • Start by preheating your oven to 315°F.
  • Then liberally spray a 10-cup bundt pan with non-stick baking spray.
  • In your mixer bowl, add butter and beat for 2 minutes on high speed. Slowly add in sugar and salt beat on high speed for an additional seven minutes until very pale yellow and fluffy.
  • Next, add eggs, one at a time, combining well after each addition and scraping down the sides as needed.
  • Turn your mixer down to its lowest speed, and slowly add flour into batter in two increments. Be careful not to overbeat.
  • Pour in 7 Up and lemon extract, scrape down sides and mix until just combined and turn off mixer.
  • Pour cake batter into prepared bundt pan, and bake for 1 hour and 15 -20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
  • Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then invert cake on serving plate.

For the Glaze:

  • In a small bowl, whisk together confectioner’s sugar, 7 Up, and lemon extract until it’s pourable. Spoon over the cake and allow to harden.

I like a thicker glaze so I used 1 1/2 cups of confectioners sugar.
Also, if you don't have cake flour it's really easy to make. All you have to do is put 2 tbsp of cornstarch in the bottom of a 1-cup measuring cup, then fill the cup as usual with all-purpose flour and level top. Sift the blend 4-5 times and you are good to go.
Finally I used a microplane to zest about 1 tablespoon of lemon and lime zest as decoration on the cake.
