FOR THE CAKE:
1 1/2 cups unsalted butter, softened
3 cups granulated sugar
1 tsp kosher salt
5 large eggs
3 cups cake flour
1/2 cup lemon lime 7 Up
Preheat oven to 315 F. (yes, it's a lower temperature than normal). Prepare a large bundt cake, or tube pan with nonstick baking spray, set aside.
In a large mixing bowl, attached to a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, beat the butter for 2 minutes on high until pale in color. Add in sugar and salt and cream together for an additional 5-7 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl a couple times. Mixture will be very pale yellow and fluffy.
Add in the eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Slowly add in flour, being careful not to over beat (turn the mixer down to low at this time). Pour in 7 Up and mix just until combined.
Pour batter into prepared pan and bake for 75-85 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool in pan for about 10 minutes, then invert on serving plate. Cool completely. ENJOY!
