DIRECTIONS

  • Thoroughly grease and flour a 12-cup Bundt or tube pan, then shake out excess flour. Heat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about three minutes in a stand mixer or more with a handheld mixer. Scrape down sides of the bowl once or twice. Add eggs one at a time, beating well about 30 seconds after each egg. In between additions of egg, scrape down sides of bowl to ensure thorough mixing of ingredients.
  • Fold in cake flour. Add vanilla and salt. Pour mixture into prepared pan and bake 35 to 40 minutes, or just until a wooden toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  • Cool the cake in the pan for about 10 minutes. Run a table knife around the edges to loosen them as needed. Then turn the cake out on a rack to cool completely.
