For the Cake you will need:

4 sticks unsalted butter (softened)

5 eggs (room temp)

3 cups cake flour (or regular flour)

2 tablespoons lemon extract

2 1/2 cups sugar

3/4 cups 7 up

Pinch of salt

For the Glaze you will need:

1 cup powdered sugar

1 to 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease and flour a bundt pan. Bake for an 1 hour and 10 minutes.

Cake- Beat butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Gradually add one egg at a time until smooth then mix in salt and lemon extract. Next, add flour alternating with 7-up and let batter mix completely before pouring into floured pan.

Check cake with a cake tester or bamboo skewer. If tester/skewer comes out clean then the cake is done. Let cool for 15 to 20 minutes before plating.

Lemon Glaze Icing- In a small bowl, combine powdered sugar and lemon juice. Whisk together until you get a nice smooth consistency. Drizzle icing over cake and serve.

*NOTE: The lemon glaze icing can be prepared ahead of time and stored in a covered container. Gently the stir the glaze to get it back to a workable state.
