- 3 sticks Butter
- 3 cups Sugar
- 5 whole Eggs
- 3 cups All-purpose Flour
- 1/2 teaspoon Salt
- 1 cup 7-up
- 1 Tablespoon Lemon Zest
- 1 Tablespoon Lime Zest
- 2 cups Powdered Sugar, Sifted
- 1/4 teaspoon Salt
- 1 Tablespoon Lemon Zest, Dried For At Least 30 Minutes
- 1 Tablespoon Lime Zest, Dried For At Least 30 Minutes
- 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
- 1 Tablespoon Lime Juice
- 1 Tablespoon Water + More As Needed
Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time, mixing after each addition. Combine flour and salt, then add it 1 cup at a time, mixing after each addition. With the mixer on low, slowly add the 7-Up until combined. Add 1 tablespoon of both lemon and lime zest and mix. Scrape the bowl and mix again.
Thoroughly spray a bundt pan (I used a Jubilee bundt pan) with nonstick baking spray. Add large spoonfuls of batter until the pan is filled, then even out the surface. Bake for 1 hour 10 to 1 hour 15 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and let it sit in the pan for 15 minutes. Carefully turn it out onto a cake plate and let it cool.
Combine all the glaze ingredients in a bowl and gently whisk until thick but pourable. Use a large spoon to drizzle it all over the cake. Let the glaze set, then slice and serve!
