1Butter and flour a 12 cup Bundt pan. I use Bakers Secret spray and it works great.
2Using electric mixer, beat butter and cream cheese in a large bowl until fluffy, about 4 minutes.
3Add sugar and salt. Beat 10 minutes, occasionally scraping down sides of the bowl.
4Add eggs one at a time. Beat 2 minutes after each egg. This really makes a difference in the finished cake.
5Beat in vanilla.
6Beat in flour at low speed until batter is smooth. Do not overbeat. I beat until flour is just incorporated, then finish it by hand.
7Transfer batter to pan. Put pan in a COLD oven.
Bake at 200 degrees F for 20 minutes.
Increase temp to 250 F; bake 20 minutes.
Increase temp to 275 F; bake 10 minutes.
Increase temp to 300 F; bake about 60 min longer, until cake tester inserted near center comes out clean.
8Cool in pan for 15 minutes. Turn cake onto rack and cool completely. Wrap and store at room temperature. Cake can be made three days ahead.
