- 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature, plus more for greasing

Preheat oven to 350 F. Meanwhile, grease a 6-cup loaf pan with butter.
In an electric mixer set on high speed, mix butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Slowly add the eggs, and beat well. Add the vanilla extract, and salt.
Then, lower speed to low. Add the flour gradually, until flour is just combined to the mixture. Pour over the loaf pan.
