seven-up cake

I had never heard of this cake before making it for a recent birthday celebration at work. It turned out to be delicious, so I thought I'd pass on the recipe. Seven-up cake is similar to a lemon pound cake, but gets increasingly moist towards the center.


Seven-Up Cake

3/4 lb butter, softened
3 cups sugar
5 eggs
3 cups flour
2 tablespoons lemon extract
3/4 cup 7-Up soda

Lemon glaze:
2/3 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon lemon juice
  1. Cream butter and sugar
  2. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating after each addition.
  3. Add flour and lemon extract.
  4. Fold in 7-Up.
  5. Pour into well-greased 12-cup Bundt pan or tube pan.
  6. Bake at 325 degrees for 1 to 1 1/4 hours.
  7. Make Lemon Glaze - mix powdered sugar and lemon juice together
  8. When cake is cooled, dribble with Lemon Glaze.

Looks good. Is it fattening? I need all the calories I can get!

Jill said...

Yes, I would say it's fattening (3 sticks of butter!). But everyone deserves a treat now and then.

That looks soooo yummy! I've never heard of 7UP cake. We have coca-cola cake here. I'm going to have to give that a try! Thanks :)

Daniel Ted said...

Sweet.

Dani said...

My mum always makes me a coca-cola cake for my birthday. It's like a chocolate cake, with marshmallows in it and coca-cola. It's the most bizarre thing in the world!

Nanci said...

What can I do to get people visit my site, and communicate with me. I'm not sure what I am doing wrong.

I think my url is: http://www.panicattacksbynanci.blogspot.com, or my email leswilson@bellsouth.net.

I'd appreciate an help or suggestions you can give me. Thanks.

Jill said...

hi nanci -

is your blog new? Sometimes it just takes a while for people to find it. You'll get more visitors if other blogs are linking to your blog. Do any of your friends or family blog? Maybe you could ask them to link to you.

As for comments, that is hard to control. Most people are comment-shy, so to get a lot of comments, you usually have to get a lot of visitors. I'd work on increasing your site traffic, and comments will follow.

Good luck!

Fran said...

Your cake looks good. I think I will try it.
