Such a great pound cake!


7-UP Pound Cake
(mine was Sprite cake I guess!)


LEMON GLAZE

  • 2/3 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 2 t. 7-Up
  1. Cream together butter and sugar for 20 minutes. (20!?) I did mine in my KitchenAid for about 6 minutes on medium high- who has 20 minutes?)
  2. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition.
  3. Add flour, mixing until combined.
  4. Add lemon extract.
  5. Fold in 7-Up.
  6. Pour into well-greased bundt pan or tube pan. (12 cup).
  7. Cook at 325 for about 50 minutes to an hour, or until top and sides look healthily browned. (Mine took about an hour and 5 minutes)
  8. Cool, remove carefully from bundt pan by loosening with spatula first, pour on glaze, and eat.
We all LOVE this cake. It is a great snack cake. A piece here, a chunk there....it's light, refreshing, and delicious. The lemon flavor is not overpowering but wonderfully aromatic and flavorful. The glaze adds the right amount of interest to the cake. It is like pound cake in density, but it manages to be light. Yum.
