7UP Pound Cake

I've seen this recipe on the web for years.  I finally decided that I had to make it when the Pioneer Woman posted it on her blog.  She raved about it, and I already know that everything she makes is amazingly yummy.  This cake was no exception - it was fantastic!  We both loved it.  It is even better with a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top!  The perfect dessert for a nice spring or summer day.

3 sticks Butter
3 cups Sugar
5 whole Eggs
1 teaspoon Butter Flavoring
2 teaspoons Lemon Flavoring (I used 1/2 tsp lemon oil)
3 cups All-purpose Flour
1 cup 7-UP

Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Cream butter. Add sugar, 1 cup at a time, mixing after each addition. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing after each addition. Add butter and lemon extracts and mix well. Add flour, 1 cup at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add soft drink, then mix together until combined. Scrape sides of bowl, then mix briefly.

Pour into a greased Bundt pan and bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes, until the cake is no longer jiggly. Remove cake from oven and invert pan until cake drops out.

  3. Steph, this cake is a work of art. This is my first visit to your blog. I had intended only to say hello but was lured by your prior posts and stayed much longer than I planned. I really like your blog and will be back often. I hope you are having a wonderful day. Blessings...Mary

  4. ok, gotta make this one. Looks really good.

  5. oooo cool! i just love weird secret ingredient recipes! they always surprise you!

  6. Did you let it cool in the pan for any amount of time? I tried to make this right after she posted it, when I inverted it I heard a big "CLUNK" and half of the cake fell out and the rest was on the bottom. :( I made sure my bundt pan was very well greased. It looked like a cake exploded on the cake pan. I was so upset. My husband just laughed and said the part that fell out tasted pretty darn good. I've been afraid to try and make it again. Any tips?

  7. I saw your beautiful photo on Photograzing. Congratulations. That cake looks awsome.

  8. The crust on that looks wonderful. Perfect actually. Now I have to go buy some 7-up and make this for myself.

  12. I want to make this soon, but I noticed that there is no leavening mentioned in the recipe.,ie. baking powder, soda, or salt. Is that correct as printed? Thanks.
