My grandmother gave me my first cake recipe—a pound cake using 7UP—that her grandmother gave it to her. On top of being delicious, this 7UP cake represents family tradition, connection and love. —Marsha Davis, Desert Hot Springs, California

Ingredients

  • 1-1/2 cups butter, softened
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 5 large Nellie’s Free Range Eggs
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 cup 7UP soda
  • GLAZE:
  • 1-1/2 cups confectioners' sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon or lime juice
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons 7UP soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon or lime peel, optional

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°. Grease and flour a 10-in. fluted or plain tube pan.
In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in lemon juice and vanilla. Add flour alternately with 7UP, beating well after each addition.
Transfer batter to prepared pan. Bake 65-75 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pan 20 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
For glaze, in a small bowl, mix confectioners' sugar, lemon juice and enough 7UP to reach desired consistency. If desired, stir in lemon peel. Drizzle over cake. Yield: 16 servings.
Editor’s Note: To remove cakes easily, use solid shortening to grease plain and fluted tube pans.

"A rich and delicious cake that's really easy to make. I made the cake according to the recipe but only used 7Up in the glaze and it was fine. Not too sweet. Definitely a keeper.
