7UP Pound Cake Tips
What does 7UP do for a cake?
7UP is used in place of traditional leaveners such as baking soda or baking powder. The carbonation helps the cake rise and gives it a lift. If you have any leftover 7UP, use it up in one of these other recipes that use lemon-lime soda
Can I substitute Sprite (or any other soda) for 7UP?
Because 7UP has a higher level of carbonation than Sprite, we suggest you always use 7UP in this pound cake recipe
. It will give you the best and most desired results.
How do you keep this cake moist?
The beauty of this 7UP cake is its moist and flavorful texture. To keep it extra moist, a simple syrup is key. You can make simple syrup
by boiling equal parts water and sugar until the sugar dissolves. Then, brush the syrup onto the warm cake with a pastry brush after removing the cake from the pan. The warm cake will absorb the syrup, keeping it moist.
