7-up Cake

A burst of lemon flavor and a layer of sparkling fizzy 7-up. What more could you ask for in a cake?  This cake is the perfect cake to enjoy if you want a flavorful cake that is not sickeningly sweet.

There are very few holidays or special occasions where this cake doesn't make an appearance. If you have any type of southern roots, then more than likely, you have had the infamous 7-up cake. This is a simple cake that is so full of flavor that it does not require any type of adornment other than a scoop of ice cream. The lemon flavor is even more pronounced if you eat the cake fresh from the oven, or just nuke in the microwave for a few seconds. 

Fresh lemons give this cake the perfect hint of citrus

7up adds another dimension of flavor


3 sticks softened hatter (not melted)
3 cups sugar
3 cups sifted all purpose flour
5 eggs
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
2 tablespoons lemon extract
1 teaspoon lemon zest
3/4 cup 7up


Cream together the butter and sugar until fluffy.Add eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition.  add lemon extract, zest and juice. Add flour, while alternately folding 7-up into the batter. Pour into a Bundt or tube  pan that is well coated with nonstick baking spray or if you prefer, grease and flour pan.

Bake in a preheated oven at 325 for 60-75 minutes.

Bon Appetit!

Hello, I'd like some clarity on your directions. The, "Add flour, while alternately folding 7-up into the batter." is confusing to me. Do you add the flour, mix/beat it into the batter, then (alternately) fold in the soda, or do you just alternate folding in the flour and the soda?
