Bake It Up with 7-Up

7-Up Cake has been popular since the 1950s when adding the lemon-lime soft drink instead of water to a mix was said to make the cake "light and airy". In the early 1980s the 7-Up pound cake baked in a bundt pan became popular. Any of the 7up cake recipes also make excellent cupcakes. We have included easy recipes for all three of the popular types of 7-Up cake and links to many other variations of the tasty "un-cola" cake, plus recipes for pineapple butter frosting and orange and apricot sauce.

Besides many 7up cake recipes, you'll also find the history of the drink, 7-Up, and some photos of vintage signs, posters and other 7up products that will send you on a trip down memory lane. We hope you enjoy these recipes and memories.

History of the 7-up Cake

Reference: Food Time Line Organization

Information about the history of the 7-up Cake with some of the recipes came from www.foodtimeline.org

1982

"Now here's a request that really fizzed. Sally Garber of Deerfield Beach asked our readers to come up with a recipe for 7-Up cake with pineapple frosting. We received 72 replies. Apparently, there are 3 versions of 7-Up cake: A pound cake, baked in a Bundt pan, that is made from scratch; a sheet cake made from a mix; and a 3-layer torte, also made from a mix."

The pineapple frosting comes in many versions. Usually, the topping for the pound cake recipe is a sprinkling of powdered sugar on this rich cake, or maybe a light glaze. The sheet cake or the 3-layer recipe often has a pineapple frosting, however some recipes called for a cooked frosting while others use a butter cream type. Some recipes add chopped pecans along with the pineapple; most also added coconut. And while most recipes called for the frosting to be spread on a cooled cake, some specified that the frosting be spread while the cake was warm.

Why would you add 7-Up to a recipe? According to a quote, from a cookbook published by The Seven-Up Co. in 1957: "Make a cake with the contents of a packaged mix, using 7-Up instead of the liquid in the recipe. You'll be amazed at how light and airy your cake is." Here are some of the delicious recipes for this easy to make cake.

This unusual recipe dates back to 1959:

"In the following recipe, dried apricots are cooked in 7-Up soft drink, for the brown sugar sauce. The natural lemon-lime flavor of 7-Up is used as the liquid ingredient.

Reference: "Please Your Family This Week With An Apricot Up-Side Down Cake," Daily Defender (Chicago), February 17, 1959 (p. 40)

7Up Pound Cake Recipe

This recipe for 7up pound cake is quite involved. Mary Jane Altman of West Palm Beach wrote the first recipe. She says, "It's a little extra effort, but it's worth it". Some similar recipes emphasized that it is important to beat the butter for a full 20 minutes. They also said the cake improves if baked a day before you plan to serve it, and keeps well frozen.

The Pineapple Butter Frosting can be used on other versions of the cake, too.

  • Prep time: 20 min
  • Cook time: 1 hour 25 min
  • Ready in: 1 hour 45 min
  • Yields: 25

Ingredients

  • 3 sticks of butter (margarine will not do)
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 teaspoons lemon extract
  • 3/4 cup 7-Up

Instructions

  1. Cream butter and sugar for 20 minutes. Add the eggs, one at a time. Gradually add the flour and beat well, then add lemon extract and 7-Up. Bake 1 1/4 hours at 325 degrees in a well oiled Bundt pan. Cool 8 to 10 minutes, then dust with powdered sugar. While most of the pound cake recipes didn't call for a frosting, Louise Gotti of Port St. Lucie frosts hers with this:
  2. PINEAPPLE BUTTER FROSTING
  3. 1/2 cup butter
  4. 3 cups confectioners' sugar
  5. 1/3 cup crushed pineapple with juice
  6. Cream butter. Add remaining ingredients and continue creaming until mixture is well blended and fluffy.

What a cute customizable postcard that would make a nice invitation to a birthday party or other celebration.

Aunt Eleanor's Tropical Cake Recipe - From a Mix

This is Steffan's recipe for 7-Up cake that begins with a packaged mix. Other similar recipes called for a yellow or a lemon cake mix in place of the pineapple, and lemon or vanilla pudding in place of the pineapple pudding. Pat Krenick of Goulds uses an orange cake mix and lemon pudding. Some cooks bake this in a 9-by-13-inch pan; others in three round pans.

  • Prep time: 20 min
  • Cook time: 1 hour 10 min
  • Ready in: 1 hour 30 min
  • Yields: 25

Ingredients

  • 1 package Pineapple Supreme cake mix
  • 4 eggs
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • 1 small package instant pineapple pudding
  • 10 ounces 7-Up

Instructions

  1. Mix all ingredients together and beat at medium speed of electric mixer for two minutes. Pour into greased and floured 8- inch cake pans or 13-by-9-inch pan. Bake 25 to 30 minutes in a 350-degree oven. Note: the baking time varies greatly from recipe to recipe; some call for 40 to 45 minutes of baking.
  2. PINEAPPLE FROSTING
  3. 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  4. 1/4 cup butter
  5. 2 eggs
  6. 1 small can flaked coconut
  7. 1 small can crushed pineapple
  8. Beat together sugar, eggs and butter until smooth, then stir in coconut and pineapple. Frost on cooled cake.
  9. This recipe for a cooked frosting comes from Krenick, who says the 7-Up cake with this frosting always is requested for family birthdays and special occasions. She got her recipe from friends in Arkansas:
  10. PINEAPPLE FROSTING
  11. 1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
  12. 1/2 stick butter
  13. 2 tablespoons flour
  14. 2 eggs
  15. 1 small can crushed pineapple in heavy syrup
  16. Note: some recipes call for the exact same ingredients, except a large can of pineapple.
  17. Mix ingredients together and cook until thick and transparent. Remove from stove and add 1 cup coconut. When cool, fill and frost cake. Finally, just to be sure we've had the last word on 7-Up cake, here's a recipe from Bedell that will really top it all:
  18. 7-UP ICING
  19. 2 egg whites
  20. 3 tablespoons 7-Up
  21. 1 cup granulated sugar
  22. 1/4 tablespoon cream of tartar
  23. Put all ingredients in the top of a double boiler over boiling water. Upper pan should not touch surface of water. Beat with rotary beater until stiff enough to stand in peaks, (about 5 minutes)."
  24. ---"AMERICA IS TURNING 7-UP CAKE," Linda Cicero, Miami Herald, August 5, 1982

Quote from a 1957 Seven-Up Company Cookbook

"Make a cake with the contents of a packaged mix, using 7-Up instead of the liquid in the recipe. You'll be amazed at how light and airy your cake is."

 

7 Up Pound Cake - Louisiana Recipe - Circa 1983

This is the recipe that we used in both north and south Louisiana. I found copies of it in Pots, Pans, and Pioneers III, Councils of Louisiana Chapter #24 Telephone Pioneers of America Cookbook and also New Orleans Public Service Middle South Utilities System Newsletter.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup butter
  • 3 cup sugar
  • 5 eggs
  • 3 cups flour
  • 2 Tablespoon lemon extract
  • 3/4 cup 7-Up

Instructions

  1. Cream sugar and butter together; beat until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well. Add flour. Add lemon extract and 7-Up. Pour batter into well greased and floured bundt pan. Bake at 325 degrees F for 1 to 1 1/4 hours. (Mattie M. Johnson, Ouachita Council, Monroe, LA; Betty Beatty, Caddo Council, Minden, LA).

Icing

Some of the early sheet cake recipes use a pineapple icing. Some are cooked and some are the butter cream type of icing.

Most of the bundt recipes use a sprinkling of powdered sugar or a light glaze.

 

7 Up Cake with Orange Sauce Recipe - Another Variation

Here is another version of the delicious 7-up Cake, but with an orange sauce instead of the traditional lemon.

  • Prep time: 20 min
  • Cook time: 1 hour 25 min
  • Ready in: 1 hour 45 min
  • Yields: 25

Ingredients

  • 1 c. butter
  • softened
  • 1/2 c. shortening
  • 3 c. sugar
  • 5 eggs (at room temperature)
  • 3 c. flour
  • sifted 3 times
  • 3/4 c. 7 Up
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp. butternut flavoring

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Cream butter, shortening, and sugar together. Add eggs, one at a time, and beat well. Add sifted flour and 7 Up (alternately), beating well. Add vanilla extract and butternut flavoring. Mix well. Pour into greased bundt pan or angel food tube pan and bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean.
  3. Let the cake completely cool before serving.
  4. ORANGE SAUCE
  5. 2 c. powdered sugar
  6. 1/4 c. orange juice (more or less)
  7. Put powdered sugar in a saucepan. Add enough orange juice to make a paste. Heat the mixture until the powdered sugar dissolves and the paste becomes more of a sauce. Add a little more orange juice, if needed.
  8. Pour a tablespoon or so of warm Orange Sauce over each slice of cake right before serving or put the orange sauce in a heat resistant pitcher and let everyone pour the sauce over their slice of cake themselves.
  9. Recipe from: Fun Vista

7-up Cupcakes

Use any of the recipes above, but instead of pouring the batter into a cake pan, pour it into muffin tins lined with cupcake papers. Bake in a pre-heated 350 degree F oven for 20-25 minutes or until toothpick stuck in the middle, comes out clean. Cool and frost with the icing of your choice.

Baking Utensils on Amazon

7up cakes can be baked in a bundt cake pan, an angel food cake pan or a regular flat cake pan. The bundt style with orange sauce is a great one to do for a party or other celebration. Here are a few of the baking utensils that you may need.

History of 7-up

Reference: About.com: Inventors

Source: The History of 7up

Charles Leiper Grigg

By Mary Bellis

The soft drink, 7up, was invented by Charles Leiper Grigg (originally of Price's Branch, Missouri). When he was an adult, Grigg moved to St. Louis, where he was first introduced to the carbonated beverage business.

By 1919, when he was working for Vess Jones, Grigg invented and marketed his first soft drink called "Whistle".

After a disagreement with management, Charles Grigg quit his job (relinquishing his rights to "Whistle") and started working for the Warner Jenkinson Company, where he developed flavoring agents for soft drinks. While there, he invented a second orange flavored soft drink called called "Howdy". He eventually moved on from the Warner Jenkinson Co.and took his soft drink "Howdy" with him.

Along with financier Edmund G. Ridgway, Grigg went on to form the Howdy Company. But his soft drinks could not stand up to "Orange Crush", which soon dominated the market for orange sodas.

In 1929, Charles Grigg decided to focus on lemon-lime flavors and and by October of that year, he had invented a new drink called, "Bib-Label Lithiated Lemon-Lime Sodas".

The name was quickly changed to " 7 Up Lithiated Lemon-Lime" and then again quickly changed to just plain 7up.

7up merged with "Dr Pepper" in 1986.

Ebay often has 7up memorabilia. Check back often to see what is available.

      I use 7 up instead of water in white or yellow cake mixes. I have used 7 up in cakes that have their own flavors, but has had mixed results. Make an experimental cake early so you can eat some and test it on other people, before your party!

      A very big and I mean BIG mistake was made when 7 UP changed their formula for original 7 UP. It was bad enough when Coke tried to come up with their formula change and produced Pepsi in a Coke can. What a disaster that was and then 7 UP went and changed their formula. Now you have Sprite in a 7 UP can. Can you bring back original 7 UP and call it 7 UP Classic. 7 UP cakes and Gin and 7 UP drinks would taste much better. Thanks for letting me thump my chest and get it out in the open. Jerry L. Bird Charleston SC. 843-769-6217...... ;>)~

      Never had 7-up cake. I think I will try your pound cake recipe since my husband loves pound cake.

      Crisp and clean with no caffeine. Amazing how you remember marketing slogans for years and years. I had no idea 7-up could be used to make a cake, let alone anything else. Great lens.

      I have been told of using frozen peaches, a cake mix and poour 7up over the top, but don't know the amounts. Anyone else do this and what are the amounts?

      I don't have a recipe unless you count what is on this page. Thanks.

      Nice Lens. I've never tried any of these 7-up cakes before. I'm not much of a baker but, I think I could do one of these!

      I'd never even heard of adding soda to a cake before. I think I'm going to have to experiment.

      I have not made one in a long time, I have a recipe for one in a hub. I will be trying one of your recipes soon. Thanks!
