How to make the best 7-up pound cake
3 sticks of butter
3 cups of sugar
3 cups of cake flour, sifted
1 tsp of vanilla flavoring
3/4 cup of 7 up
1 tsp of lemon extract
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Grease & flour a 9 inch bundt pan generously to prevent sticking.
Combine your butter & sugar until creamy. Add eggs, 1 at a time. Then add flour ( a little bit a time) until thouroughly combined together. Add the vanilla flavoring, lemon extract as well as the 3/4 cup of 7-up. The mixture will be somewhat kind of frothy, which is normal.
Pour the mixture into your greased & floured bundt pan. Put into 325 degree oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes until golden brown. Insert a toothpick to check for doneness. If the toothpick comes out clean, the cake is done. Let the cake cool in the pan completely. Then invert the cake onto a lined plate or cake serving platter. You can serve this cake as is or top if off with some whipped cream. You can also make a simple glaze by combining confectioners sugar with lemon juice or milk.
This cake makes a tasty ending to any meal. It can be also enjoyed with a cup of coffee for an early morning breakfast treat. Enjoy.
