7UP CAKE

Ingredients

For the Cake:

  • 1 ½ cups unsalted butter room temperature
  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 5 large eggs room temperature
  • 3 cups sifted cake flour
  • 1/2 cup 7-Up soda
  • 2 teaspoons pure lemon extract

For the Glaze:

  • 1 cup confectioner’s sugar
  • 3 tablespoons 7-Up soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon pure lemon extract

Instructions

For the Cake:

  • Start by preheating your oven to 315°F then liberally spray a 10-cup bundt pan with non-stick baking spray.
  • In your mixer bowl, add butter and beat for 2 minutes on high speed. Slowly add in sugar and salt beat on high speed for an additional seven minutes until very pale yellow and fluffy.
  • Next, add eggs, one at a time, combining well after each addition and scraping down the sides as needed.
  • Turn your mixer down to its lowest speed, and slowly add flour into batter in two increments. Be careful not to overbeat.
  • Lastly, pour in 7 Up and lemon extract, scrape down sides and mix until just combined and turn off mixer.
  • Pour cake batter into prepared bundt pan, and bake for 1 hour and 15 -20 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean.
  • Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then invert cake on serving plate.

For the Glaze:

  • In a small bowl, whisk together confectioner’s sugar, 7 Up, and lemon extract until it’s pourable. Spoon over the cake and allow to harden.
