CLASSIC 7-UP POUND CAKE RECIPE

7-UP Pound Cake     

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1/2 cup shortening
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • 5 eggs, at room temperature
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup 7 UP

For the Glaze:

  • 1/4 cup 7 UP
  • 1/2 cup sugar
DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 300°F. Grease and flour a 10-inch tube pan.

Combine butter, shortening, sugar, vanilla and almond extract in the bowl of an electric mixer. Beat until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour and salt, and add to butter/sugar mixture alternately with 1 cup 7 UP, beating well after each addition.

Spoon batter into prepared 10-inch tube pan, and bake for 1 hour and 45 minutes, or until cake tester comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then invert on serving plate and remove pan.

While cake is cooling, make the glaze by stirring together the 1/4 cup 7 UP and 1/2 cup sugar in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, and boil 1 to 2 minutes or until sugar is completely dissolved. Punch holes in top of warm cake with a toothpick. Spoon glaze over cake, and cool completely before serving.

Makes one 10-inch cake.
