7UP Pound Cake is an old-fashioned delicious cake with a mild lemon flavor.
The leavening agent in this famous dessert is 7Up Cola.
Easy to make with a few simple ingredients.

Delighted to share the ingredients I purchased and used to make this delicious dessert.

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF 7UP IN A POUND CAKE?
This recipe calls for 1/2 cup of 7UP because it has enough carbonation to make the pound cake rise.
It replaces traditional leavening agents: baking soda and baking powder.
CAN SPRITE BE USED AS A SUBSTITUTE?
No. Although Sprite is clear and bubbly just like 7Up, it does not work in this recipe due to insufficient carbonation. Do not use it as a substitute.
Use only 7UP because it has more carbonation. Perfect in this pound cake.
WHAT IS CAKE FLOUR?
This recipe calls for 3 cups of cake flour.
Cake flour is specifically formulated for baking cakes. It’s milled from select soft wheat that gives cakes a high volume, fine texture and a delicate tenderness.
According to info printed on box of the brand I used (photo below), cake flour is pre-sifted. However, I always sift before using. This step is optional.
Lightly spoon flour into measuring cup and level with a spatula or smooth end of a knife.
For best results, use unsalted butter only. No substitutes.
HOW TO PROPERLY GREASE BUNDT PAN
I use Baker’s Joy which is baking spray with flour. Easy and efficient to use. No mess.
Thoroughly grease bundt pan by spraying Baking Spray on bottom, sides and around the tube.
TEST FOR DONENESS WITH A LONG KNIFE OR WOODEN SKEWER
A toothpick is too short because it only pierces the top portion of the cake.
Gently insert a butter knife or (long wooden skewer_ all the way to the bottom of the cake.
Be sure to gently insert knife to avoid scratching bottom of cake pan.
Remove. Cake is done if no batter is shown on the blade.
