I love "vintage" (like from the 50s) recipes with odd ingredients and among those kinds of recipes soda pop recipes are at the top of the list.
Here's a pound cake that uses 7-up...both in the cake and in the glaze.
The only trouble I had was getting the cake out of the bundt pan so grease that pan REALLY well.
- 1-1/2 cups softened butter
- 3 cups sugar
- 5 eggs
- 1 teaspoon lemon extract
- 3 cups flour
- 3/4 cup 7-up (or other lemon/lime) soda
- 3/4 cup powdered sugar
- 4 teaspoons 7-up
Preheat oven to 325.
Grease bundt pan well...really well.
Mix butter until light and fluffy -- should take a couple minutes if the butter's soft.
Slowly cream together with sugar.
Mix in eggs, one at a time, followed by lemon extract.
Slowly add flour then the soda.
Pour batter into pan and bake for 1-1/4 hours until a wooden pick comes out cleanly.
Remove from pan and cool for 8-10 minutes.
Mix glaze ingredients and then spoon over cake.
