Easy 7-Up Cake Recipe: This is my favorite recipe. My grandmother and mother used to make this when I was a child. It is absolutely wonderful! You can substitute 7Up® for milk in the glaze.
1 Box Yellow Cake Mix
1 small Box Instant Lemon Pudding
1 1/2 Cups 7 Up
3/4 Cup Vegetable Oil
2 Cups Powdered Sugar
1 Tbsp. Lemon Juice
2 Tbsp. Milk
Preheat oven to 325F degrees.
Spray 10-inch bundt pan with nonstick cooking spray.
In a medium bowl, combine all the cake ingredients.
Mix until thoroughly combined.
Pour batter into bundt pan.
Bake for about 45-55 minutes (until inserted toothpick or fork comes out clean.)
Allow to cool completely, then remove from bundt pan.
In a small bowl, combine powdered sugar and lemon juice.
Add milk slowly until you’ve reached desired consistency.
Pour over cake.
Please note that some meals are better to be prepared every once in a while because of some ingredients like meat, cheese, a lot of sugar, fats..etc. Having meals with these ingredients all the time may damage your health.
I made it using a recipe, added glaze from another (powdered sugar, 7-up, vanilla extract). It was soo good!!!
I love this recipe. My aunt Syble has made 7up cake for the past 50 years or so. It has become a holiday favorite in our family. It is worth noting that this is essentially a pound cake. That means that by design, the texture is denser and heavier than a layer cake. That means that generally speaking, smaller servings are in order. The recipe here is the same as my aunt’s except that instead of using 1-1/2 cups of butter, 1 cup of butter and 1/2-cup of all-vegetable shortening are used in the cake. The shortening changes the texture slightly, giving the cake a smoother texture. Another difference is in the glaze. Instead of using milk, melted butter is used; and 1-2 Tbsp. of lemon juice is used instead of vanilla extract. If the glaze is too thick, either additional butter or lemon juice can be added. The lemon juice flavor in the glaze complements the flavor of the cake. I prefer 7up, but my mother sometimes uses Mountain Dew instead of 7up, which yields a slightly different flavor; but delicious nonetheless.
