  • Oven


7Up Pound Cake Ingredients

  • 3 cups of Swan Cake flour
  • 3 sticks of softened unsalted butter at room temperature
  • 1 lemon for lemon zest optional
  • 5 large eggs at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon of lemon extract
  • 3 cups of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup of 7Up at room temperature

Ingredients of Homemade Glaze

  • 4 tablespoons of whole milk
  • 2 cups of confections powdered sugar
  • 1 tablespoon of lemon flavor


How to Make 7Up Pound Cake from Scratch

  • First, I'm going to start with 3 sticks of room temperature butter. Then, add 3 cups of sugar.
  • The butter and the sugar must mix for at least 5-6 minutes( this is very important). 
  • After you've mixed the butter and sugar together add 5 room temperature eggs, one at time to your mixture as it mixes. 
  • This step is completely optional, but you can add  1 tablespoon of lemon zest to your batter.
  • Then, add 1 tablespoon of lemon flavor, 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract, and the optional tablespoon of lemon zest. Don't forget to continue mixing the batter!
  • Next, add 3 cups of Swan Cake flour and 3/4 cup of 7Up. While still mixing  alternating 1 cup of cake flour at a time with the 7up. 
  • Now, mix all of your ingredients together for at least 1 minute. 
  • I'm using a Nordic Ware Angel Food Cake Pan, but any bundt cake pan will work. Be sure to butter and flour your pan, then pour in your batter. Allow your cake to bake on 325 degrees for 1 hour and 10 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
  • Once your cake is finished, let it cool in the cake pan for at least 1 minute.
  • Then, turn the cake onto a cooling rack, be careful during this process because the cake pan is still hot.

How to Make Homemade Glaze

  • While the cake is on the cooling rack you can begin to make your homemade glaze. You will need 2 cups of powdered sugar,  4 tablespoons of whole milk and 1 tablespoon of lemon flavor. 
  • Then, mix all of your ingredients together, if you prefer a thicker glaze add more powdered sugar. 
  • I used a squeeze bottle to drizzle the glaze over my cake.
  • Once my cake has cooled, I flipped it over onto my cake plate, and added the glaze.
