This is the best homemade 7up cake recipe from scratch. At potlucks and get-togethers, it always disappears quickly.
I love the light lemon flavor and the moistness of the cake. It's always been a family favorite and will become yours too.
There are several ways and recipes to make a seven up cake and I will give you some ideas. I have recipes for this cake using different flavors.
You may bake it in a bundt pan, or 9x13 pan, and even make it as a pound cake. Now the best 7up cake recipes...ever.
PINEAPPLE 7Up CAKE RECIPE
1-1/4 cups white sugar
1/2 cup white Crisco shortening
2 egg whites
2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup 7-up
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
1 TBS fresh lemon juice
1 pkg instant lemon pudding mix (or pineapple pudding)
1 (8oz) can crushed pineapple - do not drain
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup fresh coconut
PREHEAT oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13 inch pan and place wax paper on the bottom.
Sift the dry ingredients together and set aside.
Cream the sugar and shortening together for 5 minutes. Add egg whites and lemon juice and beat again for 5 minutes.
Beginning with the flour mixture, mix in alternatively with the 7up; finishing with the flour mixture. Beat together for 3 minutes.
Pour into the prepared cake pan and bake for 25-30 minutes; or when a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Poke holes in the cake with a toothpick.
Icing: Mix the ingredients together in a saucepan and cook on medium until thick. Pour over warm cake, cover and refrigerate until completely cooled.
I hope you have a standing mixer, because you cream the butter and
sugar together for 20 minutes. Important step, but it's worth it.
