7-Up Pound Cake with Lemon Glaze Recipe

Oh my gosh...who knew a good pound cake would be so easy to make! A few weeks ago, one of my neighbors brought over some yummy pound cake that she had made and we just loved it so I asked her for the recipe. Here it is!

Easy 7-Up Pound Cake with Lemon Glaze Recipe (from Hattie)

3 sticks of butter, all at room temperature
3 cups granulated sugar
8 large eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons lemon extract
3/4 cup 7-Up Soda

Lemon Glaze Ingredients:

1 box 10X sugar (confectioner's sugar)
1 bottle of lemon juice (or use fresh squeezed)

Cake Directions: Cream butter and sugar together in a large mixing bowl until its light and fluffy using an electric mixer. She states it will take approximately 10 minutes to cream it all to that consistency. Add one egg at a time and beat well after each egg addition. Add in the flour, lemon extract and 7-Up alternately, beating well after addition with your electric mixer. Bake in a tube pan (bundt pan) in a preheated 350 degree oven for approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes or until the cake is done. Remove from the oven and remove from the pan.

Lemon Glaze Directions: In a medium bowl, combine together some confectioner's sugar along with lemon juice until your preferred taste and of glaze consistency. Once you are happy with the taste and consistency, drizzle the glaze over your pound cake.
