Description

The same ol’ 7-Up pound cake we all grew up with, but amped up with lemon and lime zest and a tangy/sweet glaze. Use a pretty bundt pan to up the ante!

Ingredients

  • Cake
  • 3 sticks Butter
  • 3 cups Sugar
  • 5 whole Eggs
  • 3 cups All-purpose Flour
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 cup 7-up
  • 1 Tablespoon Lemon Zest
  • 1 Tablespoon Lime Zest
  • GLAZE
  • 2 cups Powdered Sugar, Sifted
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • 1 Tablespoon Lemon Zest, Dried For At Least 30 Minutes
  • 1 Tablespoon Lime Zest, Dried For At Least 30 Minutes
  • 1 Tablespoon Lemon Juice
  • 1 Tablespoon Lime Juice
  • 1 Tablespoon Water + More As Needed

Preparation

Preheat oven to 325 degrees.

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream together butter and sugar. Add eggs one at a time, mixing after each addition. Combine flour and salt, then add it 1 cup at a time, mixing after each addition. With the mixer on low, slowly add the 7-Up until combined. Add 1 tablespoon of both lemon and lime zest and mix. Scrape the bowl and mix again.

Thoroughly spray a bundt pan (I used a Jubilee bundt pan) with nonstick baking spray. Add large spoonfuls of batter until the pan is filled, then even out the surface. Bake for 1 hour 10 to 1 hour 15 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and let it sit in the pan for 15 minutes. Carefully turn it out onto a cake plate and let it cool.

Combine all the glaze ingredients in a bowl and gently whisk until thick but pourable. Use a large spoon to drizzle it all over the cake. Let the glaze set, then slice and serve!

Optional: Sprinkle with a little extra lemon and lime zest.

I first saw this post in April and went on a mission to find the pan! My sister surprised me with the pan for my birthday and the cake turned out so awesome! I cannot wait to make it again! Thanks so much for sharing.

i have had this pan for about six months….i love bundt pans…this one is awesome, nordic ware is the best. the pattern makes all cakes look amazing, have done a white chocolate lb cake and then drizzled with a potent raspberry sauce and fresh raspberries…..no one wanted to cut it too pretty….just as this one is. i have had the 7up recipe for many years and look forward to using it again, in this pan….always a winner… especially in the summer with a glass of white sangria.
