I remember my mother making this recipe back in the mid 60's. Like this recipe, hers was a bundt/tube cake (not sure why it's labeled here as "layer" cake, although you could easily turn it into one by splitting the cake horizontaly, frosting, then reassembling). This cake has a good texture--dense and moist, but to be honest the flavor was not my favorite. The "novelty" factor of using 7-up was fun, though.

This recipe is fantastic! I made it for my sister-in-law's birthday & it was a huge hit. The only change I made was to add 1/2 of pecans to the frosting & it tasted great. Unfortunately this cake is so rich I would only want to make it on special occasions, but my in-laws will definitely be looking for it at every family gathering in the future.

I use this recipe except I add walnuts or pecans to the icing and it recieves rave reviews. In fact, every holiday I have to make this cake for my family and have even been asked to make it for pay.

Wonderful recipe.
