1 1/2 cup butter
3 cups flour
3 cups sugar
5 eggs
1 cup 7-Up, at room temperature
2 teaspoons lemon extract


Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease and flour bundt pan.

Cream butter and sugar until creamy. Add eggs one at a time until blended. Alternately add flour with the 7Up, ending with flour. Add the lemon extract and mix thoroughly. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake for approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool in the pan for 20 minutes. Remove from pan and cool thoroughly.

cook's notes

This is a wonderfully moist pound cake that is very popular for family or church events. If 7-Up is not available, any lemon-lime soft drink will be fine. Have ingredients at room temperature. Frosting is optional.

I have been making pound cakes for many years: this is at the top of my favorite recipe list! Moist, flavorful, enjoyable, portable. Excellent cake for any occasion. I made it for my daughter's birthday celebration and it received rave reviews

When I need to make a cake that I know is going to turn out (and that isn't from a mix!!) I turn to this recipe. It's a total no fail cake and everyone always enjoys it. Sometimes I frost it and sometimes I don't. Just depends on what I am serving it for. It also freezes very well just wrap it well.

This is a great recipe. It comes out PERFECT every time! I also add a lemon drizzle that really sets it off nicely. Its 2 cups Confetioners Sugar, 2 Tablespoons of butter, 1 Tablespoon of Hot water, 1/3 cup lemon juice. Heat and stir on low 2 minutes or until well blended and then drizzle on cool cake. It makes it go from good to great!!!

This recipe was very easy to follow. The cake was moist, light, and tasted great! Advice: be sure to use a larger bundt pan that can hold all of the batter. Bon apetite!

I don't know what happened, but this cake actually blew up in the oven I used a large bundt pan, but it still over flowed. the batter however tasted really good so I'm assuming the cake would have turned out good had it not blown up
