I bake cakes for a living and this cake is waaaaaaaaay to sweet you need to cut the sugar in half and use cake flour instead of regular, with regular flour it's a very heavy cake, i'm not saying anything about moisture because that was good. and it could use an extra tsp. lemon extract. Don't forget to FOLD in the 7-up instead of beat!

My grandmother made the best 7up cake ever I was just wondering do I have to use rising flour? And will it taste just like 7up? Because my grannys was right on the money, tasted just like 7up, a few friends have made them for me and they tasted just like butter, I don't want that taste I was the 7up taste.
Thank you

I made this cake yesterday and my family cant get enough of it. Im going to Johnson&Wales in Rhode Island for Pastry Arts and i was just trying to widen my variety in things I already know how to make. My dad loved it so much that he took some to his co-workers. Thanx

This cake turned out very well. I paired it with cut up strawberries and it was a big hit. I made it in a loaf pan and cut it into slices.

I have made this cake for 2 years in a row and it is unbelievable. As a southern cook pound cake is a sacred thing. This recipe only needs the addition of an extra stick of butter for you to have that authenic pound cake you desire. Good Luck!

Flour should be 3 cups and there should be 3 cups of sugar added.

Something is totally missing in this recipe. I tried it twice and it came out like cookie dough.

I bake a lot of cakes, particularly Pound Cakes and sell them as my part-time business. Some weeks I bake more than 50 cakes so I'm always looking for easy scratch cakes. I found this cake very easy to prepare with very good taste & texture.

This has to a misprint, there is no sugar listed in this recipe.
