Isn’t this cake so happy?! I just screams summer to me! My family loves citrus desserts, and this one is loaded with lemons, limes, and 7UP! If you’ve never baked a cake with 7UP before, now is the time! It is so moist and flavorful – you’re going to love it!
Time for a quick trip to Walmart for some fresh lemons, limes and 7UP!
A long time ago 7UP pound cakes were popular, but a lot of the recipes use a cake mix. This particular cake isn’t a pound cake – it’s much lighter, yet it still has a lovely butter taste. No cake mix needed for this recipe either. It’s so easy to make from scratch, even beginner bakers can whip up this cake in no time!
I have been wanting to make a cake like this for awhile. The weather is finally warmer and we are craving lemons and limes! The ingredient list for this cake is fairly short, and super simple. You probably have most of them in your kitchen already! Next time you make a Walmart run, make sure to pick up 7up, invite a few friends over, and make this cake!
This is such an easy recipe to make, and the finished cake looks so pretty and impressive. The 7UP ensures you will have a super moist, light cake that everyone will rave about!
Ohhh, and make sure to get extra 7UP while you’re shopping at Walmart – wouldn’t a fun lemon lime punch be such a great accompaniment to this cake?! Totally doing this for our next summer get together! Get more simple summer recipes using 7UP here!
7 UP Cake from Scratch with Lemon Lime Glaze
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- 1/2 cup unsalted butter (softened)
- 1 cup oil
- 2 cups granulated sugar
- 4 eggs
- 3 cups all purpose flour
- 1 cup 7UP
- juice and zest of one large lemon
- juice and zest of 2 limes
|Preheat the oven to 350 |
In a large mixing bowl, cream together the oil, butter, and sugar.
Add the eggs, mixing well after each addition.
Add the flour and mix well.
Add 7 UP, lemon and lime juices, and zest. Mix until well combined.
Pour into 2 greased 9" cake pans.
Bake for 35 minutes or until tester inserted into the center of the cakes comes out clean.
Let cool in the pans 20 minutes. Run a knife around the edges of the pans, and turn upside down onto a cooling rack.
|In a bowl, whisk together the sugar and juices until smooth. If too thick, add more lemon or lime juice until the glaze is the consistency of glue. |
Place one cake on a cake stand and evenly pour half of the glaze on top. Place the other cake on top and pour remaining glaze over the cakes, letting it drip down the sides.
If desired, top with thin slices of lemons and limes. Enjoy!
