WHAT IS 7 UP CAKE?
This is a 7 up cake recipe (or 7up pound cake recipe if you wish) that has been in my family for decades. Served at a soul food or Southern dinner, this cake is perfection on your table. It was actually the very first cake I ever learned to bake, which I suspect is not only because it is my mother’s absolute favorite cake but also because it was not intimidating. It introduced me to the baking world, and I haven’t looked back. The cake itself is so easy to make and results into a wonderful cake that even a nine-year-old girl could master.
Simple, easy and cheesy! My whole family loves this recipe so much. If it were for them, I’d be making this every day! Give it a shot, you’ll love it!To Make this Recipe You’ Will Need the following ingredients:
