Seven-Up(R) Cake II
November 28, 2008

Seven-Up Cake is the BEST cake ever, a classic dessert. It's a tradition in my family, and everyone who tries it, absolutely loves it. There's just something about it that makes it a very special cake. A few tips: Please cream your butter for a few minutes first on high speed. Then cream the butter and sugar together for 15-20 minutes...knowledgeable cooks know that this makes ALL the difference. Beat for one minute after adding each egg, on a high speed. The egg mixture should be incredibly fluffy. I then add THREE tsp. of vanilla extract, then beat in my flour and 7-UP in stages (one cup of flour, then 2 oz. of 7-UP). Beat for one minute after each 7-UP addition. Finally, add THREE tsp. of lemon extract, and beat it all together. Also, it is very easy to overbake the cake, so start checking it at 50 minutes. 75 minutes is usually way too much. Finally, you can add up to 8 oz. of 7-UP--just play around with the amount that suits your taste. Seven-Up cake is time consuming, but oh so worth it for special occasions!
