This is one of 25 dessert items being featured at a reunion where I AM HAVING A DESSERT TABLE. This classic recipe calls for 7 Up, but I was out of 7 Up & did not want to go to the store, and used Mountain Dew instead, and it still turned out great. Not only do I add lemon Juice to this recipe, I also add the zest of one lemon. It is always guest and family approved every time I serve it. The glaze add a little twist to the original recipe. I got the idea from my 6 Flavored pound Cake that also has a glaze. I am sure you and your friends & family will also approve of this Classic Dessert.

3 stick
3 c
granulated sugar
3 c
all purpose flour
5 large
eggs, room temperature
2 Tbsp
lemon juice
zest of 1 lemon
3/4 c
7-up (i used mountain dew)
1/4 c
7- up ( i used mountain dew)
1/2 c
granulated sugar
1 Tbsp

Directions Step-By-Step

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Cream butter with sugar until fluffy for about 15 to 20 minutes, till light and airy. Beat in eggs one at a time, and beat well after each addition.
Add flour, and lemon juice and mix as you go, then add lemon zest, and mix again. Add 7-UP and blend until well incorporated into batter.
Butter or grease a bundt pan then dust with flour, or USE BAKERS JOY MY FAVORITE and add batter to pan.
Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 1 hour and 15 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean, or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Prepare glaze by adding 7-Up with sugar, and heat until sugar dissolves and glaze becomes syrupy about 2-3 minutes. While still hot, add butter and stir until butter melts.
Poke holes in cake with a skewer, then spoon glaze over cake and allow glaze to penetrate cake thru holes.
PLEASE NOTE: I usually let cake sit in pan for about 10 minutes, and then invert onto a serving plate. Then poke holes and add glaze. If you like you can double the glaze ingredients, and poke holes into the cake while it is in pan, and drizzle half of glaze, then invert onto a serving plate, poke holes and add the remaining glaze.This cake is very moist & tasty.

This is an outstanding cake recipe...and the glaze, let's just say OMG!! I was searching for a glaze that I could make without powdered sugar because all I had was granulated and this was an SUPERB choice. I also added a little vanilla extract and a splash of lemon flavoring...YUMMMY!!

Thanks so much Marcia, yes I like the idea of adding the glaze, I always like to add a little spin or twist to traditional recipes, and this is one that I am happy that I did, because it is now my favorite way to make 7 Up pound Cake, by adding the glaze. I am happy to hear that you loved the cake, I am sure the extracts kicked up the flavor., and everyone was happy. I really appreciate you keeping me posted.
