How To Make aunt helen's 7-up pound cake

  • Creaming the butter and the sugar together to a smooth consistency makes for a delicious, luscious cake.
    Soften butter ( an easy way is by microwaving for 30 secs), and beat with sugar until smooth. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition.
  • It makes a difference to the consistency of the batter when you add and mix eggs one at a time.
    Sift together the flour and baking powder in a separate bowl. Add alternately to creamed mixture with 7-up, ending with dry ingredients.
  • The cake batter is now ready for the tube, bundt, or loaf pan. It helps to use a product such as Joy which combines both an oil and flower mixture.
    Add vanilla and lemon juice. Beat well. Bake in greased and floured tube pan (a bundt pan or several bread loaf pans work as well) at 325 degrees for 1 hour.
  • Fresh out of the oven with the glaze.
    Make glaze mixture with confectioners sugar and orange juice and spoon over cake while still warm. As a tip when making the glaze, put the 1 cup of confectioner's sugar in a small bowl start to squeeze the orange juice into the bowl and stir. The confectioner's sugar will start to thicken, and just add enough where you can use a spoon and drizzle over the cake..
