A classic recipe for a 7-UP cake that is made from scratch and topped with a simple lemon glaze.
This lemon bundt cake is a moist dessert with a sweet citrus taste to it.
Not only can 7-UP help relieve the occasional upset stomach but it acts like baking soda in many recipes like this one.
The lemon-lime flavor of the soda adds a nice citrus flavor to this moist dessert.
This is the perfect dessert that would be a great recipe to bring to any family gathering especially Easter.
The lemon flavor of the cake, as well as the lemon glaze, just says Spring to me.
Here are the tools you will need to make this simple recipe.
- bundt cake pan
- 2~mixing bowls
- measuring spoons
- measuring cups both liquid and dry
- hand mixer or stand mixer
- rubber spatula
- Baking Spray
Learn How To Make A 7-UP Cake From Scratch
These are the ingredients that are needed to make this cake.
- Melted Butter
- Eggs~ large
- Lemon Juice
- Vanilla Extract
In a large mixing bowl or the bowl to your stand mixer. Add melted butter and sugar, mix until the two are combined.
Add the eggs into the melt butter mixture and mix until the eggs are combined.
Beat in the lemon juice and vanilla extract. Slowly add the flour into the cake batter until all the flour is mixed in.
I do recommend mixing on low so the flour doesn’t go all over the place. In Baker’s Dozen, I have some more great baking tips that you may find useful.
Once you have all the flour into the dessert batter, add the 7-UP and mix until the batter is smooth.
You can use a rubber spatula to scrape the side of the bowl to make sure all the batter is mixed together.
How Long To Bake For?
Now that all the ingredients are mixed together, pour the batter into your favorite bundt pan that has been sprayed with cooking spray.
Place into a 350℉ preheated oven and bake for 60 minutes or until done. To check for doneness insert a toothpick into the center of the cake.
If the toothpick comes out clean then it’s done.
You will want to let the dessert cool for about 10 minutes before removing it from the pan. If it’s to warm you can risk the cake slitting in half.
How To Make A Lemon Glaze
The ingredients needed for the glaze are.
- Powdered Sugar
- Lemon or lime juice if you prefer.
- Grated Lemon Zest, if you like
The lemon glaze for this dessert is very simple to make. Place the powdered sugar into a medium-size bowl.
Add the lemon or lime juice, 7-UP, and lemon zest if you choose to.
I have tried this glaze with both the lime juice and the lemon zest, I prefer just using the lemon juice and no zest. With the lime juice, the glaze was too bitter.
Mix all the ingredients together until the frosting is smooth.
Now that the frosting is made and the cake has had time to cool. It’s time to flip the bundt pan onto a stand.
Place the stand on top of the bundt pan and flip them both over at once. The cake should slide right out of the pan.
Pour the lemon glaze over the cooled pound cake and let sit until the frosting has had time to set up.
