7UP Pound Cake

This easy, lemony 7UP Pound Cake is moist, delicious, and tastes just like the soda! And it’s MADE with 7UP, too! A party and potluck favorite.

While all cakes can be made from scratch, I decided to go with a boxed mix for this one for health and financial reasons.

You see, the from-scratch versions I found required THREE STICKS of butter. That results in more calories and more money and NO additional cake beyond what you would end up with if you used the boxed mix method.

Save your self time, money, and calories and go with the boxed cake mix.

A photo of a slice of 7UP Pound Cake drizzled with glaze on a plate. A second slice is blurred in the background and part of a white cake stand is visible.

(For all the pastry chefs out there, the from-scratch method is included too. Three sticks of butter and all.)
