Just for you:

Seven-Up Cake

Seven Up makes this bundt cake moist and delicious.

2 cubes (8 ounces) margarine or butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
3 cups sugar
5 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 teaspoon butter flavoring (found near vanilla in grocery stores)
3 cups flour
7 ounces 7-Up
PREPARATION:

Cream margarine and shortening until fluffy. Add sugar slowly. Add eggs one at a time. Mix in vanilla and the butter flavoring. Alternately add the flour and the 7-Up. Bake in greased, floured bundt pan or 10-inch tube pan at 350 degrees for about 1 hour. If desired, glaze with powdered sugar icing (below).
Powdered Sugar Icing

1/2 cup powdered sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1-2 tablespoons water
Mix all ingredients until smooth and of desired consistency. Drizzle over cooled cake.

I looked it up online... never tried it so I can't tell you if it's good or not.. but it sounds good...

k, a while back I made a tres leches cake filled with strawberries and bananas, I used lime juice in the fruit mix to keep the bananas from turning brown. Gave it a wonderful tart flavor. Or you could make a key lime icing or filling for the cake. that would be good.
I still think tequila is the best idea though lol

7UP cake!!! YUUUUUMMMMMM!!!! I grew up eating this cake... icon_lol.gif It was very popular in the late 70's/early 80's. Very refreshing and I think it's best during those atrociously hot summers we have down here. Maybe it's a Southern thing because I know many Northerners and Mid-Westerners who've never heard of it? When DH and I lived in Key West, I would squeeze a little key lime juice into the batter and the icing both! And the best part...I walked out of my apartment, down the alley to the street and over the the bed & breakfast 2 doors down and picked the limes right out of the tree they had there! Now I go to our back yard....we brought a cutting from that tree back with us when we moved home!! icon_biggrin.gif Sorry...the whole 7UP cake just brought back a few memories icon_rolleyes.gif mmmmmm....7UP cake! mmmmmm.....limes - Key limes!!! lol icon_lol.gificon_razz.gif
