7-up cake

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

I made the 7-up cake and the texture was not very good and it did not rise evenly.  Could it be because I did not add any baking powder?  The recipe I found on here and by googling, did not have baking powder in the ingredients.

I've tried it too and it was horrid.

There. Their. They're not the same.

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

I found this on another posting.  It includes shortening.  That may make a difference.  I will try it tomorrow and see.

 

7-UP POUND CAKE

2 Sticks Butter or Margarine
1/2 C Vegetable Shortening
2 C Sugar
5 Eggs
3 C Flour
1 (7-ounce) Bottle 7-UP (or can of course)
1 Tsp Lemon or Vanilla Flavoring
1 Tsp Butter Flavoring

Preheat oven to 325. All ingredients should be at room temperature. Cream butter and shortening with sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each. Add flour alternately with 7-up and flavorings. Bake in a greased tube pan at 325 for at least 1 hour.

I have a wonderful recipe for 7-up cake that was given to me by a coworker. She makes it for every bake sale we have. I will be glad to share her recipe if you would like.

Thanks.  This is it :-)  I just have to make sure I fill the pans to the top if I want a 2" cake, because it doesn't rise.
