7UP Pound Cake
In the early 1950s, soda companies began marketing their products as more than mere drink. The effervescent, slightly acidic soda gives this cake the flavor, lift, and uniquely tender texture that make it a treasured favorite.
Why This Recipe Works
In the early 1950s, soda companies began marketing their products as more than mere drinks. Odd recipes like 7UP Salad and 7UP Parfait Pie have mercifully been forgotten, but 7UP Pound Cake remains a treasured favorite. To bring out some citrus zing and balance the flavors of our 7UP Pound Cake, we cut back on the amount of sugar called for in the original recipe. Since finely grated zest can be added without affecting texture, we added plenty of lemon and lime zest. For extra citrus punch, we also added fresh lemon and lime juice.
