7Up Pound Cake


Made from simple ingredients like flour, butter, eggs and 7Up soda, this cake is moist, flavourful and perfect for any occasion. The lemon zest and extract add a delightful tang, while the 7Up soda gives it a light texture.


  • 3 cups Swan Cake flour
  • 3 sticks unsalted butter (softened at room temperature, plus a little extra to grease the pan)
  • 1 lemon (for the zest, optional)
  • 5 large eggs (room temperature)
  • 1 teaspoon lemon extract
  • 3 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup 7Up (at room temperature)

Method of preparation:

Preheat the oven to 325°F (165°C).

Butter a large 12-cup Bundt pan well.

In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and sugar until light and fluffy. This step is crucial, so beat on medium speed for at least 5-6 minutes.

Add the room temperature eggs, one at a time, while continuing to mix on low speed.

Optionally, add 1 tablespoon of lemon zest to the batter for extra flavour.

Stir in 1 teaspoon lemon extract and 1 teaspoon vanilla extract.

Gradually add 3 cups Swan Cake flour alternating with 3/4 cup 7Up. Mix well after each addition.

Continue mixing for at least 1 minute.

Pour the mixture into the greased Bundt tin.

Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the centre comes out clean.
