  • 1 and 1/2 cups unsalted butter, softened
  • 3 cups granulated sugar
  • 5 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup 7 Up soda
  • Optional: powdered sugar for dusting



  1. Preheat your oven to 325°F (160°C). Grease and flour a 10-inch bundt pan.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.
  3. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  4. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  5. In a separate bowl, whisk together the all-purpose flour and salt.
  6. Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, alternating with the 7 Up soda, beginning and ending with the flour mixture. Mix until just combined.
  7. Pour the batter into the prepared bundt pan, spreading it out evenly.
  8. Bake in the preheated oven for 60 to 70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.
  9. Allow the cake to cool in the pan for 15 minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. Once cooled, dust the top of the cake with powdered sugar, if desired.



  • For a more intense citrus flavor, you can add a tablespoon of lemon zest to the batter.
  • Serve slices of 7 Up Pound Cake with a dollop of whipped cream or a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an extra special treat.
