Tastefully Tueday...

When the weather starts to turn warmer we tend to eat a little later in the day since we are doing so much outside, so I love having something a little sweet but not too heavy in the afternoon.  This is a perfect snack with a glass of iced tea or lemon-aid.

7UP Cake

1 1/2 cups butter
3 cups white sugar
5 eggs
3 cups all-purpose or cake flour
2 teaspoons lemon extract
1 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup 7UP ™

Cream together the butter and sugar for 20 minutes. (that is not a typo, if you don't do the full 20 minutes the cake will end not be nearly as light) Add eggs, one at a time. Add flour, lemon extract, vanilla and fold in the 7UP ™ soft drink. Pour into a well-greased 12 cup Bundt pan. Bake at 325 degrees F (165 degrees C) for 60 to 75 minutes.  If you would like you can serve this with a glaze of 1 cup powdered sugar to 2 tablespoons of milk mixed together and spooned over the top, or you can serve with fresh fruit.

I love to read your comments, but due to spamming I have had to turn on the word verification again. Sorry for the extra step.
