While some dessert trends are coming and going, the popular Bundt cake will be welcomed to all meetings, including baby showers, picnics and dinner parties. This cake takes on an extra-light texture with the smallest hint of citrus by adding 7UP to the batter.
Mama’s 7 Up-pound cake is crispy, very moist inside and with a fantastic lemon-lime icing. Surprise, because it receives its highness from the long and lovely process of creaming, it does not need a leaventing agent. How I wish a piece of it remained!
