Why have 7-up cake recipes been popular for so many years? The addition of soda to cake batter — in place of water — gives the cake a lighter, airier texture.


1 package White or yellow cake mix
1 package Lemon jello
4 Eggs, beaten
1/2 cup Oil
1 cup 7-Up


Pour 7-up into a cup slowly to retain bubbles, but not have a lot of foam on

Put all ingredients into mixing bowl and beat two to three minutes at medium
speed. Pour batter into greased and floured tube pan.

Bake at 350 degrees 45 to 60 minutes until cakes tests done and barely
begins to pull away from sides of pan.

Glaze cake if desired, or sprinkle with powdered sugar.
