On Wednesday, July 14, we ran a promotion on our Facebook Page asking all of our friends to submit a recipe they have made with their Kitchenaid Stand Mixer. We decided that we would choose the yummiest sounding treat, reward that user with 5 Free Bids, and post the winning recipe here.
The winning recipe comes from Janelle, who shared with us her 7-UP Pound Cake.
7-UP Pound Cake
- 2 sticks of butter (or margarine)
- 8 tablespoons of shortening
- 3 cups of sugar
- 5 eggs
- 1 teaspoon of vanilla or lemon extract (I like to use both!)
- 3 cups of flour
- 7 ounces of 7-Up or other Lemon-Lime soda
Preheat oven to 130 degrees. Mix butter and shortening together until creamy. Add in eggs one at a time. After the eggs are mixed in well, pour in the extract. Then pour in flour and 7-UP alternatively. Continuing mixing until creamy. Pour mixture into cake pan (Angel Food cake pan or bundt cake pan both work well in this case) and bake for an hour and fifteen to an hour and 30 minutes. Once done pull it out to cool, then flip over and enjoy.
This sounds like a delicious cake, perhaps best accompanied by a decadent flavor of ice cream, and eaten in the evening underneath the summer sky. We look forward to trying out this recipe for ourselves. We’ll be sure to let you know how it comes out. Thanks again, Janelle!
