A soda and a cake… this is every kid’s dream come true, right? With the few amount of ingredients it takes to make this cake, it’s like a #ThrowbackThursday showing how Grannies were making “insanely easy” cakes before anyone ever thought about putting them on a blog. Let me tell you, I don’t even drink soda pops (i.e. “cokes” because I’m from the south where everything is a coke, y’all) and I loved this cake! I’m also a bit of an airhead that doesn’t use the oven because I forget it is on – but when I have a baking goal, I get it done. This one made my life easy. Y’all know how much I love old things, right? Well, I was elated when my NeeNee scanned and sent me the 7UP Cake recipe, along with a few more! I keep bragging about how simple, good and old it is – let me elaborate.
Ingredients + Directions
Only 7-8 ingredients, and it can even be done without high-tech kitchen tools. I was in the moving process when I made this cake so I did not have my mixer. I mixed and folded everything in with the shear strength of my little bitty arms. They were tired, but it worked. Grab a large spoon and make it happen, no excuses. I used a bundt pan because it automatically makes every cake pretty!
If you’re on dessert duty during the holiday season, this is an easy cake to make from scratch and impress your guests with!
