heads-up 7-up

i was so thrilled to share with you all my sweet Nana's recipe for 7-up pound cake, mmm its so delicious!!! i made one of andrew's favorite meals, and then surprised him with yummy dessert, we each had a small piece, watched a movie, and then headed off to bed.

BUT-- during the night, there was a huge mishap.

a certain member of our family helped himself to the entire rest of the cake. therefore i have no pictures of my lovely cake. grrrrr... Coach, really?!?

here is a substitute picture
and here is Nana's 7-Up Cake Recipe:

1 1/2 C. butter
3 C. sugar
5 eggs
3 C. flour
2 T. lemon extract
3/4 C. 7-Up

preheat over to 325. grease and flour fluted/bundt pan. cream sugar and butter until fluffy; add eggs and beat well; add extract and 7-Up. Mix well and add flour. Pour into prepared pan and bake for 1 1/4 hours.

its always a pleaser, and very easy.
give it a try-- just remember to put yours out of great dane reach.
happy wednesday!
