What does 7UP do in baking? 7UP acts as an alternative leavening agent to baking soda or baking powder. It adds a slight lemon flavor, and the carbonation helps the cake rise.
1. Mix up the batter ingredients, then add the 7UP and Flour in alternating additions until just combined.
2. Transfer the batter to a greased Bundt pan and bake for 55-65 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.
3. Let it cool in the pan for 20 minutes before inverting onto a cooling rack to finish cooling. This helps prevent sticking.
4. Whisk together the icing ingredients and drizzle over the cooled cake. Give it a few minutes to soak in before serving.
