My husband has a huge sweet tooth. In fact, I might go so far as to say all of his teeth are of the sweet variety. I have been wanting to make this 7-Up Pound Cake, from Taste of Home, for quite some time. It’s been in my “to try” file for a couple of years. I made it and had it waiting for him on his recent return from a business trip. Because I like to surprise him like that! We all thoroughly enjoyed this cake and the recipe now has a permanent home in my recipe box.
Truth be told, it wasn’t just for my husband. Exams were coming up for my kids and they get worked up about them so I wanted to make them something special too. This is a classic pound cake. Buttery and dense but also moist. It’s tasty by itself but you could certainly serve it with mixed berries and a bit of whipped cream if you’re looking to dress it up.
I made the cake according to the directions at Taste of Home but for the glaze I only used 7-Up, confectioners’ sugar and the lime zest and it was fine.
If you enjoy my Taste of Home Tuesday posts, I’d love to hear from you! Here are some previous TOH Tuesday posts. I’ve made this almond pecan granola a few times now. These creamy cantaloupe pops will cool you off on a hot summer day. These patriotic cupcakes are perfect for Independence Day. Cake mix bars are an easy option for any potluck party this summer.
