7-Up® has the reputation of making everything better–punches, mixed drinks, marinades, 7-Up Pound Cake... Hold up, cake? You read that right. Think of your favorite sweet and rich vanilla pound cake, but even lighter and fluffier! And then imagine it drizzled with a zesty, sugary glaze derived from the classic citrus soda. That's a 7-Up Pound Cake. Put your trust in the pop.
