7-Up Cake Recipe With Seven-Minute Frosting

7-Up Cake Recipe With Seven-Minute Frosting


2 ½ cups sugar
3 sticks margarine
3 cups flour
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
5 eggs
2 teaspoons lemon flavoring
¾ can of 7-up Soda (Approx 1⅓ cups soda)


1.                  Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy.
2.                  Add eggs one at a time until well blended.
3.                  Add dry ingredients sifted together.
4.                  Add lemon flavoring.
5.                  Add 7-up soda.
6.                  Pour into well greased and floured 10 inch tube pan.
7.                  Bake at 325° for approximately 1 20 -30 minutes until tooth pick inserted in center comes out clean.
Recipe was given to me by a co-worker in 1986 Patti Stowe.

Seven-Minute Frosting
2 egg whites (¼ cup)
1 ½ cups granulated sugar
1 tablespoons light corn syrup, or ¼ teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (lemon)


1.                  In top of double boiler, combine egg whites, sugar, corn syrup, and ⅓ cup water.
2.                  With portable electric mixer or rotary beater, beat about 1 minute to combine ingredients.
3.                  Cook over rapidly boiling water (water in bottom should not touch top of double boiler), beating constantly, about 7 minutes, or until stiff peaks form when beater is slowly raised.
4.                  Remove from boiling water.  Add vanilla; continue beating until frosting is thick enough to spread – about 2 minutes.
5.                  Makes enough to fill and frost an 8-inch or 9-inch two layer cake; or to frost a 13-by-9-by-2-inch cake.

Recipe was taken from McCall CookBook, the chapter on “Cooked Frostings” page 148 edition of between 1950 – 1960s.
