I want you to look at the video and follow her lead. it is just the right steps in making this cake she is great!
7 Up Pound Cake
3 Sticks Unsalted Butter, room temperature
3 Cups Granulated Sugar
5 Whole Eggs, room temperature
1 Tablespoon Lemon Extract
1 Teaspoon Pure Vanilla Extract
1 cup Ounces 7 up room temperature
3 Cups Cake Flour
Preheat oven to 350 degrees
In a large bowl using a hand mixer, blend the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, takes about 5 minutes. Next, add the eggs to the batter one at a time until each one is thoroughly blended. Add the lemon and vanilla extracts, mix well.
Next, add the cake flour and 7 up to the batter alternately beginning and ending with flour. Be sure to stop periodically to scrape down the sides of the bowl. Here’s the rhythm: 1 cup flour, mix; ½ cup 7 up, mix; 1 cup flour, mix; ½ cup 7 up, mix; and the last cup of flour, mix. All of the batter should be well incorporated.
Finally, using your hand or clean paper towel, rub the inside of a bundt, or angel food, cake pan with room temperature butter, just a thin even coating. Then put about a ¼ cup of cake flour into the pan and roll it around allowing it to stick to the butter in the pan, again, just a thin coating. Shake out the excess flour. Pour the cake batter into the cake pan evenly. Bake at 350 degrees for about 1 hour and 10 minutes or just until a wooden skewer comes out clean.
Cool the cake in the pan for about 10 to 15 minutes, remove and place it on a plate or cooling rack to finish cooling for about an hour.
