It's so easy to find amazing recipes on Pinterest or Google these days but for me, I love using old family recipes. I think it's so important to keep traditions alive and enjoy nothing more than making a cake from a recipe that my grandma used when I was a little girl when I'm cooking with my own kids. I'm a little bit sentimental in that way.
This Soda Pop Cake recipe is an old family favourite of one of my good friends, made by his mum Carol Hoff and also his grandma, Grace. I can't tell you how good it is! It's lovely and moist and has a delicious citrusy tang to it. It didn't last long in our kitchen!
3 cups sugar
3 cups plain flour
2 teaspoons lemon extract
3/4 cup 7up or similar lemon-lime flavoured soft drink
Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.
Cream butter and sugar for a full 20 minutes.
Add eggs 1 at a time.
Gradually add flour and beat well.
Add lemon extract and soft drink.
Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes in a well oiled bundt pan.
Cool for 8-10 minutes.
Dust with icing sugar or glaze as desired. I used a cup of icing sugar and put in some of the left over 7up and used that as my glaze - it was delicious!
This is such a yummy treat that I hope you will try.
