Remember this one? 7 up Cake

Sweet and buttery this cake is great to eat alone or with your favorite topping..Coffee, tea and a piece of this cake that melts in your mouth is a great cake you can freeze as well..I cut it into slices and pull a few out when I need a quick sweet tooth fix..  I topped the cake with some Orange Frosting...

 Happy Baking!!!!






3 sticks butter or margarine(softened)
3 cups sugar ( I cut down to 2 cups sugar and it was fine)
Beat above for at least 5 minutes or more
Add 5 eggs one at a time beating until all is blended and smooth.
Add 2 teaspoons vanilla extract ( you could use orange or lemon as well)  adding a little rind too!

After beating the above well..Pour into Well greased and floured Bundt pan.. Bake 325 degrees for 1 hour or longer until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean..Sprinkle with powdered sugar..as desired.. Enjoy
