7-Up Cake

I have had a huge pile of recipes saved for years and for some reason this recipe is at the top of the list and yet I just tried it out. This cake has been around for a very long time. It tastes better than it looks -- thank goodness!

7-Up Cake with Pineapple Coconut Frosting

3 cups cake flour
3 cups granulated sugar
5 eggs
1-1/2 cups butter, softened
3/4 cup 7-Up (poured into a cup first)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 teaspoons lemon extract

Cream sugar, butter and eggs until creamy. Add flour 1 cup at a time, add vanilla and lemon extract and finally 7-Up. Pour into prepared pan. Bake at 350 for 1 hour. This can be simply glazed or use the frosting below. You can also bake this in layers and use the frosting as a filling kind of like a German chocolate cake.

COCONUT PINEAPPLE FROSTING/FILLING

1 large can crushed pineapple
1 stick butter
1 1/2 c. sugar
2 eggs
2 tablespoons flour
1 cup coconut
1/2 cup pecans

Mix all ingredients in a saucepan and bring to a boil. It will thicken as it cools. Spread on cake.
