The Best 7-Up Cake is a moist lemon cake that is made with a jazzed up boxed cake mix and topped with a delicious lemon icing drizzle.
THE BEST 7-UP CAKE
Recently I shared my recipe for DOUBLE FUDGE COCA-COLA CAKE and then I realized, I couldn't share the Coca-Cola Cake without also sharing the 7-Up Cake. The 7-Up Cake is similar to the Coke Cake in that you don't really taste the soda as a separate ingredient. It adds flavor and makes it super moist. You could eat this bundt cake without any icing, it is just so incredibly flavorful and moist but I think the slightly tart icing gives the sweet cake a nice pop of flavor.

TIPS FOR MAKING THIS BUNDT CAKE:
- Lemon cake mix can be substituted for the yellow cake mix for a more lemon-y flavor.
- This can be made in a 9X13 baking dish if you don't have a bundt pan.
- Bundt pans need to be greased really well. I like to use the Baker's Joy spray. It is a nonstick baking spray that has flour in it. It helps release bundt cakes so easily from the pan!
