Jocelyn Delk Adams’ 7UP Pound Cake

Makes 1 pound cake

It’s a pound cake with 7 UP that has been in my family for decades. Served at a soul food or Southern dinner, this cake is perfection on your table. It was actually the very first cake I ever learned to bake, which I suspect is not only because it is my mother’s absolute favorite cake but also because it was not intimidating. It introduced me to the baking world, and I haven’t looked back. The cake itself is so easy to make and results into a wonderful cake that even a nine-year-old girl can master it!
