7 up cake and Lemon Bars....

Baked goods - it's all they ever want around here

I got one of these recipes from Momma In Law and the other I inherited from an old co-workers Momma. Out of all the fancy things I could make around here this is what everyone wants.

7 up Cake:

preheat oven to 350

3 sticks butter
3 cups sugar
6 eggs
2 tsp vanilla
3 cups flour
3/4 c 7 up

Beat sugar and eggs until fluffy and white.
While that is beating butter and flour bundt pan. Add eggs ONE AT A TIME incorporating completely. Add vanilla scraping sides.
Add flour to mix 1 cup at a time again scraping sides and getting the bottom mixed in. Drizzle 7up in 1/2 at a time and fully incorporate. Pour into pans. Mini Bundt pans should be filled to half - regular bundt pans can be topped off.


Full bundt pan: 75 minutes
mini bundt pan: 35 minutes

Allow to cool slightly before flipping onto plates.
I find these don't need anything but a dusting of powdered sugar - or maybe a chocolate drizzle. Mr. Man likes his with Fresh Strawberries and Chocolate Sauce Drizzle.

Lemon Bars

2 cups flour
2 sticks butter (1/2 cup)
pinch of salt
1/2 cup powdered sugar

4 eggs
2 cups sugar
1/4 c flour
1/4 c lemon juice
1 tsp baking powder

Preheat oven to 350. Cut the crust with a pastry cutter or fork until it's incorporated. Press into a 9X12 pyrex or roasting pan. Bake 25 minutes or until golden brown on edges and firm in center.

Remove from the oven

whisk the sugar, flour and eggs together. Once this is 'smooth' add the wet mix on top of the crust and pop back into oven another 30 minutes.

Remove from the oven and cool. I run a knife around the edges of the pan while it's still hot because it makes it easier to split the bars out once it is completely cold.


1 1/2 c powdered sugar
2 Tbsp water
2 Tbsp lemon juice

Whisk the glaze together and smooth over the top of the cookie bars.
Cut in squares
