Too much sugar, 3/4 c sugar works well for me because the 7-up has sugar in it. Also, try lemon flavor (1 capful), rum extract (1 capful) and brandy extract (1 capful). Yummy, I've been making this for years. My father taught me to make it.

Really? 3 cups of sugar can be reduced to 3/4 cup? I admit 3 cups is a LOT of sugar but that's a HUGE reduction!

One thing missing here is that the butter, sugar and eggs should be beaten for at least seven minutes. Also, you can use regular flour. I've been making this cake for literally decades and it rises really high. It should be cooked in an angel food tube pan, rather than a bundt pan because of the rise. Otherwise, you have cake batter run all over your oven.

Love this recipe, my mom makes this for all the holiday's including Super bowl! She uses lemon extract has nice flavor!

All I want is the recipe that was on the carton of your lemon cak e mix box for pound cake. I bought a package expectimg to find it but it is not there anymore . Could you please send it. Thank you. Jennie huntley

Hello MsBJCashen, Thank you for all these great suggestions! We love the feedback.

Just a note, I use 1/2 c. butter flavored shortening and 2 sticks butter because I find that it gives a more moist, great textured cake. Also, be sure that eggs, butter, shortening are at room temp, and I also use regular Gold Medal Flour for this recipe, it also makes a better cake, and no need for the cake flour in my opinion.
