Cherry 7 Up Pound Cake recipe

Every day I am reminded that I am surrounded by talented friends. The food blogging world is HUGE. Millions of food blogs, and the field keeps growing. Yet, somehow, I have found myself lucky enough to be among some of the most talented, kind, and truly remarkable people.

And every once in awhile, I just need to share this with you, my readers.

My good friend, Jocelyn, from the blog Grandbaby Cakes sent me her beautiful family photo album. Okay, I kid. It’s her gorgeous cookbook, aptly titled Grandbaby Cakes. However, flipping through the pages I feel at times like I am snooping and lurking through her family history and her secret family recipes! With every recipe she tells a story. And with every story, she shares a recipe. They really go hand in hand in this book. And soon, like me, you’ll be wanting to just read every entry. And many of the recipes include family photos! So as she tells the story, you can picture the people because their photo is right there. It’s beautiful.

But you can’t sell cookbooks with just words and photos. You have to have great recipes, am I right? You would never buy a cookbook as a gift to someone if you didn’t like the recipes in it. Let me tell you a little about the recipe I made….


  •  1 1/2 cups unsalted butter, softened
  •  3 cups granulated sugar
  •  1 tsp kosher salt
  •  5 large eggs
  •  3 cups cake flour
  •  1/2 cup Cherry 7 Up
  •  1/2 cup maraschino cherries, stems removed, patted dry


  •  2 cup powdered sugar, divided
  •  3 Tbsp maraschino cherry juice
  •  2 Tbsp milk


  1. Preheat oven to 315 F. (yes, it's a lower temperature than normal). Prepare a Bundt pan with nonstick baking spray, set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, attached to a stand mixer fitted with a whisk attachment, but the butter for 2 minutes on high until pale in color. Add in sugar and salt and cream together for an additional 7 minutes, scraping down the sides of the bowl a couple times. Mixture will be very pale yellow and fluffy.
