Cherry 7 Up Pound Cake



 

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….

Jocelyn asked me to make one of her recipes, adding my own twist if I wanted. I was immediately drawn to her 7 Up Pound Cake.

Two years ago I gave up drinking pop. I really didn’t have a huge addiction to pop (yes, it’s pop in this part of the country, you may call it soda or Coke?!), but I was suffering from some severe migraines and giving up artificial sweeteners in my diet pop was necessary. So with that, I gave up drinking all pop. However, every once in awhile I get a craving for a lemon lime drink or a root beer. Adding them to my baking and desserts is a great way to curb those cravings, haha!!

Let’s get to the recipe.
