It's A Piece of Cake to Bake A Pretty Cake

If my collegiate career taught me anything, it's that you should always cite your sources.  I baked an incredibly successful bundt cake recently and I owe it all to the Nordic Ware Platinum collection Heritage Bundt Pan and the Pioneer Woman's perfect pound cake recipe.

The Nordic Ware® bundt pan can be purchased on Amazon, and if you order now, you should have it in time for Christmas. The hefty 10-cup capacity mold cooks evenly and produces a stunning spiral effect that will wow guests. I highly recommend this product for anyone who's in the market to zazz up their family pound cake recipe.

7-up Pound Cake

3 sticks Butter
3 cups Sugar
5 whole Eggs
1 teaspoon Butter Flavoring
2 teaspoons Lemon Flavoring
3 cups All-purpose Flour
1 cup Sprite, 7-UP, Or Sierra Mist
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees.
  2. Cream butter. Add sugar, 1 cup at a time, mixing after each addition. Add eggs, 1 at a time, mixing after each addition. Add butter and lemon extracts and mix well. Add flour, 1 cup at a time, mixing well after each addition. Add soft drink, then mix together until combined. Scrape sides of bowl, then mix briefly.
  3. Pour into a greased Bundt pan and bake for 1 hour to 1 hour 10 minutes, until the cake is no longer jiggly.
  4. Remove cake from oven and invert pan until cake drops out. Slice and chow down!
