It is that time of the year where we are all beginning to think about bikini weather so substituting some of our favorite dishes like 7UP pound cake for something a little more weight conscious is always a plus.

Here is an easy substitute for a skinny 7UP pound cake that is just as delicious.

7UP Pound Cake Using Cake Mix

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 Box Yellow Cake Mix
  • 1 Can 7UP TEN

DIRECTIONS:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and spray your bundt pan, greasing well.

Mix together the 7UP TEN and cake mix until smooth.

Cook for approximately 1 hour or until cake comes out clean.

You can dust this cake lightly with powdered sugar for a little extra sweetness.

What I love about both of these cakes, the traditional southern version or the skinnier version is that you can use 7UP TEN in both which is a great less calorie option but taste just as full-flavored as regular 7UP.

Can I substitute Sprite for 7UP?

Yes, you can substitute any kind of lemon-lime soda in place of the 7-Up like Sprite.

Melissa, this cake looks so inviting...I am going to make it over the weekend for sure. I would like to go for the Cake Mix version..it's faster right?..:) Just have one question...cake mix calls for Butter/Oil and Eggs. So, will we be using eggs and butter for this cake or just the cake mix plus 7up?

Nope just the mix and 7up and yep it is definitely faster.

My grandmother used to make this when we would go to her house each summer. I loved it then and it has been years since I have had 7up poundcake. We need to make this!! :)
