I make this and it is delicious.  My question is: could I change it by substituting the soda with another liquid (milk, etc?) and leaving out the llemon extract?  In other words, changing the flavor.  I often put 2T brandy in a pound cake (as well as vanilla) and it is a great flavoring.

Re: Ree's 7-Up Pound Cake

[ Edited ]

I have made this recipe for an overnight rum pound cake.  It uses milk as the liquid:

 

Cake:

2 cups flour

1 1/2 cups sugar

3.4-oz box instant vanilla pudding mix

2 tsp baking powder

3/4 tsp salt

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup vegetable oil

1/2 cup milk

4 eggs

1/2 cup rum

2 tsp vanilla

 

Syrup:

1/4 cup butter

2 tbsp water

1/2 cup sugar

1/8 tsp salt

1//4 cup rum

1/4 tsp vanilla

 

Mix flour, sugar, pudding mix, baking powder, salt, butter, and oil on medium speed with electric mixer until sandy-looking.  Beat in milk.  Beat in eggs one at a time.  

Stir in rum and vanilla.

Pour batter into oil-sprayed Bundt pan.  Bake at 325 degrees for 50-60 minutes until wood skewer comes out clean.  Cool in pan.

Bring butter, water, sugar, salt, and rum to a rapid boil, then reduce to simmer until slightly thickened, about 7 minutes.  Stir in vanilla off heat.

Poke holes all over cake with wooden skewer.  Pour syrup over cake 1/4 cup at a time, letting it soak in between pourings.

Loosely cover pan with plastic wrap and let sit overnight.  To serve, loosen edges of cake (I use a silicone spatula) and turn onto serving plate.

I have a friend that puts 7 up in any type of cake she makes. I had never heard of doing so until I met her.

IMO, it would probably bake and taste ok with any liquid you wanted, however, if it was me, I would substitute unflavored carbonated water for the 7UP.  

 

7UP is just flavored carbonated water.

With a lot of added sweetness!  Carbonated water is just bubbly water.
