7-Up Pound Cake
But that doesn’t mean I can’t slightly regret certain aspects of my past that, if changed, wouldn’t necessarily affect me too much. Okay, maybe they would. But here’s a list of random things I kind of regret.
(Insignificant) Things I Kind Of Regret
– Kissing a guy who’s nickname was “Tweak.” No.
– Wearing bell bottoms when I was a teenager.
– Wearing a butt-flap because my sUpEr PuNk boyfriend wore one. Butt flaps are good on no one. NO ONE.
– Dyeing my hair blue, only I didn’t bleach it properly so it turned this gnarly, swampy green and I didn’t change it.
– Getting an F in my seventh grade math class, thus resulting in summer school in a fly-infested classroom that smelled like packaged American cheese.
– Not wearing my retainer, thus resulting in a bottom-row single buck tooth. A SINGLE BUCK TOOTH. What the eff.
– Buying macarons at Whole Foods. I bought like 10 of them, resulting in paying an astronomical amount, and they all sucked. It was tragic on a whole ‘nother level.
– Applying turquoise eye shadow up to my eyebrows. MY EYEBROWS.
– Spending money on a velvet romper. Oof.
– Not yelling “I’m OUT!!” and throwing up the bird as I left my last job. It would have made for such a theatrical movie moment.
– Working at In N Out Burger for two hours. Yes, two. Because now it’s soomgawkward every time I go in there and look the stoic manager in the face.
– Reading my sister’s Seventeen magazine, once beloved by yours truly, and counting how many times the phrase “totes amaze” and my need to stab my eye coincide.
– Eating that third bag of chips or fifth cookie. Oops.
– Walking out of the salon with jack-o-lantern ORANGE hair… and paying her for it. Like, I still feel scorned.
– Opening a savings account but withdrawing the first $10 because I wanted McDonald’s.
– Not eating all of this 7-Up Cake. Because it was seriously delicious and I convinced myself one piece was enough when one piece is not enough.
Anywho. Let’s talk cake because cake. No regrets here.

Tender, dense and super moist, this buttery 7-Up Pound Cake is bright and zesty thanks to lemon and lime and fizzy soda.
- 1 & ½ cups (3 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
- 3 cups white sugar
- 5 eggs
- 2 Tbsp lemon juice
- 2 Tbsp lime juice
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 cup 7-Up Soda
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- Zest of one lime
- Zest of one lemon
- 2 cups powdered sugar
- 1 Tbsp lime juice
- 2 Tbsp 7-Up Soda
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Liberally (and I mean it!) grease and flour a bundt pan. If you think you've greased it well, grease it again. Seriously. Set aside.
- In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about 2 minutes. Add the eggs in, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Beat in the lemon and lime juice, lemon and lime zests, and vanilla extract to combine. Then, alternating with 7-Up and flour, add each gradually until a thick and smooth batter comes together.
- Pour the batter into the prepared (and very well greased and floured!) bundt pan and bake for approx. 60-70 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out mostly clean. Leave in pan for about 20 minutes before carefully inverting to a wire rack to cool completely.
- To make glaze, in a medium bowl, whisk together the glaze ingredients. Drizzle on top of the cake and allow glaze to set before cutting into slices.
