7-UP Cake

TSLC7upCake1

This 7-Up Cake is delicious and the pineapple topping just makes it even better!  You could use any frosting you like on this cake but my family enjoys the pineapple along with the lemon flavor.

1 lemon cake mix (I used Duncan Hines 16.5 ounce Lemon Supreme Signature Cake Mix)

1  (3.4 ounce) Jello Instant Lemon Pudding

4 eggs

1 1/4 cups 7-up or any lemon lime drink

3/4 cup vegetable oil

Combine all ingredients and mix well with mixer.  Spray 2 (8 inch) cake pans and divide batter.  Bake in preheated 325 degree oven for 35-40 minutes testing for doneness as ovens vary.  Let cool and frost with your favorite frosting or the pineapple filling recipe below.  Enjoy!

Pineapple Filling for 7-Up Cake

1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple, undrained

1 stick butter or margarine or 8 tablespoons or 1/2 cup

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1 1/2 cups coconut

Mix pineapple, butter, sugar, eggs and flour together.  Cook on medium heat until thickens. (I bring this to a low boil, turn down and cook about five minutes stirring often).   Remove and add coconut.  Let cool and spread between cooled cake layers and on top of cake.

Note:  This cake should be refrigerated.

  1. I make this cake quite often, always in a bundt pan and never any filling or frosting, just a dusting of powdered sugar. It goes very fast, everyone loves it because it is so moist and delicious.

  2. I agree that you need to be very careful when you bake this cake or any cake as they will fall if you jar or shake them..

  3. Hello! It is peach and zucchini season in our neighborhood! PLEASE GIVE US A GOOD PEACH COBBLER RECIPE AND A GREAT ZUCCHINI BREAD RECIPE! PLEASE!!! ♡♡♡♡

  4. My grandma used to make this but she would leave it in refrigerator for 24 hours before eating it…it was so yummy.

  5. I have found cakes deflate when not baked completely. I’ve made this several times-SO moist. No lemon cake mix, so used white and added homemade lemon curd for extreme flavor and a bit of zing! Thanks SO much for sharing!

  6. Can you make this cake in a budnt pan

  7. Thanks for your reply, although the cake fell, it was good. It is almost all gone. I gave some to a friend, she thought it was delicious. Maybe I over beat it. Thanks!

  8. I have made this cake several times and have always gotten cpmpliments on it. I’ve shared the link with a few friends via facebook when they wanted the recipe.

  9. Would toasted coconut work?

  10. I made it tonight…very yummy. Wife and the kids loved it too. It’s probably the 10th different recipe from your site I have used. Most of them have worked, only a couple didn’t. This one was spot on. Thanks!

  11. Could I use a pound cake pan

  12. My Mom made this cake, only she put the pineapple filling between the layers and made seven minute white frosting on the outside. This cake was the bottom tier of my wedding cake.

  13. Can you tell me if removing the coconut changes anything as far as these recipes? I’m allergic but these cales all look so good!

  14. Loved this cake! I can’t wait to make again this summer. I was a little surprised how long it took for the frosting to thickened. But overall, I found the recipe simple and easy to follow.

  15. Can anyone advise on the cooking time if I use a 13×9 pan?
    Thanks!!

    • I have always done the layers, but try it in the 13×9 and if you have too much batter make a thin round and Icing it , I am sure it wont go to waste!

  16. Just made this cake, YUM! I seldom bake cakes, but the pairing of lemon, pineapple, and coconut sounded so good I had to try and it didn’t disappoint.

  17. How would you make this without lemon cake mix. We dont have in stores where I live

    • U would have to make it from scratch and what i would do is add some crushed pinneapple into the batter even a dash of lemon flavored jello mix sprinkled in it deffinately use 3eggs and 1 1/2c veg oil that would really make it a good cake i think i make scratch cakes veg oil n eggs is a major lol hope i helped and that iis great (;

    • Duncan hines pineapple supreme

  18. You can replace the butter in the cake with applesauce. It works great. You can also add a box of instant lemon pudding to the pineaple including tne juice then tne cool whip for delicious frosting. I’ve done this for years You can use sugar free puddings in the cake and frosting but sugar free cool whip doesn’t hell well for some reason ?

  19. I have a small oven dose anyone know if I could use 13 in cake pan

  20. This looks so yummy I love coconut but don’t like pineapple what can I use instead?

  21. I make this cake I use Duncan hines yellow cake & instant lemon jello then is not so lemony.

  22. Man did this cake turn out good! I made this cake for my brother-in-laws’ birthdays and it was really moist and just delicious. It has a strong lemon flavor. When the cake was done I actually poured about 1/2 cup of 7-Up around the edges of the cake and a little in the middle to make sure it was extra moist and it worked great. Oh, and I couldn’t find the instant lemon pudding so I just used the cook and serve kind right out the box

    I didn’t use the topping in this recipe; instead I used heavy whipping cream with a little confectioners sugar and crushed pineapple. It was great

  23. Does this cake need to be stored in the fridge ?

  24. alternate filling: 1 can of mandarin oranges drained, 1 container CoolWhip, 1 small package of vanilla pudding (I’ve used sugarless before). Whip together and fill/frost!

  25. Tried this and it was wonderful!!!! My family loved it. Thanks for the great recipe.

  26. I make this cake all the time using Mountain Dew and pineapple cake mix. So you could use pineapple instead of coconut. I just use powdered sugar and a little mt.dew to mix with it and drizzle it over cake. Big hit every time!

  27. My oh my oh my! This cake looks heavenly. I’ve made a 7-up Cake, but that frosting looks like a perfect topping for this yummy treat. You do have the bestest recipes Judy. Thanks so much for sharing. Wish I could have a big piece, sitting alongside you, with some sweet tea. M-M-M! =)

  28. Can you use a 9×13 pan? This sounds delish!!! :)

  29. that sounds awesome, but what if you don’t like coconut just leave it out? Or is there another substitute?

    • There is no coconut in the cake itself just the frosting. I don’t know what you could substitute in the frosting but you can use any frosting on this cake.

    • You could make the filling with no coconut and use it between the layers only, then use a buttercream (or your fav frosting) on the top…..

      • I I have made this cake,,but for filling and frosting,,,I use a tub of Cool Whip and mix in a can of well drained pineapple,,,very yummy !!

  30. We usually make this using Mountain Dew with no filling or frosting while using a Bundt pan. For those who don’t want the extra sugar and calories, this is still a great moist lemony cake. Thanks for all your posts.
