Seven 1970′s Recipes, Recipe 2: 7-Up Cake

Mom made this cake one year for my elementary school’s “Lawn Fete” and I really wanted it.  I remember participating in the cake walk multiple times hoping to win it back.  In the end, I went home with two cakes.  One of them was indeed the cake my mom had taken to the school.   She could not believe it.  In fact, I don’t remember her being happy about it.

    Finally…I found the 7-Up Cake recipe my husband adored when we were newly weds.

    I had lost my cards for several favorite recipes from the 1970’s and am thrilled to find a site that categorizes them by “eras”.

    • So glad I could help, Tami! I plan on a few more “era” cooking posts later this year…the 60’s and the 80’s. I hope you’ll visit again:)

    can u make this cake in 2 layers only

    • Yes…in fact, that is the way I usually make it. I usually use pans that are about 10 inches in diameter. I have also used 8 inch pans and not used all of the batter.

  3. Do you use canned coconut flakes or a bag of shredded coconut for your frosting?

    • I use shredded coconut from a bag, but I remember my mom using coconut from a can in the recipe many years ago when coconut was not as readily available in bags.

    Made this for Thanksgiving after not having made in 5 years; I don’t think my layers were very high. I made 3 but I didn’t think they were supposed to be thinish..the cake didn’t look as high as I remembered. Wonder what I did incorrectly?
