If you’re a fan of lemon-flavored desserts, you have to check out this recipe for a lemony 7Up Pound Cake. Yep, it incorporates the lemon-lime soda and it’s pretty simple to make. There are several variations of this recipe available on the internet, so you can mix and match until you find the combination that’s perfect for you.

This version from Culinary Hill uses a boxed mix, so it’s super simple. It’s made in a bundt pan and topped with a divine lemon glaze that makes it look fancier than it really is. The blog’s author, Meggan Hill, says you can really use any lemon-lime soda of your choosing, so Sprite and Sierra Mist would work as well.

Another version of this cake comes from All Things Mamma. This recipe relies on a boxed mix as well, but it incorporates a little something extra that the blogger promises will transform all baked goods you make from a box. She also says you could try making this cake with Cherry 7Up but notes that she hasn’t tried it yet. That does sound like a yummy twist!

If lemon-lime is not your flavor of choice, there are other soda-based treats out there that might be more appealing, including root beer float-inspired desserts such as this pie by A Kitchen Addiction. Serve with a side of vanilla ice cream to get the true float experience.

If you’re more of a Coke person, how about this Coca-Cola chocolate cake from Brown Eyed Baker? It uses a full can of Coke in both the batter and the frosting. Although this cake is definitely high in sugar, it looks delicious for when you’re looking to indulge a little.

Coca-Cola also offers a recipe for cake using the soda on its website, and it looks just as yummy.
