So, let’s preheat the oven, gather our ingredients, and dive into the world of homemade baking with our “Refreshing Lemon Pound Cake”!


  • 1 1/2 cups of softened Butter
  • 3 cups of Sugar
  • 5 large Eggs
  • 1 teaspoon of Vanilla Extract
  • 2 teaspoons of Almond (or Lemon) Extract
  • 3 cups of All-purpose Flour
  • 1 cup of Lemon-Lime Soda (Sprite, 7-UP, or Sierra Mist)


1. Preheat the Oven: Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (175 degrees Celsius).

2. Creaming the Butter: In a mixing bowl, cream the softened butter until it’s smooth and fluffy.

3. Gradually Add Sugar: Add the sugar, one cup at a time, ensuring you beat for a minute after each addition. Scrape the sides of the bowl after each sugar addition.

4. Beat Thoroughly: Once all the sugar is added, continue to beat the mixture for an additional 4 minutes to achieve a light and fluffy texture.

5. Add Eggs: Add the eggs one at a time, mixing well after each addition.

6. Flavorful Enhancements: Stir in the vanilla and almond (or lemon) extracts, making sure they are well incorporated into the batter.

7. Incorporate the Dry Ingredients: Gradually add the all-purpose flour and lemon-lime soda alternately. Begin and end with the flour, and be sure to mix well after each addition. Don’t forget to scrape down the sides of the bowl to ensure an even consistency.

8. Preparing the Pan: Grease a Bundt pan generously to prevent sticking.

9. Baking Time: Pour the cake batter into the greased Bundt pan. Bake in the preheated oven for approximately 1 hour to 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until the cake is firm and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.

Note: If you choose to use loaf pans, this recipe will yield enough batter for two pans. In that case, bake for 50-60 minutes until the cake is firm.

This delightful Lemon Pound Cake is perfect for any occasion, offering a zesty and refreshing flavor that will please your taste buds! Enjoy your baking journey.
