Thanks, I needed a good laugh tonight. Being from "her area" I could relate to her Pound Cake story. My mother used to make 10 bunt cake Pound Cakes at a time just for those occasions.

What is a 7 Up poundcake? Recipe please?



Classic 7 UP Pound Cake
This recipe has been around for years and, judging from its popularity, it will be around for many years to come.
1 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
3 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
5 eggs, at room temperature
3 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup 7 UP
For the Glaze:
1/4 cup 7 UP
1/2 cup sugar
Preheat oven to 300°F. Grease and flour a 10-inch tube pan.

Combine butter, shortening, sugar, vanilla and almond extract in the bowl of an electric mixer. Beat until light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour and salt, and add to butter/sugar mixture alternately with 1 cup 7 UP, beating well after each addition.

Spoon batter into prepared 10-inch tube pan, and bake for 1 hour and 45 minutes, or until cake tester comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then invert on serving plate and remove pan.

While cake is cooling, make the glaze by stirring together the 1/4 cup 7 UP and 1/2 cup sugar in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, and boil 1 to 2 minutes or until sugar is completely dissolved. Punch holes in top of warm cake with a toothpick. Spoon glaze over cake, and cool completely before serving.

Just what I needed before a rather difficult meeting later this morning.

I remember going grocery shopping with my then husband (Physician and Rhodes Scholar, intellect far larger than mine) and asked him to get a couple of oranges with thin skins. He gave me a funny look but wandered off to the citrus fruit section. I joined him about ten minutes later where he was still sorting through the oranges with a very frustrated look on his face. Of course he asked how on earth he could tell if an orange had a thin skin. When I gave him two oranges to feel, one with thicker skin and one obviously thin, he just shook his head at me. There was no point in my saying anything about juice and economics at that time, he'd probably have thrown all the oranges at me!

Rie just told me her husband watched the WHOLE thing (and he is not one to watch You Tube much)!

I have to ask you guys, WHY is it that the men are so amused by it? RICHARD? Blue?

I have to chime in.

I noticed she was tall, nice legs-she's as tall as I am!

Any who......

The story has it's 'faults'. The poor guy was used to seeing a manufacturing line for 7 up cakes and took the list to heart.

I thought it was funny, the poor dude probably cares more for badmiton than paying attention to what his wife wanted.:D


I HEARD EVERY word my GF said to me. I didn't understand WHY, But I heard them?:o

I laughed for two reasons.

1. Its a way to find the funny in death.

2. Because I am the opposite. I buy what I need, even if it is a little more expensive.

THe only time I buy more then I need is when Im going camping, dont want to run out of red meat or booze.

The husband wasn't so dumb. Do you think men enjoy shopping. Now he is
excused from future grocery runs.:D

I wouldn't bet on that! :rolleyes:

He can just expect a much more DETAILED note the next time!
Possibly with footnotes and/or attachments.

Bacon attracts bears the fastest of all the tasty meats.

I don't reckon those bears in Alaska are any fun to encounter camping...you are braver than me, I always make sure I camp on the coast here in California where the worst thing after my food is the racoons.

Ive been up close and personal with bears twice. They stink and arent allways easy to spot where we go rafting/camping.
