Recipe is courtesy of Kardea Brown as featured on her new show, “Delicious Miss Brown” on the Food Network.


3 cups white sugar
1½ cups butter, softened
5 eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour, sifted
2 tablespoons lemon extract
1 cup lemon-lime soda (such as 7Up)


3 cups sifted confectioners’ sugar
½ cup milk
3 tablespoons lemon-lime soda
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
½ teaspoon lemon extract


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Generously grease and flour fluted Bundt pan.
  2. Beat white sugar and butter together in a bowl using an electric mixer until creamy and smooth, about 2 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, mixing well after each addition.
  3. Stir in flour, one cup at a time, blending well after each addition until batter is smooth. Stir in lemon extract. Mix lemon-lime beverage into batter and pour into the prepared pan.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean, about 1 hour 15 minutes.
  5. Whisk the confectioners’ sugar, milk, lemon-lime soda and extracts together in a bowl using an electric mixer on medium until glaze is smooth.
  6. Before taking cake out of pan, pierce holes in the cake. Pour 1⁄4 cup of glaze over cake. Flip over pan and remove cake onto a serving plate. Pour remaining glaze over the top of the cake.
