BE sure and watch this YouTube comedy about this Cake…titled “Don’t send a man to the grocery store!”
It’s hysterical and it really is about the following cake!

1 c oleo (2 sticks) [OR 1 c butter]
½ c shortening or oil
3 c sugar
5 eggs
3 c flour
7 oz. (3/4 cup) 7-up or Sprite
1 t lemon extract and 1 t almond extract
*OR just use 2 t lemon extract
1 t vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 325°.
Cream oleo and shortening with sugar.
Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Measure 7-up and add extracts and butter flavoring to it.
Add flour, 1 cup at a time; then add liquid slowly.
Bake in greased 10” tube or bundt pan for 1 hr & 15 minutes or until toothpick can be inserted in cake come out clean (NOT gooey.)
COOL.  Remove cake from pan and leave sitting out in open UNCOVERED for 2-3 hours so it will get crusty on edges.
Cover cake AFTER it is totally COLD.

To make into Blueberry Coffeecake:
1 lg can blueberries (16 oz or so)
(About 1 cup can be canned, frozen or fresh.)
If berries are not sweetened, pour into container with juice and add sugar or sweetner and let sit overnight in frig.
Drain off juice before gently adding to 7-up cake batter above

Crumb Topping:
¼ c margarine
½ c flour
½ c brown sugar
1 t cinnamon
Combine flour & sugar; but in margarine with pastry cutter or mixer til crumbly.
[Some recipes say melt butter and stir in remaining topping ingredients]
Sprinkle crumbs over batter.


1plain yellow cake mix (not pudding) **see my observations below
[Duncan Hines Butter Recipe Cake Mix works well.]
1 small box instant vanilla pudding
½ c water
1 c sour cream
½ c oil
1 bar German Chocolate, grated (or 4 oz. Hershey bar, grated)
4 eggs
1 c chocolate chips
1 t vanilla

Preheat oven to 350°
Mix all ingredients, adding chocolates last.
Pour into greased and floured tube or bundt pan
Bake at 350° for 45-50 min.
**Not good with white cake mix.
If you use pudding mix, it will be VERY moist, but works out OK too.
