I just made this cake last night and upon reading some of the reviews, I changed a few things:
1) I decreased the sugar to 2 1/2 cups and it was definitely sweet enough
2) I added 2 tsps vanilla extract
3) I added the zest of one lemon
4) I added 1 tsp of baking soda to the flour
5) I increased the 7UP to 1 cup
I did beat the sugar and butter (at room temp) for the recommended 20 minutes- set the timer up and left my stand mixer do the job :) while I was getting all of my other ingredients out and the pan greased and floured.
I also alternated adding the flour and the 7UP (I actually used Sprite), beginning and ending with the flour. I made sure not to overbeat, just mix to incorporate.
I ended up making 24 cupcakes and one regular size bread loaf pan out of this cake recipe, decreasing the time in the oven. Everything turned out extremely moist and absolutely delicious! My whole family loved this recipe!
