Cheating on Nanna

I bake quite a bit, and have typically relied on my Nanna's old cook books for (almost) never fail recipes that have that warm and cozy comfort food flavour...lately, though, I've been cheating on Nanna with The Pioneer Woman!!!  I have several cakes to whip up over the next few days ( cat cake, red hat cake, Assiversary Cake, Rainbow Barbie cake, and a Hamburger cake) and figured I'd try a new recipe.  O...M...G!!!  Who knew that something that sounded as kooky as a "7up pound cake" would be soooo to die for!!  Ree was totally right when she said it's soo good it must be destroyed!  I encourage everyone to try it!!  Fair warning, though, you won't be able to stop!

*Update**  I got the funkiest call this morning from a friend, advising me on the un-naturalness of "butter flavouring" - I just made another cake - swapped butter for margerine and "butter flavouring" for "Almond Extract"...I'll let you know how it goes...

My Great Aunt used to make 7Up pound cake - and yes, it's to die for! Also, that was the kind of cake we had as a wedding cake - and one year later, the top later (it had been frozen!) tasted as good as it did on our wedding day!
