Easy Cake Recipes: 7-Up Cake…My Dad’s Favorite Dessert

If I had to describe the recipes I share here in one word it would be EASY. When it comes to baking, I make no exceptions. I am always on the lookout for easy cake recipes, and luckily, I’ve found several of them. One of the easiest (and yummiest!) ones I make has only 5 ingredients. It’s also one of my favorite go-to easy cake recipes and happens to be my Dad’s favorite: 7-Up Cake.

Don’t get me wrong, I love to cook! I wish I had time to spend all day in the kitchen, I really do! But let’s be honest…I have 3 kids and if I have to stand at the stove and stir a roux for 20 minutes to make a Chicken & Sausage Etouffee recipe my husband wants to try? I’m probably never going to make rarely going to make the recipe. Give me easy & I’m in.

I’ve shared plenty of easy cake recipes with you here…my favorite cake of all time, Dump Cake recipe, my favorite crowd pleaser easy cake recipe for the Holy Cow Cake, and who could forget the easy cake recipe my mom gave me at my bridal shower? But there’s a reason my Dad loves 7-Up cake, it’s the moistest, lightest cake you’ll ever eat. Bonus? It will take you a total of 5 minutes to prepare!
