lemon 7 up bundt cake recipe with icing

I love bundt cakes. They are just about the perfect dessert for any gathering with family and friends. They are easy to make, they can be made a day ahead, and they feed a crowd. This lemon 7 UP bundt cake recipe is so good and super moist. With only 5 ingredients, this cake takes about 10 minutes from start to in the oven. The other thing I like about this cake is that it bakes in just 40 minutes. Most bundt cakes take about an hour and sometimes they get a tad too brown on the outside. Not this cake…it baked evenly and comes out of the oven golden and beautiful.

  • 1 box yellow cake mix
  • 1 small box lemon instant pudding
  • 3/4 cup canola oil
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup 7 Up Diet or Regular


  • 1 cup Powdered Sugar
  • 2 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • zest of one lemon if desired


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
  • Combine all ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Mix well.
  • Pour into prepared bundt pan.
  • Bake for 40 minutes or until a knife inserted in center comes out clean.
  • Cool for 10 minutes and then turn out onto cooling rack.
  • Prepare the glaze by mixing all ingredients with a large spoon. Use more lemon juice for a thinner glaze, less for a thicker glaze.
  • Pour over cooled cake.
  • A dusting of powdered sugar is a good substitute for the glaze.

Lemon 7 Up Bundt Cake Recipe Tips

  • I made a quick glaze for a cake topping, which by the way is amazing, but a dusting of powdered sugar is a quicker option.
  • This recipe would also make great cupcakes/muffins. Just use a large cookie scoop and fill the vessels of a muffin tin almost to the rim. (Make sure to spray the muffin pan or use liners.) Bake at 350 degrees F for 20 – 25 minutes, or until a pick inserted in the center of a muffin comes out clean. 
  • If you don’t have 7 Up, it’s fine to substitute any soda that is light-colored, like ginger ale or Sprite.
  • Easy variations:
    • Strawberry cake mix and strawberry creme pudding.
    • White cake mix and french vanilla pudding.
    • White or yellow cake mix and banana pudding.

  1. I just made this recipe for about the 15th time at my older teen son’s request. It’s a perfect treat for those of us who love sweet, but not too sweet. Plus due to the cake & lemon mixes, I can throw it together at almost any time. That’s a big help in a house where food disappears as quickly as I make it. I love it with a cup of tea in the evening, and my husband’s been known to sneak a slice of it as a breakfast before work. All around great recipe!

  2. I made the Lemonade Icebox cake and took it to the ‘Threaders’. I was asked for the recipe many times. I loved it also. Thanks

    1. So glad you liked it…it ranks right up there as one of my favorite icebox cakes!

  6. I’m quite sure I have made your 7Up Pound cake before but just in case the recipe didn’t get transferred in my move, I’m going to copy again. Because of your wonderful bundt cake recipes, I decided to only bring a new bundt pan to my apartment. Who needs all those assorted cake pans when Anne’s bundt cake recipes are so good. Thank you again.

  10. I keep trying to print a copy of the 7 Up Lemon Bundt Cake but it won’t print – please help!!! Thanks Pat

    1. Hi Pat…I’m sorry for the trouble! I just tested it from my end and it worked well. Sometimes it’s a browser issue and not a blog issue. If you clear your browser cache and restart your computer I think that might fix the problem. Also, Google Chromes works best when viewing Wordpress sites. Please let me know if you are still having problems and I’ll think of something else!

  11. I am looking forward to making this cake. I have tried your other recipes and they turned out very well. I have great confidence in everything you share. Wonderful blog.

  12. I have everything to make this scrumptious cake ! Great for a cold snowy day. We didn’t get a lot
    of snow, but hope it is a blanket for the tulips and daffodils already up!

  20. I have printed that lemon cake recipe – it looks delicious and easy! As a “dish” person, I would have to choose the faience, but as a quilter and sewer, I’m intrigued with the antique buttons as well! Thanks for this terrific opportunity!

  21. Wow, that cake looks so moist and delicious. Love the French posters and the silver salt and peper shakers on Claudia’s website. Such beautiful things!

  23. I have visited Claudia’s shop many times. I purchased a medallion for a holiday gift. I can tell you her service was quick and thoughtful. The packaging was wonderful and she include a personal note which I thought was a nice touch. I have no reservations purchasing from her again and her things are gorgeous!! I’d love to win that gift card!! So many beautiful things – so little cash :-)
