7 Up Pound Cake

This is a really great recipe for a delicious pound cake. It is a old recipe for making this delightfully delicious cake. You can make it with regular 7 Up Soda and it is so moist and delicious. I hope you get to make this cake real soon.

Ingredients

3 sticks unsalted butter, softened

3 cups granulated sugar

5 eggs

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon lemon juice

1 cup 7-up

confectioners' sugar for dusting

How to make it

Preheat oven to 325 degrees F.

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar.

Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.

Slowly add flour

Add lemon juice and mix well

Gently fold in the 7-Up, 1/4 cup at a time

Pour mixture into greased angel food (or bundt) pan.

Bake at 325 degrees for one hour until a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean.

Transfer the cake from the oven to a wire rack. Let it cool in the pan for 15 minutes.

Unmold the cake onto the wire rack to cool completely.

Transfer to a serving platter and dust with confectioners' sugar.

I like this pound cake with cream cheese icing but its up to you if you want to add a icing to this cake or not. Its really wonderful either way.

Philly Cheesesteak Nachos

Philly Cheese-steak Nachos

Watch Man vs. Food. You see, when you watch Man vs. Food when you are as hungry as I am, you want everything you see. Strike that you need everything you see. That is exactly what happened after I saw a recent episode where he tried Philly Cheesesteak Nachos. There was no question, I needed them. So I made them. Then I ate them with reckless abandon.

I made these last night and they were so delicious. And I mean delicious. Everyone should make these and try them because they are truly one of the best appetizers you will ever eat in your life.

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 pound thinly sliced round steak

1 teaspoon kosher salt

1/2 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper

4 tablespoons butter, divided

2 green bell peppers, seeds and ribs removed, diced

1 medium yellow onion, diced

1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce

2 tablespoons flour

1 1/4 cup milk

1/2 teaspoon seasoning salt

4 cups shredded medium cheddar cheese

2 ounces cream cheese

tortilla chips

Instructions:

Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add steak and salt and pepper. Cook until steak is cooked through. Transfer to a plate.

In the same skillet, melt 2 tablespoons butter over medium heat. Once butter has melted, add bell peppers, onions and Worcestershire sauce. Cook until onions start to brown 5 - 7 minutes. Return the steak to the pan. Reduce heat to low to keep mixture warm while you prepare the cheese sauce.

Melt remaining 2 tablespoons of butter over medium heat. Whisk in flour. Cook 1 minute. Whisk in 1 cup of milk. Reduce heat. Bring milk to a simmer but do not boil. Stir in cheeses and seasoning salt. Cook until melted. If cheese sauce is too thick for your liking, add the remaining milk.

Place a couple large handfuls of tortilla chips on 4 plates. Spoon cheese sauce and steak and pepper mixture over the top. Serve immediately.
