A ShoeBox Recipe

This old ShoeBox Recipe is an oldie from the past.
I remember it being popular in the Sixties and Seventies. 
It uses part of a Seven-Up Soft drink as an ingredient, but any carbonated Lemon/Lime flavored soft drink will do in the recipe.
It is easy to make and tastes great.


3              cups       Sugar
1/2           lb.           Butter
1/2          cup         Crisco
5             large       Eggs, mixed
3             cups       Flour, plain
1             tbs.        Baking Powder
1             tsp.        Vanilla flavoring
1             tsp.        Lemon flavoring
3/4         cup         Seven-Up Soda


1.       Cream the Butter, Crisco and Sugar together for two minutes.
2.       Add the Eggs, Flour, Baking Powder and flavorings to the mixture one at a time while stirring constantly, until well blended.
3.       Fold in the Seven-Up.
4.       Pour the mixture into a well-buttered cake pan.
5.       Bake in a preheated 325F oven for 1-1/4 hours, or until done (using toothpick method)
6.       Remove from the oven and let cool before removing from the pan.

NOTE: Toothpick method= Stick a toothpick into the center of the cake and if there is cake mix stuck to the toothpick, then the Cake is not done.
