This was a recipe that I found and tried a week ago, I tried the original recipe tweaked it and here's my versions. I promise that if you follow my exact recipe and instructions there will be no regrets! This cake is very moist. Everyone will love it and it won't last long! (P.S. Might want to make a couple!) Don't forget to rate and leave comments. ***FOR A MORE MOIST CAKE USE 1 Tbsp. lemon extract & 1 1/2 cups 7-Up***

- Add the eggs, one at a time, blending well after each.
- Beat in the flour.
- Beat in the extracts.
- Beat in the 7-Up.
