Charlene's 7 up Pound Cake

"My mother has been making this cake since I was a little girl and now I make it too. I receive many requests for it at work and for family parties. It is moist and dense. When changing the oven temperature from 350* to 300*, open the oven door briefly to allow some heat to escape so the oven will adjust more quickly to the lower temp. As an added treat, you can sprinkle it with confectioner's sugar or drizzle w/ a lemon glaze, however it is very yummy as is. My dad loves it the next day toasted in the toaster and spread with some butter."
