3 cups sugar
3 sticks butter or margarine
3 cups flour
1 tablespoon lemon extract
3/4 cup 7-Up soda
Cream together sugar and butter; add eggs one at a time, then add the flour and beat. Add lemon extract and 7-Up; mix well. Pour into a greased and floured 13X9-inch baking pan.
Bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes; check for doneness after 1 hour. Just a simple dusting of powdered sugar is plenty sufficient frosting for this rich, elegant beauty.
