1 c. butter, softened
1/2 c. shortening or margarine
3 c. sugar
1/2 tsp. almond extract
1 tsp. vanilla extract
5 eggs
3 c. flour
1/2 tsp. salt
1 c. 7-Up or Sprite


1/2 c. sugar
1/4 c. 7-Up or Sprite

Preheat oven to 300 F. Grease and flour a 10-inch tube pan or loaf pan. Combine butter, shortening, sugar, almond extract and vanilla in a bowl. Beat until light and fluffy - about 5 minutes. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

In a separate bowl, combine the flour and salt, and add to butter/sugar mixture alternately with 1 cup of 7-Up, beating well after each addition. Spoon batter into prepared 10-inch tube pan or loaf pan, and bake for 1 hour and 45 minutes, or until cake tester comes out clean. Cool in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes, then invert on a serving plate and remove the pan.

While cake is cooling, make the glaze by stirring together the sugar and 7-Up in a saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat and boil 1-2 minutes or until sugar is completely dissolved. Spoon or pour glaze over cake and cool completely before serving.
