Things you’ll need

  • Bundt Pan – This is the one I have. If I had more cupboard space, I’d have lots of them because there are so many pretty ones & you know I love me a bundt cake.
  • Hand Mixer – A turn to my hand mixer way more than my stand mixer, even though I love it.
  • Mixing Bowl – I love these mixing bowls. They’re such a nice quality and the grippy bottoms are helpful.


Below is a list of the ingredients you’ll need to gather to make this recipe.Scroll all the way down for the full recipe card.

  • Butter – Unsalted, softened to room temperature.
  • Sugar – Granulated white sugar.
  • Vanilla – Try to opt for pure vanilla extract and a decent brand even though I know it’s super pricey right now.
  • Eggs – Large eggs.
  • Flour – White, all purpose flour.
  • Cocoa Powder – Pick a good quality unsweetened cocoa powder.
  • 7Up – Adding pop (soda?) to baked goods makes them fluffy and moist.
  • Chocolate Chips – I like Ghirardelli baking chips for all my chocolate chip needs.

How to make a Chocolate 7 Up Cake

  1. First, preheat your oven to 350 degrees and generously grease (I use non-stick spray) a bundt pan and lightly flour it. If you don’t want to see the flour, you can also use cocoa powder.
  2. Then, in a mixing bowl, cream the butter with a hand mixer until smooth. Add in the sugar and vanilla and beat until light & fluffy.
  3. One at a time, add in the eggs, beating well after each addition.
  4. Stir in the flour and cocoa powder until fully blended, then stir in the 7Up.
  5. Fold in the chocolate chips and then spoon the batter into the prepared pan.

  1. Bake for 70 minutes then check it. If a toothpick inserted into the cake comes out clean, it’s done. Mine usually takes 80 minutes.
  2. Once done, cool in the pan for 10 minutes then flip and finish cooling.

How to store leftovers

Leftover cake should be tightly wrapped or kept in an airtight container at room temperature for up to a week.

Can I freeze it?

Leftovers can be frozen. Wrap them tightly in plastic wrap, then foil, and drop them into a freezer bag.

They’ll keep for up to 3 months. Place on the counter to thaw at room temperature when ready to enjoy.

What to serve with it

Top it with ice cream, or chocolate sauce, or just plain!

Serve this chocolate bundt cake after a dinner of buffalo ranch chicken wraps and .


How many servings are in a standard bundt cake?

There are usually 16 decent sized slices in a standard bundt cake.

How to keep the chocolate chips from sinking

If you notice your chocolate chips sinking to the bottom of the cake, I have a tip for you.

Before mixing the chocolate chips into the cake batter, pour them into a bowl, sprinkle them with a teaspoon of cocoa powder, and then mix them into the batter.

Same trick works with sugar and blueberries in muffins.
