Baked goods made with soft drinks can be traced back to the 1930s and 1940s, according to food expert Lynne Olver. On her website, Food Timeline, she cited early recipes like Ginger Ale Icebox Cake and Raisin Cake Made With Pepsi-Cola. Soda has popped up in all sorts of recipes, with 7UP cake being one of the most famous. The effervescence of 7UP produces a lighter crumb in pound cakes made from scratch and gives packaged cake mix a mild lemon flavor. —Toni Tipton-Martin
