Cupcakes are definitely my favorite type of dessert. Who doesn’t love a delicious cupcake? The light, fluffy base of the cupcake is the perfect complement to the rich, sweet frosting on top. To be honest, I never met a cupcake I didn’t love! Today, I’m sharing the recipe for a cupcake I recently created: Pomegranate 7UP Cupcakes. These delicious, easy-to-prepare cupcakes are flavored with the classic lemon lime flavor of 7UP and the sweet, tart flavor of pomegranate juice.

Last week, during my weekly trip to Stop & Stop, I picked up some 7UP bottles. We love that iconic lemon lime flavor of this soda. I also appreciate that it’s completely caffeine-free, so I can enjoy this delicious soda in the evening without worry. In addition to drinking 7UP in a glass, I’ve been really enjoying getting creative with 7UP in recipes. There are so many recipe ideas out there that use 7UP as an ingredient. It really is such a versatile ingredient. Want some recipe inspiration? Check out this page!

Today’s cupcake recipe features light, airy cupcakes flavored with 7UP soda and pomegranate juice. These cupcakes are topped with a rich, sweet frosting that’s tinted a pale pink thanks to the pomegranate juice. By adding a few pomegranate seeds on top of the frosting, you can enjoy a fun, delicious burst of tart pomegranate flavor with each bite! Take a look at these gorgeous cupcakes!

I like to pre-measure the ingredients I will use for the recipe. It makes recipe prep quick & easy. We love the great taste & versatility of 7UP. It really makes the perfect base for these cupcakes!

When combining the dry ingredients for this recipe, be sure to use a whisk to mix the ingredients fully.

When adding the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, be sure to add the wet ingredients slowly to avoid any clumps in the final mixture. The consistency of the batter should look like a thin oatmeal.

To prepare the cupcake tray, either grease the tray with butter or use cupcake liners. Fill each cupcake mold about 2/3 full, leaving enough room for the cupcakes to expand as they cook.

To prepare the pomegranate frosting, simply combine 7UP, pomegranate juice and frozen whipped topping in a mixing bowl. Combine until the mixture is a very pale pink.

To top the cupcakes with this frosting, I like to fill a zippered plastic bag with this frosting. Then, use a pair of scissors to cut a small slit in the bottom of the bag.

*TIP: To make filling this plastic bag easy & quick, use a tall glass to support the bag while filling.

After taking the cupcakes out of the oven, be sure to let them cool fully. If hot cupcakes are frosted, the frosting will melt and start dripping down.

Once the cupcakes are fully cooled, use the plastic bag to pipe the frosting onto the cupcake. Also, add some pomegranate seeds for garnish! How delicious do these look?

With 7UP in the batter and frosting, the delicious lemon-lime flavor of this dessert is crisp and fresh! 7UP is the perfect ingredient for recipes, cocktails, mocktails and so much more.

During my recent trip to Stop & Shop, I actually picked up two bottles of 7UP 2L: the regular one and the diet one. Therefore, everyone in my family can enjoy the delicious lemon-lime taste of 7UP. We have been incorporating 7UP into our recipes recently, but we also just love the refreshing taste of 7UP in a glass!

Each cupcake has the perfect balance of flavors & textures: light, fluffy cake with a sweet, tart pomegranate-infused frosting. Biting into one of the pomegranate seeds on top of one of these cupcake makes this treat truly a delight for the senses!
