  • 8 oz/227 g reduced-fat whipped topping
  • Fresh raspberries for garnish, if available
Prepare pound cake mix per package directions, adding extracts to the batter.  Bake per instructions and cool completely.  Prepare vanilla pie filling per package directions and let cool.  Cut pound cake into 1/2 - 3/4 inch (12-18 mm) slices and place one slice on each plate.  Drizzle each slice with 1 tbsp/15 ml juice, top with raspberries, and sprinkle with 1/2 tsp/2.5 ml sugar.  Gently stir 1 cup/250 ml whipped topping into pudding and spoon mixture over raspberries.  Top with remaining whipped topping.  Refrigerate until served.  Just before serving, garnish with fresh berries.

Preheat grill to medium heat.  Combine all burger ingredients in a large bowl and form into 8 patties about 3/4 inch/20 mm thick.  Grill about 15 minutes, turning once, or until desired doneness is reached.  Serve on buns with topping (or offer Watkins Steak Sauce for guests who don't want mayonnaise.)
