to press the filling through the sieve.
- 1 box Betty Crocker SuperMoist lemon cake mix
- 1 1/3 cups buttermilk*

- 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
- 3 eggs
- 2 cups raspberry pie filling (from 21-ounce can)
- 1 1/2 cups whipping cream
- Fresh raspberries, if desired
- Mint leaves, if desired
* If you don't have buttermilk on hand, substitute water when making the cake
- Heat oven to 350 degrees F (325 degrees F for dark or nonstick pans). Grease
bottoms only of two 8- or 9-inch round cake pans with shortening or cooking spray.

mixer on low speed 30 seconds. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Pour into pans.

pie filling over cake layer to within 1/4 inch of edge. Top with second layer, rounded side up.

until soft peaks form. Beat in remaining 1 1/4 cups pie filling on low speed just
