Fruit Swirl Coffee Cake

Bart received this recipe from a coworker after she brought some in for a potluck. He made it for us just the other day. He said it was very easy to make, and we all loved how delicious it was!

1 ½ cups sugar
½ cup shortening
½ cup butter, softened
1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
¼ teaspoon almond extract
4 eggs
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 can cherry pie filling, or other flavor of your choice (Bart used blackberry)
Glaze (below)

Blend sugar, butter, shortening, baking powder, vanilla, almond extract, and eggs on low speed, then beat 3 minutes on high speed. Stir in flour. Spread two-thirds of batter in a 15 x 10-inch jelly roll pan. Spread pie filling over batter. Drop remaining batter by spoonfuls on top of pie filling. Bake 25 to 35 minutes at 350°F. (until top is browned). While warm, drizzle with glaze.

Glaze: Mix 1 cup confectioners’ sugar, 1 to 2 tablespoons milk, and 1 teaspoon vanilla until desired consistency is reached and mixture is smooth.
