Fruit Swirl Coffeecake
1-1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons vanilla
3 cups flour
1 can fruit pie filling, any flavor
1 cup powdered sugar
1-2 Tablespoons milk
Add sugar, butter, shortening, baking powder, vanilla, and eggs to medium bowl.
Mix on low until blended.
Then on high for 3 minutes.
Mix just until combined.
Spread 2/3 of the batter into a greased 10x15" cookie sheet that has sides (also known as a jelly roll pan)
Dump on pie filling. My mom always makes cherry but I prefer apple!
Spread as best you can.
Drop remaining batter by tablespoons over top of filling.
Bake at 350 degrees for 35-45 minutes or until toothpick inserted in cake area comes out clean. Cake should be golden brown. Careful not to overcook!
Mix powdered sugar and milk until smooth. Start off with 1 tablespoon of milk and then add 1/2 tablespoon at a time until it is runny but not too runny. This particular day I only needed 1-1/2 T.
Drizzle over top of coffeecake while cake is still warm. Cut and serve. I prefer mine warm but it is definitely still good at room temp!
Strawberry filling is pretty delicious too!
