Reunion Coffee Cake with Peaches Recipe

I've been making this Reunion Coffee Cake from my Baylor Cookbook for years.  It's not very healthy, but it tastes fantastic.  You can use any type of fruit filling you want (we have also tried apple) but peach is my favorite.

Ingredients:
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup margarine (or butter), softened
1/2 cup shortening
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp almond extract
1 tsp butter flavoring
4 eggs
3 cups flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 (21 ounce) can peach, cherry, apple or blueberry pie filling
1 cup powdered sugar
1-2 tbsp. milk

Blend first 7 ingredients in large mixing bowl on low speed.  Beat for 3 minutes on high.  Gradually stir in flour, baking powder, and salt.  Spread 1/2 of batter in lightly greased 9x13 inch pan.  Place fruit filling by tablespoons over batter.  Spoon remaining 1/2 of batter on top of pie filling.  Bake at 350* for 30 minutes.  Mix powdered sugar and milk, drizzle over cake once it has cooled. 

It makes a lot, but trust me, it won't stick around for long!

Might be good with blackberries. I can tell that I shouldn't get near it as it would disappear.
