Raspberry coffeecake

I got this recipe from Heather White's blog, and it is oh so yummy! Thanks Heather!

1 1/2 C. sugar
1/2 C. shortening
1/2 C. butter or margarine
1 tsp. vanilla
4 eggs
1 tsp. almond extract
3 C. flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 can raspberry pie filling (any flavor pie filling will work)

Mix first 8 ingredients. Spray 9x13 pan with cooking spray. Press 2/3 of batter into bottom of pan. Spread pie filling evenly over batter. Dollop the rest of the batter over the top. (It's pretty sticky, so I take little balls of it, smash it flat like a pancake and then lay it on top. I do this over the entire surface so that it covers more space than just dropping little drops here and there.) Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes. Drizzle runny icing over the top as soon as it comes out of the oven. (To make icing, mix 3 C. powdered sugar, 1 cube margarine (melted), 1 tsp. vanilla & milk - prepare it RUNNY so that it pours easily over the top of your coffeecake.)
