Cherry Swirl Coffee Cake

I was looking for a Bisquick Coffee Cake recipe this morning and this one looked so yummy for a grey and rainy morning.  I used the Aldi's Baking Mix and I halved the recipe.  I didn't think about halving the 21 ounce can of cherries and it turned out like cobbler  but it is so good.  You could use any can of pie filling too!

Cherry Swirl Coffee Cake  

4  cups Original Bisquick® mix

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/4 cup butter or margarine, melted

1/2 cup milk

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 teaspoon almond extract

3 eggs

1 can (21 oz) cherry pie filling


1 cup powdered sugar

1 to 2 tablespoons milk

Heat oven to 350°F. Grease bottom and sides of 1 (15x10x1-inch) pan or 2 (9-inch) square pans with shortening or cooking spray. In large bowl, stir all coffee cake ingredients except pie filling; beat vigorously with spoon 30 seconds.

Spread two-thirds of the batter (about 2 1/2 cups) in 15x10-inch pan or one-third of the batter (about 1 1/4 cups) in each square pan. Spread pie filling over batter (filling may not cover batter completely). Drop remaining batter by tablespoonfuls onto pie filling. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until light brown.
Meanwhile, in small bowl, stir glaze ingredients until smooth and thin enough to drizzle. Drizzle glaze over warm coffee cake. Serve warm or cool.
