Prep Time: 20 minutes
Cook Time: 45 minutes
Total Time: 1 hour, 5 minutes
Yield: 36 to 48 servings
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1-1/2 cups sugar
- 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, softened
- 1/2 cup butter-flavored solid vegetable shortening
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 teaspoon almond extract
- 4 large eggs
- 2 cups white chocolate chips
- 1 can (21 ounces) more fruit blueberry pie filling
- 1 cup powdered sugar
- 2 Tablespoons cream cheese, at room temperature
- 1 to 2 Tablespoons heavy cream or milk
In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, and salt. Set aside.
Beat sugar, butter, shortening, vanilla, almond extract, and eggs in large bowl on low speed, scraping bowl constantly. Increase to high speed and beat an additional 3 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally. Stir in flour mixture by hand, mixing only until combined. Do not over-mix. A few lumps are fine.
Spread 2/3 of the batter in pan. Sprinkle white chocolate chips evenly over batter. Carefully spoon out and spread blueberry filling over chips. Drop remaining coffeecake batter by tablespoonsful onto pie filling. (There will be gaps.)
Bake about 40 to 45 minutes, or until batter begins to turn golden. Let rest about 10 minutes while you make the glaze. Drizzle glaze over warm coffee cake. Serve warm or let stand until cool. Store in a covered container.
For the glaze, whisk cream cheese until smooth. Stir in powdered sugar, adding cream a little at a time until you reach a drizzling consistency. Use a zip-top baggie with a tiny corner cut off as a pastry bag and drizzle a wiggly pattern over the top of the coffeecake.
