Ingredients

Coffee Cake
1/4 cup warm water (100° to 110F)
1 (2-1/4 tsp.) envelope Fleischmann's® Traditional Yeast
3 to 3-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons butter OR margarine, melted
1 egg
Apricot Filling
1 cup diced, dried apricots
3/4 cup sugar
3 cups water, divided
2 tablespoons Fleischmann's® Corn Starch
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup toasted, chopped almonds

Instructions

Coffee Cake:


Combine water and yeast in a small bowl; let rest 5 minutes. Combine 1 cup flour, sugar and salt in a large mixer bowl. Add yeast mixture, sour cream, butter and egg. Beat on low speed to blend; beat on medium speed 2 to 3 minutes. Add additional flour as needed to make a soft dough.


Turn dough out on lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and elastic, about 6 to 8 minutes. Place in greased bowl, turning to coat. Cover and let rise until doubled, about 1 hour.


Apricot Filling – Make while dough is rising.


Combine apricots, sugar and 2 cups water in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium and continue to cook for 10 minutes. Combine remaining 1 cup water, corn starch, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt. Add to apricot mixture and bring to a boil, continue to boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and let cool until dough has risen.


Punch down dough; divide into three parts. Roll 1 portion of dough into a 9-inch circle on a lightly floured counter. Place in a greased 9-inch cake pan, pressing to fit. Repeat with second portion of dough. Top each coffee cake with half of the apricot filling and spread to within 1/2-inch of the edge of the dough. Sprinkle with almonds. Roll remaining portion of dough into a 12 x 8-inch rectangle. Cut into twelve 1-inch strips. Place six strips on each coffeecake lattice style. Cover and let rise for 20 minutes.


Bake in 350°F preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes, covering with foil for the last 15 minutes.
