  • Proof yeast in warm water.
  • Meanwhile, in a mixer bowl beat the margarine or butter with an electric mixer on medium speed for 30 seconds. Add 1 cup of the flour, the rolled oats, milk, eggs, brown sugar, salt, and the yeast mixture.
  • Beat on low speed of an electric mixer for 30 seconds, scraping sides of bowl constantly. Beat on high speed for 3 minutes. Beat or stir in the remaining flour till well blended.
  • Grease two 8-inch round baking pans or one 13x9x2-inch baking pan. Spread half of the dough evenly in prepared pans.
  • Combine the preserves and the almonds. Spread preserves mixture evenly over dough in pans. Spoon remaining dough in small mounds on top of the preserves mixture, covering as much of the preserves as possible.
  • For topping, in a mixing bowl combine the 1/4 cup flour, the sugar, oats, and cinnamon. Cut in the margarine or butter to make a crumb mixture. Sprinkle topping evenly over top layer of dough. Cover and let rise in a warm place till nearly double (30 or 40 minutes).
