Cinnamon Almond Coffeecake


1. Combine flour and yeast from hot roll mix in medium bowl. Add spices, lemon peel and 3/4 cup Equal®; mix well. Stir in remaining ingredients except Mixed Fruit Filling and almonds, to make soft dough.
2. Knead dough on lightly floured surface about 5 minutes or until smooth. Cover dough with bowl; let stand 15 minutes.
3. Divide dough into 2 equal pieces. Roll 1 piece on floured surface into 20 x 6-inch rectangle. Spread half of Mixed Fruit Filling over dough to within 1-inch of edges. Roll up dough, beginning with long edge.
4. Place dough, seam side down, on sprayed baking sheet; shape into a ring, pinching ends together to seal. Cut around sides of ring with scissors, cutting through center of dough and leaving top and bottom of ring uncut. Gently open cut surfaces of dough to expose filling. Repeat with remaining dough and filling. Let stand in warm place about 45 minutes or until doubled in size.
5. Bake coffeecakes in preheated 350°F oven about 15 minutes or until dough is browned. Slide coffeecakes onto wire racks to cool. Sprinkle with almonds, if desired.
