Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 9-inch cake pan with butter, then lightly dust evenly with flour. Evenly sprinkle oats and almonds in the bottom of the pan. Set aside. In a small glass bowl, mix together melted butter, brown sugar, preserves and sliced pear until combined. Set aside. In a medium mixing bowl, use a hand mixer to beat together butter/oil, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla extract and preserves until fluffy. In another medium mixing bowl, whisk together flour, oats, flax seed, baking powder, baking soda and salt. Add flour mixture and sour cream alternately to sugar mixture, starting and ending with flour, beating on low using the hand mixer until just combined. Pour half of the batter into the prepared cake pan and spread evenly in the pan. Arrange pear mixture on top of the batter, then pour remaining batter on top and spread evenly across the pan. Bake 45-55 minutes, until cake is set and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow cake to cool completely, then turn over onto a platter and slice to serve.
