Coat a standard-size (3 1/2-inch) doughnut pan* or twelve 2 1/2-inch muffin cups with cooking spray. In a bowl combine the next five ingredients (through baking soda). Using a pastry blender, cut in butter until mixture resembles fine crumbs. In another bowl combine the next four ingredients (through almond extract). Add egg mixture all at once to flour mixture; stir just until combined (do not overmix). Spoon batter into a large resealable plastic bag. Using scissors, cut off a corner; squeeze batter into prepared pan, filling each cup about two-thirds full. Smooth tops. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until doughnuts are light golden brown and spring back when lightly pressed. Cool in pan on a wire rack 5 minutes. Turn doughnuts out of pan. If desired, place doughnuts on parchment or foil and sprinkle with powdered sugar. Serve warm. *Tip If necessary, bake doughnuts in doughnut pan in two batches, washing pan and coating again with cooking spray before filling with the remaining batter.
