  • 1
    Preheat oven to 325º F for a dark coated pan or 350º F for a metal pan. Spray a two-piece donut cake pan with baking spray.
  • 2
    Combine cake mix, milk, softened butter, sour cream, eggs and almond extract in a large mixing bowl. Using an electric mixer, beat cake mix on low for 30 seconds, then on medium for 2 minutes.
  • 3
    Remove enough cake batter to fill one cupcake liner. Equally divide remaining batter among the two cake pans.
  • 4
    Bake cakes for 34-40 minutes. Bake cupcake for 14-19 minutes. Allow cakes to cool for 10 minutes in pans, then remove and cool completely on a cooling rack. Set cakes on serving plates.
  • 5
    Carve dome off the top of the cupcake, then split the cupcake in half so you have 2 thin circles. Place one half in the center at the base of each cake, plugging the hole.
  • 6
    Pour raspberry jam into a microwave-safe bowl. Heat for 10-20 seconds to soften. Pour half of the jam into the indentation in each cake, filling the cakes to the top.
  • 7
    Combine powdered sugar, 1 1/2 teaspoons milk and almond extract. Stir until smooth. If needed, add more milk (a few drops at a time) until you get a nice pourable glaze. Drizzle glaze over top of cakes.
