  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray 2 (6-unit each) donut pans with nonstick baking spray; set aside.

  2. Add cake mix to a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment. Beat in wine, vegetable oil, egg whites, almond extract, and pink or red food coloring, if desired, over low speed until just combined. Beat at medium speed for 2 to 3 minutes.
