Mix Dry Ingredients:

In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and salt.

Combine Wet Ingredients:

In a separate bowl, mix together the water (or non-dairy milk), oil, vinegar, and vanilla extract. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients: Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix. Bake: Pour the batter into the prepared cake pans and smooth the tops. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Cool: Allow the cakes to cool in the pans for about 10 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely. Frosting (Optional): Once the cake is completely cool, you can frost it with a dairy-free frosting of your choice. This basic recipe can be adapted to include various flavors and additions. Feel free to experiment with different non-dairy milk alternatives and flavorings to suit your preferences.
Keep in mind that there are also commercially available dairy-free cake mixes and dairy-free frosting options if you prefer a more convenient solution.
