  2. In a large bowl, whip oil and sugar together. Stir in vanilla. In a measuring cup, stir almond milk and vinegar together. Set aside to curdle. In a different bowl, stir all dry ingredients together until evenly mixed. Alternate mixing in wet and dry ingredients to the batter starting and ending with dry.
  3. Pour evenly into prepared pans and bake 20 minutes or until toothpick comes out with a few moist crumbs after being inserted. Cool 15 minutes, then remove cakes from warm pans to cooling rack. Cool completely.
  4. After cakes are cooled, make a batch of chocolate frosting. Be sure to whip it well, scrape the sides well and use room temperature butter.
