Mix together the dry ingredients. Whisk to combine.
Add liquids and eggs, mixing well to completely incorporate. The batter will be thin.
Grease two 9-inch round cake pans and line with parchment. Grease parchment and dust pans with cocoa. Pour batter into prepared pans and bake in a preheated 350°F oven for 30-40 minutes until a toothpick comes out clean when inserted in the middle of the cake. Cool in pans for 10 minutes.
Run a knife around the edge to loosen cake and invert onto a cooling rack. Let cool and frost with desired frosting.
