Dairy-free cake recipes?

Hi all:

Can anyone recommend a dairy-free recipe for cake or cupcakes that isn't too complicated? I'm planning for my dairy-allergic child's first birthday this spring. I suspect he'll be bringing his own cupcake to parties a lot until/unless he outgrows it.

Is there any certain kind of cake you'd like to make or anything you'd like to stay away from?

Simple is good, with a surface suitable for typical birthday decoration.

Try this one. It is very good and easy.

Chocolate Cake (Vegan)

3 cups flour

2 cups sugar

6 Tablespoons Cocoa

2 teaspoons Baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt

2/3 cups oil

2 tablespoons white vinegar

2 cups water

2 teaspoons vanilla extract (optional)

Mix all together and beat for 2 minutes. Pour into ungreased 9x12 pan at 350 degrees F. for 30 minutes, until toothpick inserted in middle comes out clean.

NOTES: I might not have tried this recipe because it is not my usual cake recipe...I use eggs in most my recipes...but it came so highly recommended. It is a wonderful cake and it makes great cupcakes as well!
