In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.
In a separate bowl or large measuring cup, whisk together the water, vegetable oil, sugar, vinegar, vanilla, and almond extract.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and stir until just combined. There will be some lumps, that is ok.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
Bake the cake for 30 to 35 minutes, until the top feels set, the edges are beginning to pull away from the sides of the pan, and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
Remove the cake from the oven allow it to cool completely in the pan before poking with holes.
Poke cake with fork tines all over.
