Here is a recipe for vanilla cupcakes that sound delicious by Pam Delliah that you could possibly make as a whole cake.

Vanilla one mix Cupcakes
125g softened unsalted butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
150g caster sugar (2/3 of a cup)
3 eggs (room temperature if possible)
225g self raising flour (1½ cups)
60ml milk (¼ of a cup)
1. Preheat oven to moderate (180ºC). Line two deep 12-hole patty pans with paper cases
2. Combine ingredients in small bowl of electric mixer; beat on low speed until ingredients are just combined. Increase speed to medium; beat about 3 minutes or until mixture is smooth and changed to a paler colour
3. Drop slightly rounded tablespoons of mixture into paper cases.
4. Bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes.
5. Turn cakes onto wire rack; turn top-side up to cool

Nigella’s vanilla cake

225gsoft butter, plus extra for greasing
300g caster sugar
6 eggs
350g plain flour
½ tsp bicarbonate of soda
250mllow-fat natural yoghurt
4 tsp vanilla extract
1-2 tbsp icing sugar, to taste

1. Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/. Place a baking tray into the oven to heat.
2. Grease a tin very liberally with butter.
3. Mix the butter and sugar together in a large bowl with a wooden spoon until light and fluffy.
4. Add the eggs, one at a time, whisking each one in with a tablespoon of the flour. Carefully fold in the remaining flour using a large metal spoon, then fold in the yoghurt and vanilla extract until well combined.
5. Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and spread until level. Place the tin on the preheated baking sheet in the oven and cook for 45-60 minutes, until well risen and golden-brown. After 45 minutes, push a metal skewer into the centre of the cake. If it comes out clean, the cake is cooked.
6. Remove the cake from the oven and place onto a wire rack, without removing it from the tin. Leave to cool for 15 minutes.
7. Gently pull away the edges of the cake from the tin with your fingers, then carefully turn out the cake onto the wire rack. Leave to cool completely.
8. Once cool, sieve the icing sugar over the cake. Serve in slices

Bumped for someone wanting recipes using lots of eggs. Nigella's Vanilla Cake is a really good recipe.
