Best vanilla cake recipe

I have used this recipe now for years.  It is easy, dense enough to carve and shape and works every time!  I use imperial measurements as I find they are more accurate.

12oz flour
4oz butter
2 lg egs  and 1 egg white
12oz SR flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 pt milk
2 tsp vanilla

Cream the sugar, butter and vanilla until pale

Add eggs 1 at a time and beat

Add sieved flour 1 spoonfull at a time, mix slowly adding 1/2 pint milk gradually.

I usually split this amount between 2 round tins and bake at 175/180 c for 30 mins.  If all in 1 tin, bake for 60 mins.
