  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Line a 12 hole fairy cake tin with paper cases.
  2. In a mixing bowl beat the butter and sugar together until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs, a little at a time until pale and creamy, and stir in the vanilla extract and milk. Fold in the flour using a large metal spoon. Divide the cake mixture equally between the prepared paper cases, filling only to 3/4 full to ensure a good rise.
