About vanilla and vanilla extract. Vanilla is the pod of a climbing vine and a member of the orchid family. Vanilla extract is made from whole vanilla beans that have been soaked in alcohol. Vanillin is an artificial vanilla flavor chemically made from wood waste. By United States law, pure vanilla extract must be made from vanilla. Imitations must be labeled. When using imitation vanilla instead of pure extract, double the amount called for in the recipe.
2 cups (4 sticks) sweet unsalted butter
1 pound confectioners' sugar
6 eggs
1 pound all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Butter a 9 1/2-inch tube pan

In a large bowl with an electric mixer, cream the butter and sugar together until the mixture is light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.

Beat in the eggs, one by one, beating well after each addition. Then add the flour to the mixture, a little at a time. Stir in the vanilla.

Pour into the prepared pan and bake for 1 1/2 hours, or until a wooden toothpick inserted into the center of the cake comes out clean.

Good but
Better yet is to add a teaspoon of lemon extract. The difference is amazing!
