Cream the butter and sugar together with a spoon, until the butter is two shades lighter.
Add the vanilla essence.
Whisk the eggs in a cup with a fork.
Add a little of the whisked eggs and then a little flour, it helps if you sieve it in.
Fold the ingredients together.
Keep doing this until all the flour and egg has gone, (If you run out of one first it's OK, add the rest of the other on it's own)
Give it all one last mix.
Using two tea spoons scoop a heaped tea spoon of mix into each case. (it helps to keep the shape if you double up the cases)
Cook on gas mark 5 for 15-25 minutes.
Remove from oven and leave to cool.
Enjoy yummy cakes
