vanilla cake into french vanilla

post #1 of 10

I have a recipe for vanilla cake or white cake that I use all the time.  A friend requested french vanilla cake.  Is there anything that I can add such as extra vanilla to make it french vanilla?  sorry probably stupid question but can anyone help me out?

I think that french vanilla has to do with more of a custard base like for ice cream.  So I would imagine you have to use egg yolks and not just whites in the recipe. :)
