Do you call it maybe "butter cake".

Nope. We have Victoria sponge or Madeira generally.

Pretty sure yellow cake is a vanilla cake made with just egg yolks, no whites.  This recipe is fantastic, follow the directions for yolks only: http://fromscratchsf.wordpress.com/2011/07/26/white-cake-part-3-with-recipe/

Why would you make a cake with only egg yolks?

I just made the cake doctor version because I hate yellow cake..now I hate yellow cake more!

SO bland and bad after taste. I'm starting to become a scratch snob. I hate cake to begin with but when it tastes so chemical tasting then I just uck even more.

Sorry ramble I know.

Its just vanilla cake that is yellow because yes it uses the whole egg.

A yellow cake has a bigger crumb, a bit richer and a bit denser than a white cake. The egg yolks give it a slight custardy/eggy taste, and a silkier mouth feel.

 

That is speaking of scratch cakes, I can't really see a cake mix doing a good job at the subtle differences in richness and crumb.

Try Buddy Valastro's Vanilla Cake recipe. I use it all the time. Fool proof and comes out great every time!
