Question Cake recipes for an 8" pan

I would like to make a small homemade cake, using either an 8" round or square cake pan. Do you have a favorite recipe you would share with me? Thanks.

Note:
The volume capacity of 8-inch square [2" deep] is the same as the volume capacity of 9-inch round [2" deep] cake pan. The volume capacity of 8-inch round [2" deep] is smaller, of course, than either.

Whipped Cream Cake
1 cup whipping cream
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 1/2 cups cake flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Directions:
1 Sift and measure flour. Add salt and baking powder, and sift again.
2 Whip the cream until stiff. Drop in eggs one at a time, and beat until light and fluffy. Add sugar and vanilla, and beat again. Add sifted ingredients gradually to mixture; beat well after each addition. Pour batter into greased 9 inch round pan.
3 Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 35 minutes.

That's just not correct! The volume of an 8" X 8" X 2" pan is 128 cubic inches, but a 9-inch round pan that's 2 inches deep holds only 127.234395 cubic inches! Do the math!
