Egg-less cake smells of raw refined flour.

Hi all..
Me and my family have turned vegetarians. It has been an year now. Now we don't use eggs while baking a cake at home.
But the problem is that the cake doesn't smell that good and sweet, as it used to smell when we used eggs.
I followed the recipes as instructed. But I feel that the cake smells of the refined floor. I generally use vanilla essence.
What do I do in order to get a perfect sweet smelling cake? Please advise.

Thanks.
