It's unclear if you're talking about using a single large block cypher,
but assuming yes..

It's unclear what you're protecting against.  I'd recommend reading Ross

You could likely achieve whatever you want with either some grizzle
construction, or maybe some fixed none, mac, etc. encrypted along with
the plain text.
