  3. Whisk the eggs in a separate cup or bowl
  4. Add the whisked eggs to the creamed sugar/sunflower spread

  7. Mash the bananas
  8. Mix in the mashed bananas and sultanas
  9. Line the tin with the loaf liner
  10. Pour the mixture into the tin and give the tin a small tap (to release any air bubbles)
  11. Put the tin into the pre-heated oven on the middle shelf and bake for 55-60 minutes until cooked (until a knife or skewer comes out clean) 
  12. Once cooked, remove the tin from the oven and place on a wire cooling rack
  13. Whilst the loaf is cooling, slice the banana for the topping
  14. Add the caster sugar and water for the topping to a non-stick pan
  15. Heat the pan until the sugar and water have turned golden and formed a caramel
  16. Add the sliced banana to the pan and coat it with the caramel
  17. Add the knob of sunflower spread to the pan and cook for 1-2 minutes until it's completely melted and absorbed into the caramel
  18. Place the caramelised banana slices onto the loaf
  19. Serve and enjoy!!
