  1. Preheat oven to 180c. Grease well or spray a 12x23cm loaf pan with non-stick baking spray. Sprinkle the sides and base with the 2 tbsp of sugar, shaking out the excess.
  2. Beat eggs until pale and fluffy. Slowly, a spoon at a time, add the sugar. Add the vanilla and fold in the flour and baking powder.
  3. Pour into the prepared tin and sprinkle a little extra sugar over the top and bake for 35-40 minutes until the top is golden brown and crunchy.
  4. Cool loaf on a wire rack. Slice with a serrated knife when cold.
