    50g unsalted butter, melted
    2 tsp vanilla essence
    2 medium Waitrose British Blacktail Free Range Eggs
    1 tbsp milk
    2 tbsp agave syrup, plus extra to serve

    100g Brazil nuts, roasted and chopped
    50g dried banana slices


    1. Preheat the oven to 160°C, gas mark 3. Line a 900g loaf tin with parchment paper and set aside. In a large bowl, combine the melted butter, vanilla essence, eggs, milk and agave syrup. Stir in the mashed banana.
