  1. preheat oven 180Celsius. grease & line loaf pan.
  2. sprinkle 1.5tbs castor sugar into the pan & tilt to distribute an even layer of sugar to the bottom & sides of pan. shake off the remaining excess
  3. sift flour, baking powder & cornflour into mixing bowl - 3times
  4. cream butter in mixer until soft & pale. add remaining sugar until light & fluffy.
  5. add eggs, 1 at a time
