I follow the very talented Jo Wheatley of GBBO and have one of her baking books which I refer to regularly. She was one of the winners at the start of Bake Off and had such a passion and love for baking that I knew she would be hugely successful which she is.
Her Poke Loaf is a joy to make and of course to eat! There are lots of variations and I’ll list them below in the recipe. Jo originally covered her loaves with buttercream but for lots of reasons, I changed it up a little and am very happy with the result. I think these turn out to be the perfect “piece of cake” with that morning or afternoon break and works perfectly for a Coffee Morning.
