From the family bakes which Jo raised her three hungry boys on, to the Afternoon Tea treats for her friends, and the mouth watering savoury pies and tarts baked in her very own Aga, all of Jo's recipes will inspire you to develop your own passion for baking.

Recipes include a perfect Sticky Toffee Pudding, a heartwarming Cinnamon Swirl Loaf, indulgent Chocolate Mud Cake, and mouthwatering Mini Pistachio Meringues.

I'd never made sticky toffee pudding before but Jo's recipes have never let me down before and neither did this one!
Simple to make and quite easily the most delicious pudding I've ever made! I will make this again and again!
