Poko Loaf

This is my adaption of the one in the Fed Up recipe book.  I have avoided this for nearly 3 years because, let's be honest, who wants to put choko in a cake?!?!?!?!  (Whatever a choko is.)  So, finally I did it and...  guess what...  it's delicious!!!  Seriously!!!!  It's quite dense and very moist and the Fed Up book says it's even better the following day.

The proportions I've used are just what I had in the fridge.  The Fed Up recipe uses double the choko,  but this was just fine.   I then used a Cream Cheese icing,  which topped it off very nicely.  I decided to do a loaf just to make it different to a 'cake',  if you know what I mean.  Also,  we got to eat one and put one in the freezer for another day,  which is a bonus.
