Rachel Allen: Bake! Friday, RTÉ One, 8.30pm (Repeat)

Programme 11

Today on Bake, Rachel shows you how to make a gorgeous poppy seed cake. It is incredibly rich and smothered with a vanilla buttercream icing.

Rachel meets Michelin starred chef Atul Kochhar, renowned for his masterful use of spices. He takes her on a culinary trip back to his childhood and bakes some sweet treats his mum will be proud of!

And Rachel teaches the cookery school students a great recipe for bagels - you may be surprised that they get their dense chewiness from being poached first and then baked.
