I’m sharing 10 recipe ideas to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. Read on for Irish Soda bread recipes, recipes that use stout or Irish cream, a few recipes that bring in the color green and a tasty alternative to corned beef and cabbage.
This is my favorite soda bread recipe. It's rich with sour cream and full of flavor from the golden raisins and caraway seeds. It's almost more like a wonderful tea cake. I love it toasted with butter.
These scones have all the flavor from my Irish soda bread recipe, but in scone form. If you love Irish soda bread and you love my scones, then you're really going to love this recipe!
I took my favorite Irish soda bread recipe and made a chocolate version! Then I added cherries! It's delicious spread with Nutella or with sweetened cream cheese. I also loved it toasted and spread with salted butter and then sprinkled with powdered sugar or drizzled with honey.
Oh my gosh this is a delicious pie! It's cookies and cream cheesecake with Irish cream in the cheesecake batter, the ganache AND the whipped cream. It's a triple threat of Irish cream yum! (You can also go more kid friendly and sub out the Irish cream for a more traditional cookies and cream cheesecake.)
These cupcakes are insanely good! The cake is chocolatey, moist and dense, almost brownie-like. The ganache is shiny and fudgy. The filling is creamy, cool and flavored with Bailey’s Irish Cream. More than a few who have tried these said they were the best cupcakes they’ve ever had!
These are the super easy treat you get to make with the leftover cake crumbs and ganache you’ll have from making those insanely good Chocolate Stout Cupcakes mentioned above. Yep, you get two treats from one recipe!
These feel like a throw back to 70's desserts. This easy chocolate pudding is made from scratch, topped with creamy chocolate mousse, layered with chocolate wafer cookies and topped with peppermint whipped cream.
Here's another minty green idea for you...this is another one of my not too sweet frostings. Use it to frost cakes and cupcakes or fill whoopie pies with it. Use it now for St. Patrick's Day, then keep it on file for the holidays!
A little bit green and a lotta bit minty! These are a fave during the holidays, but who says we can't make them all year? If you can't find Andes mint chips in the stores now, just pick up the packages of individual candies and chop them up.
Ok. This is a bit of a stretch, but let's just call it an alternative to corned beef and cabbage. There's no beef, but we have cabbage. And the gnocchi are potato based and potatoes could remind you of Ireland, right? (Or, Idaho, but we're not going to think about that for today ;) If you love the combo of sweet and sour, you'll love the salty, savory sausage paired with a lightly sweetened sauerkraut. The gnocchi add a creamy heartiness. It's a fast and easy weeknight dinner option.
