St. Patrick’s Day Soda Bread

We all know that ‘soaking up’ alcohol with bread is a myth. What really makes a difference is having something hearty ahead of the celebration, which brings us to this recipe for delicious soda bread. Bread is such an amazing food that can enhance a big meal or be a meal itself… At least for me anyway 😉

So whether you’re sopping up beef stew or spreading with ghee and eating it straight, you’re going to love our version of this St. Patrick’s Day Pre-Game treat!

4 c. all-purpose flour, plus more for surface
1/4 c. sugar
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking soda
6 tbsp. cold Kelapo Ghee
1 c. dried currants
2 tsp. caraway seeds
1 1/2 c. buttermilk



1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease cookie sheet.

2. In large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and baking soda. With pastry blender or 2 knives used scissor-fashion, cut in Kelapo Ghee until mixture resembles coarse crumbs. Stir in currants and caraway seeds, then buttermilk until flour is evenly moistened.

NOTE: For added fun, mix food coloring with the buttermilk before pouring onto crumbs to make a big loaf of green soda bread.

3. On a well-floured surface, knead dough 8 to 10 times just until combined. Shape into flattened ball; place on cookie sheet. Cut 1/4-inch-deep “X” into top.

4. Bake loaf 1 hour or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely on wire rack.


Cheers & Enjoy!
