St. Patrick’s day is right around the corner and this month’s host for Bread Bakers group Wendy (A Day in the life on the farm) asked us to share our favorite Irish Bread. So I made these delicious and pretty looking Four Leaf Clover rolls for the event. This recipe is from King Arthur flour site. Four leaf clovers are considered as good luck, so these lucky rolls are great addition to any meal for St. Patrick’s day. But they are just as good to eat as is with some butter.These rolls are soft and absolutely addictive. They are slightly sweet and the addition of currants add nice sweet fruity element to the rolls. We had them for breakfast, lunch, snack and dinner — they are that good.Don’t forget to check out the ‘Irish Breads’ that my fellow Bread Bakers have baked for the event.

Four Leaf Clover Rolls
- 2 cups all purpose flour
- 1 cup Wholewheat flour
- 2 tsp Instant Yeast
- 2 tbsp honey
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 tbsp Unsalted Butter, softened
- 1 cup Lukewarm Water
- ½ cup Walnuts, toasted and chopped
- ½ cup Currants, optional
- Combine all the ingredients in the bowl of the stand mixer or a large mixing bowl. Mix and knead until a smooth and pliable dough forms, it should take about 7~8 minutes.
- Place the dough in a lightly greased bowl, cover and rest for 60~90 minutes, until puffy but not necessarily doubles in bulk.
- Grease 8 5~6oz. ramekins.
- Gently deflate the dough, divide the dough into 8 equal pieces, then divide each piece into 4 balls. There will be 32 pieces in all. Now roll each piece into a ball.
- Place 4 balls into each of the prepared ramekins. Cover the pans and let the rolls rise for 45~75 minutes or until the rolls have crested over the rims of the ramekins.
- Preheat the oven to 350°F.
- Bake the rolls for 25~30 minutes, or until golden brown and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center registers 200°F.
- Brush the rolls with melted butter and let them cool for 5 minutes in the ramekins. Then turn them onto a wire rack to cool completely. Serve warm or at room temperature.
