What better way to celebrate your Irishness than to cook up some delicious, Paddy's Day themed recipes?
Whether you fancy a traditional bake or want to try your luck at something new, take your pick from these three fabulous recipes.
Mini Lucky Charm Cheesecakes
Lover of cheesecake? Then this is the perfect little Irish treat for you (for the full recipe, visit Woman’s Day).
- To make the crust, pre-heat the oven to 350°F (180°C, Gas Mark 4), and line mini muffin pans with liners. Mix the Lucky Charms for 1 minute in a food processor, and then add butter until it resembles wet sand. Add one heaped teaspoon of the mixture in the bottom of each liner and bake for 5 minutes, or until lightly golden. Allow to cool.
- For the filling, in a small saucepan on medium heat, add heavy cream and cereal, bringing them to boil. Set aside to cool for 15mins before pouring through a sieve in a measuring cup, pressing down on the solids to release liquid.
- In a large bowl, beat cream cheese and sugar until fluffy, adding vanilla and salt. Add eggs, 1 at a time, then the heavy cream. Once fully mixed, tint with green food colouring.
- Divide into liners and bake for around 10-15mins, or until set with moist centres. Leave to cool, and refrigerate for around 30mins. Top off each with whipped cream and marshmallows, then enjoy!
Irish Soda Bread
We all love some tasty, crunchy bread, and this Irish Soda Bread (for the full recipe, visit Woman’s Day) is delicious.
- Heat oven to 400°F (200°C, Gas Mark 6), and lightly oil and 8-inch cast-iron skillet. In a large bowl, whisk flour, wheat germ, sugar, baking soda and salt. Rubber button cubes into the flour mixture until small pebbles form, then stir in sunflower seeds and flaxseeds.
- Slightly wet your hands and form dough balls, transferring into the prepared pan. Brush buttermilk and top with oats and sunflower & flaxseeds.
- Cut a cross into the top of the loaf, and bake until golden brown for 45-55mins. The internal temperature should register at around 200°F (90°C). Remove from skillet and leave to cool.
Guinness Chocolate Pudding
Have you enjoyed a hearty meal with family and friends? Well, time for the dessert, with Guinness Chocolate Pudding on the menu! (for the full recipe, visit BBC GoodFood).
- Butter four ramekins and set aside. Tip butter, chocolate and salt into a heatproof bowl, and set over a pan of just-simmering water. Stir until melted and remove from heat to cool.
- Place eggs and sugar in a mixing and beat with an electric whisk until pale, almost doubled in volume and thick. Fold in the melted chocolate and Guinness. Spoon the mixture into the ramekins, then chill in the fridge for an hour. Heat the oven to 200°C (400°F, Gas Mark 6) and place a baking tray on the top shelf to heat up.
- Place the ramekins on the tray and bake for 18mins. Once removed, leave to stand for one minute then serve with a dollop of cream.
