Happy St. Patrick's Day - Part 2
Hello --- and Happy St. Patrick’s Day, everyone :^)
Borrowing the fun shaping for freerk and Levine’s Speculaas Rolls, to make these ‘Four Leaf Clovers’ for St. Patrick’s Day.
The dough is a very tasty Roasted Potato Bread from Advanced Bread and Pastry; the ‘clovers’ are dusted with Green Pea flour (Bob’s Red Mill).

The bread has really good flavor and a tender crumb – and so enjoyable to try another wonderful formula from
Advanced Bread and Pastry, with this shaping method, for St. Patrick’s Day!
Happy baking everyone,
Submitted to YeastSpotting, Susan’s weekly bread event :^)
Very creative shaping breadsong! And while I haven't made this particular recipe, I have made Hamelman's roasted potato bread and it is delicious. As you say, it makes for a moist crumb with a tender bite. Dusting with green pea flour is very novel and looks so pretty.
Thank you so much.
I can't take credit for the shaping idea; TFL user dawkins baked freerk and Levine's speculaas rolls, and mentioned how the rolls looked like clovers when posting :^)
(as perfect a shaping job as I've ever seen...! I thought the rolls dawkins made looked absolutely beautiful!)
I held onto the idea and it was good to make them again, using this delicious roasted potato dough.
What beautiful looking breads! You are really creative, Breadsong! I just made the good ole soda breads for St. Patrick's Day.
I never heard about green pea flour - is it normally used for gluten free baking?
Hi Karin - thanks so much!
I just tasted soda bread for the first time yesterday - loved it - nice to know you were baking them too.
Not knowing anything about gluten-free baking, I'm not sure how you would use green pea flour, but the package notes you can substitute 20 grams per cup for wheat flour.
Maybe I should try that for Shiao-Ping's Orange-Infused Avocado Sourdough, for extra 'green' color!
Amazing looking bread!
I bet they taste as good as they look.
Thank you so much, Ian! :^)
The shaping is wonderful, and I love that your green came from natural green pea flour :) Bet they were delicious, too, with rye, wheat and potato!
I loved the combination of ingredients in this bread - really, really flavorful.
It was fun to use this flour to 'decorate' with - now I should figure out how to use it in something!
and creative shaping. I would say you've outdone yourself, but then what would I say next time. -Varda
Your comment brought a smile - thank you so much for your kindness!
Really great shaping. Another work of bread art.
I'm sure they'll bring luck.
Thank you very much - for your compliments, and good thoughts; happy to find (good) luck, anytime!
breadsong! Using a potato bread is very apropos for St Pat's day too. St Pat himself, had he made this beautiful bread, would have used a 3 leaf clover instead of 4 because he actually used the 3 leaves of clover to help explain the concept of the Holy Trinity to the Irish so long ago. But, even he would be gobsmacked by your rolls - 4 leaves or no. Yours are certainly luckier. Love the green pea flour - ever even knew it existed till now.
The potato bread was a deliberate choice :^)
Thanks so much for your compliments, and history note!
