Just in time for St Patrick’s Day, Irish Soda Bread is now available at Lovejoy Bakers. First conceived by homemakers in the 1880s who had neither ovens nor leavening, Irish Soda Bread was cooked in a heavy cast iron pot placed directly in the fire. It’s traditionally made with flour, baking soda, buttermilk and salt. Our version is scented with cardamom and gets a light dusting of crystallized sugar. Enjoy it warm, with a little butter and a cup of hot tea.
Studded with candied oranges and raisins, Lovejoy’s Holiday “Panettone” is now available! Originating in Milan, Panettone is celebrated from Italy to Brazil, New York to Switzerland. If you haven’t tried Lovejoy’s version, you are in for a glorious treat. Made from buttery vanilla dough that literally melts in your mouth, Lovejoy’s delicate Panettone will forever transform your (and Grandma’s) notion of fruit cake.
Wrapped in vintage paper and tied with ribbon, Lovejoy’s Panettone makes a wonderful gift. You may want to buy one for yourself too. If you can’t finish the whole thing, Panettone makes a lovely French Toast. Available for online pre-order.
