Perfect Holiday Recipe!

Authentic Swedish Saffron Buns

Made in time for Saint Lucia day they're eaten all through the holidays. This is my 100% authentic, tried and tested, all-time best recipe - and it's easy to make without quark and nuts.


Saffron Threads Sugar Rum Fresh Yeast Milk Salted Butter Flour Raisins Eggs

Grind together the saffron and sugar. Then mix with the rum and set aside.

In a large bowl, mix together the yeast, milk, butter, saffron mix, and rum

Start adding the flour a little at a time. Then start kneading the dough. Then set aside.

Take pieces of the dough, roll them out into a long snake shape, then roll the edges to create the "S" shape

Place a raisin in the middle of each spiral, then set aside. Once the dough has risen, brush them with an egg wash

Bake the Buns until golden brown. Then place on a cooling rake before serving.
