Scandi tip #7: Saffron

For us Swedes saffron is synonym with Christmas and advent. Probably because we use it in the saffron buns that are compulsory on the 13th December when we celebrate S:t Lucia.

At this time of year we put saffron into anything we can think of to get into the Christmas spirit; like this cake I made last year. This is a perfect advent treat served with whipped cream and raspberries.

And here are a few more saffron related recipes:
