Swedish Saffron buns also known as St.Lucia saffron buns are traditional saffron spiced bread rolls, typically made around Christmas and for St Lucia Day. St Lucia day is celebrated across the Scandinavian countries on December 13th. They are distributed to family and friends and served along with a warm drink and cookies.

These ‘S’ shaped, mildly sweet, rich rolls are usually topped with a raisin on each end. Saffron added to the dough is what gives these buns the beautiful golden colour. They taste best when served warm and fresh out of the oven.The golden Swedish Saffron buns make for a perfect tea treat not just for the festive season but all year round.

Serve Swedish Saffron Buns with Apple Tea Latte Recipe or Maple Roasted Cinnamon Spiced Latte Recipe to warm you up on a cold evening.
