This bread is a flavorful, slightly sweet holiday bread with just a hint of saffron throughout.
Lussekatter – St. Lucia Saffron Buns
Our Nordic neighbors are known for taking their holidays seriously, and Sweden’s winter solstice ‘St. Lucia’s Day’ is perfect example of really getting the most out of the holiday season. This mid-December celebration traditionally has eldest daughter dressing up in a robe, sash, and candle crown to deliver coffee (or may we suggest, Saffron Green Tea) to serve these buns to their parents for breakfast. Is the eldest daughter also in charge of making the buns? We are asking our Swedish friends to find out. In the meantime, add these delicious buttery, lightly sweet and vibrant yellow buns to your holiday repertoire!
