Traditionally speaking the Saffron Bun is closely connected to the celebration of Lucia the 13th of December every year. Although these celebrations began during the 19th century, it is said that this bun found it's way to the Swedish region of "Mälardalen" from Germany about 200 years earlier.

The classic bun is S-shaped, with raisins placed in both ends. The saffron gives the bun a very characteristic color, taste and scent that leaves few people untouched.

For my part I could never let traditions get in the way of the good things in life, which means that I enjoy the pleasure of baking this wonderful pastry all year.
