Saffron Buns Again

30 Nov

This week I’m spending a lot of time with my 6-year-old niece here in Stockholm and yesterday we made saffron buns after school. Since saffron bun are called lussekatt in Swedish, where the katt means cat (Does anyone know why these buns are called this? Anyone? Please?) we associated away and started shaping the buns in different shapes of animals. The recipe is the same as last time.

Snail, rabbit, elephant, cats and a snowman before the heat in the oven…

Fancy a saffron-snail anyone?



Jag tillbringar mycket tid med min 6-åriga systerdotter den här veckan och igår bakade vi lussekatter. Fria associationer på ordet katt ledde till massa olika lussedjur. Är det någon som vet varför det heter lussekatt?
