The real semla not contain saffron, but because saffron is so good so clear you can make rolls with saffron flavor. Now I cheated a little. When I baked Saffron Lussekatter so I made a few rolls of the same dough, Lussekatter recipe. That is made a little round ball of dough. And baked them simultaneously. Lussekatts disappeared so fast, they did not have time to even the freezer. 🙂 This is perfect for the holidays or if you want to treat yourself with something nice with your coffee or tea.
To make four rolls so you will need:
4 saffron buns
200 ml of whipped cream
25 g almond paste
some soft juicy raisins
Split bun about 1/4 from the top. Remove some of the bread so it formed a hole. Add the raisins and almond paste. Add the cream. Finish by putting the lid on. Eat and enjoy!
