Saffron Braids
Traditional, Delicious Swedish Buns!
50 g yeast
175 g butter
500 ml milk
1g saffron
1 tsp. salt
200 ml sugar
1000 ml flour


Crumble the yeast in a bowl.

Melt the cooking fat, pour on the milk and heat the liquid until lukewarm, 100 degrees F.

Stir the yeast with parts of the liquid. Add the rest of the liquid, along with saffron, salt and sugar. Stir cautiously until yeast is dissolved.

Knead in enough flour to make the dough smooth and supple. It should not stick to the bowl. Sprinkle some flour over the dough.

Allow to rise under tea-towel to double size, approximately 45 minutes.

Knead the dough for a few minutes in the bowl. Then knead them on the pastry board along with the rest of the flour.

Make braids or lengths. Put them on greased plates or oven paper.

Let them rise under tea-towels until they are nearly double the size.

Brush with whipped eggs.

Bake in lower part of oven at 200 degrees for 15-20 minutes.
