Happy Thanksgiving to all my American friends!
It’s been a pretty cold week here in Calgary but it was also very beautiful the way the tree branches were covered in snow, the trees look like they belong on a Christmas card, simply magnificent. I have to be careful now because I almost sound like I enjoy this weather.
Today’s recipe is saffron raisin buns which are from a recipe I found on a Polish website and I thought the buns looked incredible. I love the cute S shape and I love any type of raisin bun or raisin bread. The addition of saffron sounded intriguing and so I decided to make them. These type of rolls are perfect for breakfast, in fact that’s I usually make these buns. Oh and if you have them with a good cup of coffee they are incredible.
If you’ve ever made raisin bread, this dough is very similar to that. I love to use golden raisins in my breads and rolls but it’s up to you which ones you use, and I also love to soak mine in a little bit of rum before adding them to the dough, but that’s completely optional.
Shaping the buns is not much of a challenge, you just have to form ropes and turn the rope into an S shape. They look so adorable.You just have to brush them with some egg, bake them and voila.
Your stomach will thank you, your hips might not but your stomach will.
