A leisurely Sunday morning like this, I (Lisa) felt to bake saffron buns. But when I had mixed oat milk and saffron in the bowl, I discover that the yeast was too old! No! So I had to abandon my first idea. But I knew we had some backing powdered so why not try making saffron muffins?

So the saffron bun base turned into these wonderful saffron cupcakes with both lingonbery and raisins.

It’s wonderful that Christmas is soon here! Last week we got a real Christmas spirit when it was snowing and freezing temperatures for several days.
