The next Swedish bread I made last week is the saffron bun. I am sure many of you would be familiar with this saffron bun. Saffron is added while kneading the dough and it gives an amazing colour to the final buns. These buns are made for Swedish Christmas time St Lucia feast on December 13th. Made in the shape of S, they are also studded with raisins.

For the second of Blogging Marathon, I chose to do three Swedish dishes. As you know I love bread, and whenever I get a chance to bake bread, I do it. And when I saw the theme Swedish recipes, I chose to do three Swedish breads. Selecting the recipes was tough. There were so many beautiful breads in Swedish cuisine and I had a hard time selecting three from the list. The very first recipe is the crispbread which is most common in Sweden. They are crispy flat breads which can be served with any topping and the Swedish stock it regularly in their pantry. The bread used to be made with a hole in the centre so that they are stocked up on a wooden rod and left out for drying. But nowadays, they are sold as squares with various seed toppings.
