Almond Saffrons Buns – Saffransbullar med mandel

Juicy fluffy buns filled with almond paste, vanilla and butter. I always get to share the recipe after I treat my family and friends to these buns.

I N G R E D I E N T S :


  • 500g milk [5 dl]
  • 50g yeast
  • 1 g of saffron
  • 520 gr wheat flour [8.5 dl]


  • 150g butter, room temperature
  • 170 gr caster sugar [2 dl]
  • 2 gr salt [2 krm]
  • 320 gr wheat flour [5.5 dl]


  • 250 gr almond mass
  • 25g caster sugar [2 tbsp]
  • 3 gr vanilla sugar [1 tsp]
  • 120 gr butter, room temperature

Brushing and garnishing

  • 1 egg
  • sweet almonds, sliced
  • pearl sugar

H O W T O P R E P A R E :


  • Heat the milk with the saffron until finger warm and dissolve the yeast in it.
  • Mix the milk with the wheat flour, knead into a fine dough. If you have a kitchen assistant, I recommend you use it with a hook, then knead the dough for 5 minutes.
  • Let it remain with a cloth over it and rest for 15-20 min.
  • Mix the remaining ingredients into the dough and process on medium speed until the dough feels smooth, shiny and begins to release the edges. If you don’t have a kitchen assistant, then it is important that you knead until you can’t take it anymore, only then is it ready.
  • Let the dough rest under a cloth for about 20-30 minutes so that the dough releases its tension.


  • Mix almond mass with caster sugar and vanilla sugar.
  • Mix in the butter a little at a time until you have a smooth and nice filling.
  • Roll out the dough, about 45×70 cm and about 0.5 cm thick dough on a lightly floured table.
  • Spread the filling evenly over the dough.
  • Grab the top of the dough and fold it over to make a half fold.
  • Divide the dough into oblong strips and i twisted my buns and roll it ( see pic )
  • Place the buns on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
  • Allow to rise properly under a cloth for 1-2 hours.
  • Heat the oven to 200 degrees.
  • Brush the buns with egg and sprinkle with slivered almonds and pearl sugar.
  • Bake in the middle of the oven for 13-15 minutes until your saffron buns have acquired a nice golden brown color.
