St. Lucia Buns
So many names for this festive bread.
I remember hearing about Sweden’s St. Lucia Day when I was in child and seeing the pictures of a young girl in a long white dress with a wreath of burning candles on her head.
Right – a child wearing burning candles on her head.
Not only that, said child, with the burning candle hat, was supposed to serve her parents breakfast in bed.
Now there is a pandemic lock-down goal for all parents this holiday season!
Please let me know how that worked.
Seriously…. according to Judy, of Judy’s Gross Eats, and our host kitchen for this month, the golden color from saffron is supposed to represent light and the beginning of the end of the darkness of winter.
That idea I like.
Abd the buns look pretty tasty, too. They are slightly sweet and flavored with saffron.
And maybe cardamom.
They are finished with raisins.
Or maybe dried cranberries.
As usual, the variety is only limited by the number of Babes.
If you want to try these golden buns, get all the details, the original recipe, and the full story at Judy’s Gross Eats.
These could possible even replace cookies for my Christmas breakfast.
And that’s it for the Babes in the December. Happy Holidays to all !
Stay Safe & Healthy…. We’re getting closer to the end….
And keep on wearing your mask!!!
