The Saint Lucia buns They are buns of Swedish origin that are prepared to celebrate December 13, the day of Saint Lucia.

Legend says that Saint Lucia appeared on the longest night of the year, according to the Gregorian calendar, bringing light, heat, food and wine to comfort in the coldest hours.

We join this celebration by making these delicious buns with its particular shape, its beautiful color that saffron gives us, and whose crumb reminds us of brioche but with less butter.

They're a authentic delicacy What do I invite you to do at home?
