Sweet saffron bread


  • In a bowl, add the raisins, saffron, and boiling water.
  • Allow 5 minutes for the raisins to soak and absorb the saffron’s aroma.
  • Drain the raisins and keep their water in the bowl. Then, squeeze them tightly with your hands over the bowl, so to remove the excess water they have absorbed and set them aside.
  • Transfer the water from the raisins in the mixer’s bowl and add the milk. Add the yeast and mix with a fork. Allow 5-10 minutes for the yeast to be activated.
  • Place the bowl on the mixer and beat with the paddle attachment at medium speed. Add the eggs and the sugar, and beat for 2 minutes.
  • In a bowl, mix the flour with the raisins and the salt. Add half of the flour’s quantity into the mixer’s bowl. Cut the butter and add it to the bowl in batches. Add the rest of the flour and beat with the hook attachment at medium speed for 5 minutes, until there is a malleable dough of uniform thickness.
  • Transfer the dough into a lightly greased bowl, cover it with plastic wrap and allow 1-2 hours for it to double in volume.
  • Preheat the oven to 170ο C (338ο F) set to fan.
  • Butter and flour a 22 cm cake pan and add the dough.
  • Bake for 40 minutes, until you stick a toothpick in the center of the bread and it comes out clean.
  • Remove from the oven and set it on a rack for 20 minutes to cool down.
  • Then, flip it over, take it out of the cake pan, and let it cool completely.
