Saffron Cake Easy Recipe

Jump to Recipe

This saffron cake recipe easy is my go-to for the season. I make this cane every year at least once! It is just so easy, delicious and perfect for any occasion!

For this saffron milk cake, this time I used crème fraiche. Original recipe calls for milk. The consistency was not as light as with the milk. But it’s good to have options, right?!

To serve along this saffron milk cake recipe, I like some powdered sugar and redcurrants. But any berries or even whipped cream would be nice!

I like this saffron sponge cake in a round form. For some reason it looks more angelic that way!

This soft saffron cake recipe is best served on the same day. If you have any pieces over, just store them in an air tight container in the fridge.

This is also saffron cake Swedish. Which explains the amount of butter in the cake! 😊
