Charlie’s advent Calendar: Day 13 – Saffron cake 2.0



Christmas is just days away, but I must confess I don’t really feel the Christmas spirit this year, I don’t know why – if its due to stress, sickness or what. I have a million things on my plate right now, and I’m heading back home in a few days and the deadlines hanging upon me are endless and the time is very limited, but yet here I’m currently writing a blog post on a train, while heading into work.

I made a similar post last year, during my 12 days of Christmas, but this is an upgraded version and to tell the truth I found this cake rather heavenly, the taste of smoked scotch whiskey, lemon and saffron is a match made in heaven. So why don’t try it out as it’s a super easy cake to bake as well.

1 cup/2.5 dl of sugar

0.4 cups/ 1 dl of milk
