This recipe isn’t actually mine. I got it from my friend’s mom (hi Gustav!), who is a great cook. She tries truly surprisingly flavour combinations and always ends up with unexpected (good unexpected) results, like this saffron dessert. The taste of saffron is very subtle, but also very surprising in a dessert, so iit won’t go unnoticed. 

If you’re not up to trying saffron, just leave it out. It will be just as good, believe me!
