I love saffron, so this looks like a winner to me! Thanks for sharing, I'd never heard of this type of bread before. I'm going to ask my Welsh friend about it, and see if she's got a heirloom recipe in the family.

Crowdy Crawn

Another delicious Welsh Treat is
Figgyhobbin -- I think the Mineral Point Chamber of Commerce can share a recipe -- www.mineralpoint.com



I'm laughing because I DID think "little red sperm" then I read it! This sounds like one of those cookbooks that would be read cover to cover in my house!

Thank you so much for sharing the recipe! Wonderful blog, as always!!!!


One summer, I had Marcia Adams Heartland out of the library for MONTHS. Thanks for reminding me of that book...must go search it out again.

And this sounds lovely...I actually have all of that on hand. thanks!


I am not certain but my other half is from Cornwall and Saffron bread is a cornish recipe rather than Welsh (as is Figgyhobbin) the Welsh equivalent is Bara Brith.

But thanks for the link to Mineral Point..


I've never made anything sweet with saffron before but I often pick up the little glass jar while I'm shopping and think about what I could make with it besides piaya. Now I have a good reason to buy some. :-)
