Yuletide Goodie: Lussekatter Recipe


4 1/2 cups of white flower
2 cups of milk
1 1/2 – 2 oz. yeast
3/4 – 1 1/8 cup of white sugar
1/2 tsp of saffron
10 – 14 Tbsp of butter
1 egg, beaten
dried currants or raisins


Coil each end in, making a figure “S”. Place one “S” cross-wise on top of another and place on a greased baking sheet.

Press a currant or raisin into the centre of each spiral.

Cover and let buns rise until about double in size (until they feel spongy when pressed lightly with finger).

Gently brush a lightly beaten egg onto the buns.

Bake at 375°F. The buns should have a nice golden brown color and feel light when done(approximately 10 minutes).

Place buns on a soft cloth, cover with a clean towel and let cool.
