This recipe from Sweet Laurel Bakery is perfect for popping in the oven on a lazy Sunday. We love it anytime of day — but especially for breakfast and afternoon tea. Once out of the oven, you’ll find its wafting aroma of saffron, cinnamon, and coconut draws every member of the house out of their corners and into the kitchen.

Ingredients for the Dough:

Ingredients for the Filling:

Directions:

  1. Begin by preheating the oven to 350º. Put coconut butter and coconut oil in a small bowl and place in freezer for about 5 minutes.
  2. Put coconut butter and coconut oil in a medium sized bowl. Add the almond flour, baking soda, pink salt, and saffron in the bowl. Stir together with a fork or pastry blender.
  3. Add the coconut or almond milk and stir until the batter is evenly mixed.
  4. Roll dough out, about ½ inch thick, between two layers of parchment paper into a rectangular shape. Set in the fridge while you prepare the filling.
  5. Prepare a 6-inch cake tin by greasing with coconut oil.
  6. To prepare filling, combine all ingredients (except for pistachios) in a food processor or blender.
  7. Remove mixture from blender.
  8. Pour mixture over rolled out crust and top with pistachios.
  9. Carefully roll dough into a log, like you would for pinwheel cookies. (We recommend puling away the parchment paper as you roll the dough into the log.)
  10. Cut 1-2 inch rounds of dough and place in the base of a greased cake tin.
  11. Bake for about 30-35 minutes, until golden and rolls are baked through.
  12. Remove from the oven and allow it to cool completely.
  13. Serve with your favorite hot beverage. We love it with our Warm Feelings Saffron Latte.
