A few tips:

  • Adjust the amount of saffron depending on how strong saffron taste you like. I used 50 g.
  • Raisins are optional but highly recommend! They add both a wonderful sweetness and makes the muffins more juicy and tender.
  • I used a silicon muffin pan when making these to avoid using paper tins. But you can use any muffin tins you like or have at home.
  • Let the muffins cool completely before removing them from the pan.
