swedish saffranspannkaka saffron cake


it’s a swedish specialty from a island called gotland that my father's from. it's not a pancake--it's actually a saffron and rice porridge that is given the addition of almonds, cream, and eggs and poured in a dish and baked in the oven. it’s served with whipped cream and a jam made from a special berry from the island called salmbar but mulberry is a good substitute. it should not be to dry or to moist = lagom in swedish--it means just right. it can be served slightly warm or cold. i love it, hope you enjoy!!
