Our Disclaimer (The serious stuff)

By using our free meal planner (and the rest of spoonacular.com) you have to agree that you and only you are responsible for anything that happens to you because of something you have read on this site or have bought/cooked/eaten because of this site. After all, the only person who controls what you put in your mouth is you, right?

Spoonacular is a recipe search engine that sources recipes from across the web. We do our best to find recipes suitable for many diets — whether vegetarian, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, etc. — but we cannot guarantee that a recipe's ingredients are safe for your diet. Always read ingredient lists from the original source (follow the link from the "Instructions" field) in case an ingredient has been incorrectly extracted from the original source or has been labeled incorrectly in any way. Moreover, it is important that you always read the labels on every product you buy to see if the product could cause an allergic reaction or if it conflicts with your personal or religious beliefs. If you are still not sure after reading the label, contact the manufacturer.

We also attempt to estimate the cost and calculate the nutritional information for the recipes found on our site. Again, we cannot guarantee the accuracy of this information. Additionally, our nutrition visualizer that suggests that you limit sodium, sugar, etc., and get enough protein, vitamins, and minerals is not intended as medical advice. Similarly, our health tips are based on articles we have read from various sources across the web, and are not based on any medical training. The team behind spoonacular does not possess any medical qualifications and the information may be found to be incorrect or out of date based on future research. If you need help planning your diet or determining which foods (and recipes) are safe for you, contact a registered dietitian, allergist, or another medical professional.

Instructions

  1. Combine the milk and saffron threads, and heat in a pan or in the microwave until warm. Let cool for 10 minutes.
  2. Melt the butter in the microwave or in a separate pan, and allow to cool before stirring it into the milk.
  3. Sift the flour into a bowl. Add the sugar, baking powder and salt, and mix with a wooden spoon.
  4. Add the yeast and mix.
  5. Stir in the milk and sour cream. Bring together to form a dough.
  6. Lightly flour your working surface, tip the dough and knead until smooth and elastic, about 5 minutes.
  7. Put the dough back in the bowl, cover with Clingfilm and leave to rise in a warm spot for 1 hours or until it has doubled in size.
  8. Grease two baking trays, or line them with baking paper.
  9. Tip the dough onto a lightly floured surface and knock it back in one or two punches.
  10. Divide into 12 equal pieces (mine were about 80g/2,8 oz. each).
  11. Roll out each piece into a 25 cm/10 in. cylinder and roll each end in so as to form and S shape.
  12. Place on the baking sheets and add a raisin into the centre of each of the two eyes of the rolls.
  13. Cover with a towel and let rise for 45 minutes, or until the buns have doubled in size again.
  14. Preheat the oven to 220C/425F.
  15. Beat the egg and brush over the buns.
  16. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown.
  17. Cool on a wire rack before serve warm with cold milk, hot chocolate or a cup of glgg (mulled wine).
  18. Enjoy!

Tips

Health Tips

  • Although the body needs salt to survive, most of us get too much. The problem with consuming too much salt (what chemists call "sodium chloride") is actually the sodium part, which is why people concerned about high blood pressure go on low-sodium diets. If you are trying to reduce salt in your diet, you can try salt substitutes like potassium chloride or try to make do with less salt by using more black pepper, herbs, and spices.

  • If you're following a gluten-free diet, be sure to find a brand with gluten-free bread flour.

  • Studies have shown people who drink full fat milk are thinner than those who drink low-fat or fat-free milk instead. Keep that in mind before you decide to swap. If you want to go dairy free, however, you can replace milk with unsweetened soy milk in most recipes.

Price Tips

  • Most dairy products stay good well past their sell-by date. Instead of throwing out perfectly safe food that is just a few days or maybe even a week or two old, make sure the product smells fine, has a normal texture, and doesn't taste funny. Sniff testing isn't exactly rocket science and it can keep you from wasting food (and money).

  • Dried fruit can be expensive, especially if you opt for organic. Your own dehydrator could be a great investment if you eat dried fruits regularly!

Cooking Tips

  • If you're baking with raisins, you can add them to hot water for 10 minutes or so to plump them up, then drain. You can also use some of the flour the recipes calls for to coat the raisins before mixing them into the dough so they won't all end up at the bottom.

  • If you've had your baking powder for awhile, make sure it's still going to work by mixing it with a little water. If it doesn't fizz, you need to replace it.

Green Tips

  • To avoid antibiotics, hormones, and other nasties in your milk, choose organic whenever possible. If you can't afford organic, look for milk labeled hormone and antibiotic free. It is often less expensive.
