  • 100 g butter
  • 1/2 g saffron (1 packet)
  • 100 g white chocolate
  • 170 g Dansukker Fairtrade Organic Cane Sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 100 ml turkish yoghurt
  • 120 g flour
  • 3 g baking powder
  • 1 pinch salt


  • whipping cream
  • frozen lingonberries

Heat the oven to 200°C using top and bottom heat.

Grease a rectangular, loose-bottomed cake tin, approx. 13 x 36 cm.

Melt the butter and add the saffron. Chop the chocolate and stir it into the butter to make a smooth paste. Add the sugar and whisk well. Then add the eggs, one at a time, and the turkish yoghurt. Mix together.

Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl and fold them into the butter mixture. Pour the mixture into the tin and bake at the centre of the oven for 13-14 minutes. Allow to cool completely.

Serve with whipped cream and lingonberries.
