Saffron Brittle

by veronica

I love saffron, especially in any sort of candy.  This is an easy recipe for the classic brittle with thin almond flakes which really makes this sweet and crunchy brittle irresistible.


  • 75-gram vegan butter/margarine
  • 1 ½ dl oat cream or non-dairy cream
  • 0,5 gram saffron
  • 1 tbsp vanilla sugar
  • 4,5 dl sugar
  • 1 dl light syrup
  • 3-5 tbsp thin almond flakes
  • powder sugar


  1. Melt vegan butter in a pot.
  2. Add saffron and vanilla sugar and whisk together until evenly blended with the melted butter.
  3. Remove the pot from the heat.
  4. Add non-dairy cream and stir.
  5. Add sugar and syrup, stir and place the pot on the heat again.
  6. Bring to boil then reduce the heat while continuing to stir.
  7. Allow to cook on low heat for 10-15 minutes while stirring.
  8. Test the mixture by adding a dollop to a glass with cold water. If the sugar batter solidifies and stands up in the cold water, the brittle is ready.
  9. Remove the pot from the heat. Add almond flakes and stir.
  10. Pour the sugar batter onto a large tray covered with a sheet of baking paper.
  11. Let cool down and solidify.
  12. Once solid, smash the brittle to pieces or break it apart. Dust with powdered sugar and store in an airtight container in a dry place.
