Saffron Muffins for Advent

Today is what we in Sweden call the Second of Advent. Advent is a way of counting down to, and preparing for Christmas Eve. Advent starts on the fourth Sunday before the 24th of December, and on every Advent Sunday we light a candle on a special Advent candle stick.
Then you usually eat some kind of goodies!

Here in London I don't have an Advent candle stick, but I celebrated Advent by baking saffron muffins with marzipan inside, yum!
In winter I also like to gorge on clementines and oranges, and with some chocolate thrown in it wasn't a bad Second of Advent!
Happy Sunday everyone!
