 I have  adapted this recipe  from Nytimes . Method used to prepare this cake is assembling dry & wet ingredients separately. And then mixing both.Use of saffron is optional . Vanilla extract can be used instead. But as we are bit partial towards saffron, many of my bakes includes saffron for flavoring.  I have used a 6″inch pan to bake this cake.
