The Chelsea bun was first created in the eighteenth century at the Bun House in Chelsea, an establishment favoured by Hanoverian royalty and demolished in 1839.
The bun is made of a rich yeast dough flavoured with lemon peel, cinnamon or a sweet spice mixture. Prior to being rolled into a square spiral shape the dough is spread with a mixture of currants, brown sugar and butter. A sweet glaze covering is added before the rolled-up dough is sliced into individual buns and baked. The process of making this bun is very similar to that involved in producing the cinnamon roll.
I've got the recipe from a cook book come with my kitchen machine... The outcome is surprisingly better than I expected.. It's terribly good !
Since it's created to be used with a machine , but for anyone who doesn't have one or bother to give it a try with hands ,then I'd like to recommend a good recipe (which is similar to the one I used) from the blog of Khun Angielicious who is a bride-to-be ! Please have a look at the link below..
