Chelsea Buns

This week one of the themes for the Great British Bake Off, and hence the Great Bloggers Bake Off, is sweet buns. I decided to make Chelsea Buns simply because I've not made them before and I fancied making something different. I used the recipe in my Kenwood Chef recipe book which you can see here - Kenwood Chef recipes. I use the mixer and dough hook to make my bread dough which certainly makes the whole bread making process much more manageable.

Making Chelsea Buns

Because I hadn't made them before and my recipe book didn't have any good photos of the process of actually making the buns I found a video on-line to give me an idea of how the dough needed to be rolled out, filled and rolled up. Unfortunately the one that I used is no longer available, but I'd definitely recommend looking one up to help!

I needed to buy most of the ingredients for these buns, so I'm expecting to be making several more batches over the next few weeks! With these buns I have also ticked another item off my Day Zero Project list - to bake five different types of bread. More on that to follow!

I'm joining in with the Great Bloggers Bake Off, hosted each week by The Crazy Kitchen and Mummy Mishaps, and inspiring so many people to create some truly fantastic baked goods!

    1. Thank you! I struggled to make a rectangle, I sort of pushed it into shape, so some of the edges were a bit thicker than the others. I can't see how you can make a neat one without cutting away (and wasting) the excess dough!

  3. They look great - I had a go at a blueberry version today and didn't manage as many layers in my roll :)
