Chelsea Buns

I know I have been missing in action for soooooo long..........!!  Well I did done some cooking and baking delicious cakes, but unfortunately I was just too busy (or I should said lazy too) to take out my camera to take shots at it.

Today I have baked this Chelsea Buns (also known as Cinnamon Rolls).  I have been searching for this recipe for quite awhile until I saw Wendy of Table for 2......or more and I know I will make this very soon too.  After finished baking this, I get everyone to taste it but my sister asked me have I taken any photo of it yet?  I told her just be with it and to dig it but she insist me to post it in my blog so that she can view it next time to bake it too.  So here with........

1.  Mix everything together and knead till it is no longer sticky and becomes smooth.
2.  Cover and let it rest for 1 hour or till doubled.

5.  Mix the cinnamon powder with both the sugars; set aside.
6.  Place dough on working surface and roll out into a large rectangle.

     Sprinkle with dried fruits.
8.  Roll it up, tightly and cut it into 9 pieces.
9.  Arrange the rolls into the baking dish.  Cover and let it proof (no need double).
10. While waiting for the buns to proof, preheat oven to 150C (fan assisted) or 170C.
      Bake for 25 minutes till golden.
11. Remove from oven and brush golden syrup generously over the buns and sprinkle
      the brown sugar, if you preferred.  Let buns cool for 10 minutes and remove out.

Delicious when it is still warm and of course great having it with a cup of my favourite TEA!! 


  1. Hi Mel, good to see you back in action.
    Very delicious chelsea bun, my favorite too.
    Yours look so neat.

    Have a nice day.

    1. Hi Amelia,
      This type of buns is my favourite. You should try it.

  2. I like this bread but I know my kids will not appreciate the cinnamon taste. I only can bake this when they grow a bit older, hehehe . My previous Swedish boss' s wife best in making this bun.

    1. My little niece doesn't even wanted to give it a try too.....

  3. The British calls it this way, glazed with sugar or syrup/honey instead of those fancy frostings, and must be filled with currants (or other fruits mixed with currants).
    But Americans will gladly call them cinnamon buns, kekekeke.

    1. I loves this buns filled up with dried fruits in it instead of just plain cinnamon buns. Makes it more richer. Delicious!

  4. Wow this looks good too! I'm drooling.......

  5. Perfect snack or even breakfast... My kids will be so happy if they see it. THey love raisins and cinnamon in pastries!
