Chelsea buns

Who doesn't love a Chelsea bun?, filled with mixed fruit, nutmeg and cinnamon! Absolutely fantastic,

This recipe is one I'll be cooking on the Worlds first 24hour cooking show on Simply Good Food TV, Give them a go, they're so easy to make

This recipe will make 9 buns


For the Dough mix

10g dried instant yeast

350g plain flour

50g caster sugar

pinch salt

50g butter or margarine

1 egg

100ml lukewarm milk

50ml lukewarm water

For the buns mix

50g butter

50g caster sugar

150g dried mixed fruit

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

2 tablespoons golden syrup

For the icing

icing sugar



Mix flour, sugar, salt and yeast together

Lightly rub in the butter till the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

Beat egg and add to the dry ingredients with the milk, while mixing.

Add water as necessary to form a smooth dough.

Knead the dough well for 10 minutes until smooth and elastic.

Cover the bowl with greased cling film and leave in a warm place to rise for 30 minutes.

Knock back dough and roll out into a 30x25cm rectangle.

Spread the butter onto the dough and sprinkle over the sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg and dried fruit.

Roll up loosely like a swiss roll. Cut into 9 equal slices and arrange slices onto a greased 23cm square tin. Cover with greased aluminium foil and leave to rise for 30 minutes.

Preheat the oven to 190 C / Gas 5.

Bake for 20 minutes, or until risen and golden.

Brush with syrup while still hot. (For a real treat, make a thin icing by combining icing sugar with a little water, and drizzle over buns).

Now you can wait till they are cool!!! But to be honest I can't wait that long!! And they are absolutely delicious served warm
