Chelsea Buns

Sokehah Cheah | 9:42 PM | |

The advent of the Breadmaker has certainly helped making bread, a breeze, taking away the tedious task of mixing and kneading the dough.  I used the Breadmaker to churn out this dough for these Chelsea Buns.

Sweet, crunchy top and soft, fluffy inside  ...................  mmmmm

Recipe for Chelsea Buns

Ingredients :
Dough Cycle - 1 hr.30 mins
  • 1 egg + water to make up 1 cup - 250 ml
  • Butter/Margarine - 3 Tbsp
  • Salt - 1/2 Tsp
  • High Protein Flour - 410 gm
  • Skim Milk powder - 2 Tbsp
  • Brown Sugar - 3 Tbsp
  • Yeast - 2 Tsp
Filling :
  • 1 oz Butter/Margarine
  • 1 oz Brown Sugar
  • 1/2 Tsp Cinnamon
  • 2 oz Sultanas/Raisins
  • Additional Brown Sugar for sprinkling, before baking
Method :
  1. At the end of the dough cycle, turn the dough onto a floured surface, knock back the dough to expel some air.
  2. Roll or stretch it out into an oblong.  Spread the butter over the top 2/3 of the dough and then fold from the bottom up, in 3 folds, making sure there's butter between each fold.
  3. Roll out again to about 18 ins. square, sprinkle with the sugar, cinnamon, sultanas and roll up like a Swiss Roll.
  4. Cut the roll into twelve, 1.1/2 in. slices and put them close together, cut side down in a lightly greased 8 in. square tin.
  5. Cover with a damp cloth or a lightly greased cling film, set in a warm place to prove for about 20 to 30 minutes, or until double in bulk.
  6. Sprinkle with more brown sugar, and bake in a preheated oven, middle shelf, @ 190 deg C for about  20 minutes.
Note :  These buns are best eaten on the day made.

    This recipe, I used the breadmaker, so there's a dough cycle. If you don't have a breadmaker, then you use the mixer. Look up my other bread/bun recipes that use the mixer. Happy trying!
