Chelsea Buns


9oz Schar Bread Mix
3/4 oz brown sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp yeast
1 fl oz melted butter,
6 fl oz milk
2 fl oz warm water

Our new discovery Schar Gluten-Free Bread Mix makes great cinnamon rolls and chelsea buns.


Mix together, knead a little and roll out about 1/2″ thick. Spread with 1 oz. melted butter. Sprinkle with 1 oz brown sugar and 2 oz dried fruit.

Roll it up and slice into 8 or 9 slices and fit into a greased baking tin – with some space for expansion, but ideally not too much. Set aside for the dough to rise (covered with a cloth) which will probably take an hour or so (depending on the room temperature).

Heat the oven to 400F . Melt 1 tbsp honey, 1oz butter and 1oz sugar in a saucepan (and simmer for 1 minute) and then spoon the hot sticky glaze over the bins before placing them in the oven to bake for 20-30 minutes.

Cool in the tin for 10 minutes before turning them out – you want to catch the moment before the topping sticks to the tin, but after the point where it runs out of the buns when you turn them over.
