These sweet buns are perfect served lightly buttered for tea. They take a little while to make, but are well worth the effort.

This is my mum’s recipe. She used to make them every Sunday for our afternoon tea when I was a child. These days I make it with a dough hook and it is so easy. It smells and taste absolutely delicious, especially with the apricot jam. I make it when friends come round for tea, garden parties and children's picnics.

During the 17th and 18th centuries, Londoners would flock to the 'Chelsea Bun House' on Pimlico Road to enjoy these soft, sweet and sticky fruited buns. This version is simple to make and taste fantastic. They are freezer friendly, so feel free to double the batch.

This was originally a normal Chelsea bun recipe but being the chocoholic that I am, I decided to spice up the taste with some chocolate in the middle. It has become my speciality as everyone at home just gobbles them up every time :)

A wonderful treat which isn't too sweet and sickly. These Chelsea buns are ideal for occasions such as Christmas or Mother's Day when you want something a little bit special.
