Chelsea Bun

The Chelsea bun  is a type of currant bun  that was first created in the eighteenth century at the Bun House in Chelsea, London, an establishment favoured by royalty and demolished in 1839. The bun is made of a rich yeast dough flavoured with lemon peel, cinnamon or a sweet spice mixture. Prior to being rolled into a square spiral shape the dough is spread with a mixture of currants, brown sugar and butter. 
This was the most delicious we had ever eaten...bought at the local Farmers Market.

Looks delicious although I prefer my buns with apples. I definitely wouldn't say no to this one, especially if it was hot.
