Hello,  I'm Emma

and I am the food and flavour lover that created this Blog. I'm so pleased you're here!

 

Have a nosey around for some recipes that I find delicious (even if I do say so myself) and some meal inspiration. Or feel free to look at photos of food and drool. I do that a lot, probably too much.

 

I like to think that this is a balanced mixture of health and indulgence. That's how life should be, right?

Chelsea Bun Loaf

Deliciously sweet and sticky Chelsea Buns with a beautiful marmalade shine and marmalade infused icing. Yep, you read all that correctly.


INGREDIENTS

Dough

3/4 Cup Warm Full Fat Milk (44c)

1 Sachet of Active Yeast

1/4 Cup Caster Sugar

1 Egg plus 1 Egg Yolk

1/4 Cup Butter (Melted)

3 Cups Bread Flour

Sprinkle of Salt


Filling

1/4 Cup Butter (Room Temperature)

100g Mixed Fruit

2tsp Mixed Spice

25g Brown Sugar


Topping

2tbs Marmalade (Melted)

150g Icing Sugar

2tbs Water

1tbs Marmalade


METHOD

- Firstly, its time to make the dough. Over a medium heat, bring the milk to a medium heat. A thermometer is useful here. You want it to be around 44c. Once it reaches that temperature, add the yeast and allow to sit.

- Now, melt your butter and add the sugar, eggs all together.

- Add the butter sugar mix to the milk and combine.

- If you have a mixer with a dough hook, that comes in really handy now! Into your mixer, add the wet mixture and tip in the flour and salt. Turn the mixer onto a medium speed and it will knead and beat the mixture for you and save you from kneading by hand. Leave it kneading for about 5 minutes.

- Once finished, add the dough into a well oiled bowl large enough to allow the mix to double in size. Cover it with clingfilm and a tea towel and leave in a warm area to prove.

- Whilst the dough proves, make the filling. Combine the sugar, fruit, mixed spice and butter and mix together. Leave to one side.

- After the dough has doubles in size (1-3 hours) remove from the bowl onto a floured surface or baking paper. Roll out into a large rectangle approximately 3/4cm thick.

- Next, sprinkle and spread the fruit butter mix over the flattened dough.

- Roll the dough up and cut 1 inch wide rolls.

- Place into a loaf tin and cover again for 20 minutes. Allowing to rise a little again.

- Bake in the oven at 180c/350f for 15/20 minutes.

- Whilst still hot, pour or brush the melted marmalade over the buns. This will give a sticky shine.

- Lastly, mix the icing sugar, water and marmalade and pour over the buns.

- ENJOY!
