Thursday Cottage's Marmalade Chelsea Buns

(Recipe to make 9 Marmalade Chelsea Buns)marmaladechelseabuns.jpg






Place the dough ingredients in a large bowl and mix to a smooth dough. Turn onto a floured surface and knead until the mixture is springy.  Alternatively, knead in a food mixer for roughly 5 minutes.  Place the dough to a lightly oiled bowl and cover with cling film.  Leave in a warm place for up to 1.5 hours until it has doubled in size.

On a floured surface knock back the dough, pressing out to a rectangle approximately 20cm x 25cm.  Spread the marmalade over the surface, sprinkle over the currants, walnuts and the mixed spice.  From the shortest side, tightly roll to form a sausage shape then slice into pieces roughly 20cm thick.  Put the slices cut side up in the prepared baking tin.  Set aside in a warm place for 45-60 minutes to rise.  Meanwhile, reheat the oven to 200°C/Fan 180°/Gas Mark 6.

Bake for approximately 20-25 minutes until nicely golden. Whilst still warm, brush with the icing. Remove from the tin and enjoy!
