There was a time when I used to make Chelsea buns on a regular basis, I loved the soft bread and the sweet buttery currants inside, I would top them off with a glace icing. I thought it was time to give them a revival and try and make them more heart healthy.
I got the basic recipe from a cookbook, but here’s Paul Hollywood’s recipe if you want to try them.
I’ve made a lot of heart healthy cakes where the butter is substituted with stewed apples so that’s what I did, and I omitted the sugar from the filling, but I did add cinnamon.
Once the filling is spread on the rolled out dough you roll it up like a swiss roll.
Then slice into catherine wheels and then leave to prove.
