I would be the first person to make the call that what you see in the photograph above is not a true Chelsea Bun.
It was a “Chelsea” Bun from Morrisons. Made from bread it had dried fruit and cinnamon and was topped with a sugar glaze and sugar crystals.
As you can probably guess it wasn’t anything to write home about. It lacked freshness, it was too sugary and the cinnamon was somewhat misplaced and overpowering.
This wasn’t a delight, much more a cloying and unsatisfying experience, one not to be repeated.
