“Chelsea” Bun

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.

Cherry Tart

So there I was in Druckers buying a coffee and decided to have something sweet to go with it. I did think about a chocolate eclair (or even a coffee eclair) but in the end decided to try the cherry tart.

It was a bit like a Bakewell Tart in the sense that the filling that the cherries had been placed (or stuck) was a frangipan, an almond filling.

It was okay, but nothing to shout home about, and certainly wouldn’t be on my list the next time I go to Druckers. Basically it lacked flavour, the cherries did not taste very much of cherries and the almond filling had a hint of almond, but was quite bland.

Next time, I’ll go for the chocolate eclair.
