Instead of buying them from the shop, why not have a go at making your own Chelsea buns? They’re easy enough for kids to help, too!

Ingredients:
For the dough
250g strong plain flour
125g plain flour
15g caster sugar
7g dried yeast
1 tsp salt
125ml milk
150ml warm water
25g soft butter

For the filling
25g melted butter
1 tsp ground cinnamon
75g soft brown sugar
150g dried mixed fruit or just currants/sultanas
50g warmed honey to brush on top when cooked

Method:
1. Put both flours, yeast, salt, sugar, milk and half the water into your mixer and mix on a low speed until the dough pulls away from the side. Add a bit more water if needed, then add your soft butter and continue to mix until the dough is smooth.

2. Tip the dough into a large bowl and cover, then leave to prove until doubled in size.

3. When ready, preheat the oven to 180°C (160°C fan/gas mark 5). Tip the dough onto a lightly floured surface and roll into an even rectangle, squaring up the ends.

4. Spread the melted butter all over the dough.

5. Put your fruit, brown sugar and cinnamon in a bowl, mix well then sprinkle over the buttered dough.

6. Roll the dough up from the bottom (long side) to the top, squaring up the ends again. It should look like a long sausage shape.

7. Cut into nine even pieces and place cut side down in a lined seven inch square cake tin. Leave to prove until doubled in size again.

8. Pop in the oven for 20-25 minutes until golden brown.

9. Once removed from the oven, brush with the melted honey and leave to cool.
