As a new variation, I like to substitute pie cherries and white chocolate chips in place of the raisins. It makes for a great dessert bread that isn't too sweet. I'm glad you all liked the recipe.

I now do my batter and dough in my bread machine. After I have rolled out the dough I place each bun in the pan. The next step is my variation: I heat the oven at 350º for 2 minutes and stop. Then I place a pan of water inside the oven. Then the pan goes into the warm oven and I let it sit for half an hour until it has risen. Then out comes the pan of water and I start baking. The water in the pan makes your bread come out so soft and silky!

WoW! Great recipe! I made these this morning and was really pleased with how the dough turned out -- will probably try this recipe with my other sweet yeast baking. Used buddyglb's topping and Monica's advice to double the topping. My family loved these!

This is a terrific recipe. Simple to follow and much easier to make than I first thought! I used buddyglb's adjustments and my chelsea buns turned out looking absolutely fabulous! I now make them on a steady basis, (weekly), as many customers really enjoy them. Buddy, my husband remembers the chelseas from Gravenhurst Bakery, and says that mine are just as good! I use glacee cherries and cashews on the top, and double up on the topping recipe. This makes them nice and gooey!

This is an interesting variation on the original Chelsea Bun recipie. The original itself is also a variation on the old Bath Bun recipies of long ago Chelsea England. In Gravenherst, Ontariao, near the Muskoga region, the Gravenherst Bakery is known for its authentic Chelsea, which is made in the form of a loaf, actually several sliced rolls laid together closely in a pan. The big difference is the use of currants vs raisons and 3/4 cup brown sugar, divided,instead of the white sugar called for here and topping prepared in the pan before laying in the slices. The topping is made with 1/2 cup brown sugar, 2 Tbs water, 2 Tbs butter all melter together and boiled for two minutes; pour in pan bottom, scatter with pecan halves and merischino cherry slices, then place slices of Chelsea and let raise to double in size again before baking. Flip over on sheet of aluminum foil when done. Also, authentic Chelsea is folded and rolled out into a rectagle twice, adding filling each time, before final roll up and slicing. The Gravenherst Barkery is gone now, but used to supply its Chelsea to the RMS Seguine which sailed tourists up Lake Ontario through he "Millionair's Row" of lakeside property. Try these modifications, you will love it!
