Home Sweet Home Bakealong 25: Chocolate Hazelnut Buns

May 2, 2015


cinnamon chocolate hazelnut chelsea buns

Somewhere under the icing there’s a bun

Like Chelsea buns only with nuts and cream cheese icing according to what shall henceforth be known as the hummingbird equation:

Normal recipe + nuts + extra icing  = hummingbird recipe

Pretty yum. Could happily have had it without the icing. Next week we continue the nut run with cinnamon pecan twists.

1tsp salt
85g unsalted butter, cubed [or use salted and omit the salt above]

For the filling
50g unsalted butter, softened
100g caster sugar [I used soft brown as I though it would be nicer]

    I love these but would probably drop the cream cheese icing… Still anything with hazelnuts gets my vote. Thanks for linking with #CookBlogShare
