    This is a fantastic Chelsea Bun recipe. Thank you Chefelaine. It tasted just like the ones we used to buy at the bakery in Alton, Ontario way back when. I used a mix of raisins, candied mix peel and walnuts for the filling. We have a slow oven so it ended up taking almost twice as long to cook (45 minutes). To verify that it was cooked, I used a thermometer and took the buns out when the temperature reached 190 degrees.
