If you saw my Coconut Shortbread Cookie post, then you’ll know that this is the second of three coconut flavoured recipes that I photographed for my blog. What can I say? I’m Trinidadian – I love coconut!
These Chelsea Buns are loaded with Caribbean flavours like coconut, allspice, and Angostura Bitters. They are sweet, aromatic, and go great with a cup of tea. Unlike traditional Chelsea buns, these don’t need to be buttered.
My mom and I made two different versions here. One with mixed fruit and one with cinnamon butter. You can use any fruit that you would add to fruitcake, but I think glacé cherries are a must! The fruit we used is actually preserved… my family has a tradition of keeping a glass jar full of mixed dried fruit covered with cherry brandy in our pantry. It comes in handy for recipes like this one.
Do you have a special holiday breakfast recipe? Let me know in the comments
