Mad about the Kernow Curl

Mad about the Kernow Curl

At Baker Tom's, we often get asked about the eye-catching and indulgent treat known as the Kernow Curl. People can't help but be intrigued by its appearance! So, let's shed some light on this mouthwatering delight. The Kernow Curl is our own delectable take on the classic Chelsea bun, and once you taste it, you'll understand why it captivates the senses.

Origins of the Kernow Curl:
The traditional currant bun, which inspired the creation of the Kernow Curl, can be traced back to the early 1700s. It was born in the famous Chelsea Bun House and became incredibly popular, with rumour it sometimes caused to near-riots when it was sold out. 

Delicious Details:
Our Kernow Curl takes the irresistible elements of the Chelsea bun and elevates them to new heights of deliciousness. The dough is infused with a delightful blend of mixed peel, currants, lemon, and cinnamon. But the magic happens when a sugary brown sugar paste is swirled into the dough, creating a sticky and sweet delight that is sure to satisfy your cravings.

Best Way to Indulge:
To truly savour the Curl experience, we recommend lightly heating it in the oven, allowing the sweet aromas to permeate your kitchen. Once warm, serve it with generous lashings of double cream. The combination of the warm, sticky bun and the cool, creamy cream is a match made in dessert heaven.

Whether enjoyed as a comforting treat on a chilly afternoon or as a show-stopping dessert for a special occasion, the Kernow Curl is sure to delight your taste buds and leave you wanting another bite. Shop here
