Chelsea Buns

To my mind, with Lardy Cake (and Worcestershire Dripping Cake) the king of pastries. If I were a Little Englander I would blame the Belgian Bun and the Danish Pastry for their disappearance from mainstream bakers and Cafes. 

Occasionally, they have them at the British Library Cafe and Cafe Oto. 

Fragrant as honey and sweeter in taste!
As flaky and white as if baked by the light,
As the flesh of an infant soft, doughy and slight.
