Hello everyone, welcome to my latest recipe for Gluten and Dairy Free Christmas Chelsea Buns.

What a week it has been – total chaos.  First my laptop went bang, then I couldn’t get into the admin section of my website (thanks to Andrew for fixing), then found out I’m in hospital again next week having surgery on my hand.  Of course it is my right hand and I have everyone round to mine for Christmas dinner – I will definitely be relying on my Christmas helpers this year in the kitchen.  So this week has been a mixture of mad panic trying to finish up at work and get ready for Christmas before I’m out of action next week.  It has also been great fun though with a number of Christmas parties and catching up with friends along the way.

So in the midst of all my drama here is a lovely Christmas recipe for Christmas Chelsea buns filled with delicious mincemeat for that festive twist.
