Tutti Fruitti bread

Tutti Fruitti bread 

I have loads of Bread recipe on my blog, this is one Bread that I always wanted to try as this is the Bread that we use buy from the Iyengar Bakery when I was young. We had a Bakery on our street corner, so we were aware of their Baking routine, so we will go and buy them as soon as they Bake them.


Maida or APF - 2.5 to 3.5 Cups (I used a little more than 3 Cups)
Warm Water - 1 Cup
Dry Instant Yeast - 1 Teaspoon
Salt - 1 Teaspoon
Sugar - 2-3 Tablespoon (I used 2 Tablespoon and it was mildly sweet, next time I will add 3 Tablespoon)
Butter or Olive Oil - 1 tablespoon (I used Butter, use Olive Oil for Vegan Version)

Tutti Frutti - 2-3 Tablespoons


  • In a mixing bowl, place the Warm Water and add Sugar to it and mix well. 
  • To this add the yeast and mix well and keep this aside for 10 minutes or till the yeast is activated.
  • To this add the butter, Flour, Salt and start kneading it.
  • Then add Tutti Frutti and Knead it for 10  inutes till you get a soft, pliable dough.
  • Depending on the quality of Maida, you may need anywhere between 2.5 Cups to 3 Cups.
  • Now place this in a bowl and smear some oil if required and cover with a damp cloth and allow it to double in size.
  • This may take 1-2 Hours depending on the climatic conditions.
  • After it has doubled in size, remove it from the bowl and place it on the clean kitchen counter dusted with some flour.
  • Punch the dough to get the air outside and start kneading the dough.
  • Knead it for about 5-8 minutes.
  • Now shape it into a loaf or bun or any desired shape.
  • Place the loaf /Bun in the Greased loaf/Baking tin and allow it rise for 45-60 Minutes.
  • This time also cover the Loaf with teh damp cloth.
  • After 45-60 minutes, pre heat the oven at 180C for 10 minutes and brush the top of the Bread with milk or Egg or Oil.
  • Bake the Bread at 180C for 30 minutes or till it is done.
  • Cool it to room temperature before slicing.
