Tutti Frutti Bread Eggless
Bread is a perennial favourite. These days, soup and some rustic bread are practically all I eat. Making my own buns on weekends gives me a lot of pleasure. Coffee is another popular drink. Tutti frutti bread, for example, is a delicious treat. It’s delicious on its own or with butter. Fruit bread and fruit buns are a favourite among both children and adults. In a matter of minutes, this Tutti Frutti Bread Eggless recipe is gone. We’ve also added flax seeds to this bread, which helps to boost the nutrient content. Although we used ordinary flour to keep the bread white as per tradition, we have included some flax seeds to it so that it is more nutritious.
It’s delicious as a snack, whether you like it with tea or not. Fruit peels and colourful dried papaya fragments go to town on cakes. You may also make a cake, biscotti, or delicious ice cream. We adore making treats with them. While baking with them, I always end up eating them raw as well.
Tutti frutti bread memories
Irani chai, or bread and pav, has long been a part of Mumbai culture. Goodluck cafe for countless cups of Irani chai and catching up with my best buddy at Mt Mary. What a day, eh? Bakeries in the south were always open. I loved visiting Iyengar bakeries. The best part was that they didn’t contain eggs. Hot trays of Dilkhush buns or Dilpasand and patties filled tiny stores. Tutti Frutti Bread Eggless is special to so many!
I always keep Brown bakery’s bread in mind. Fresh, wrapped in brown paper, and without the use of plastic. When bread bakes, there is something unique about it.
I’ve always loved the scent of freshly baked bread as I pass through the bakery.
In those days, when I was a youngster, my father would always stop his car at Brown bakery for fresh bread in crisp brown paper. It’s still one of my most cherished food memories. Growing up in the quiet seaside town of Vizag provided me with a lot of simple pleasures.
How to increase fibre in your homemade bread?
There are a number of methods for enhancing the fibre content in home-made bread using basic flour.
- Use flour rich in fibre, such as whole-wheat flour/atta. In this instance, you might need to increase the amount of yeast by 20% and use a bit more water/oil because this flour is heavier than plain flour.
- Add additional additives such as flaxseed meal or wheat bran. 1 cup of plain flour contains around 3.4 gms of fibre compared to 11 gms in 1 cup of wholemeal flour. 1 tablespoon of flax seeds contains around 2 gms of fibre. So the addition of 3 tablespoons of flax seeds to plain flour can help you get similar fibre content as wholemeal flour.
- Use a combination of the above 2 as done in the below recipe.
