Tutti Frutti Bun | Bakery Style Sweet Bun

Tutti Frutti Bun, a mildly sweetened bun that tastes great with a cup of tea/coffee. It's more or less similar to the sweet buns that are available in South Tamilnadu tea/bakery shops. When i made tutti frutti from watermelon rind,  had few recipes in mind to try it out and this sweet bun is one among them.

 Watermelon tutti frutti tastes so similar to the traditional ones made with raw papaya and couldn't find any difference in taste and texture in baked goods. As for the buns,I have used the Tangzhong method and it never fails to impress me. As expected,the bun turned out soft and fluffy.To know more about Tangzhong method, check out my pav bread where i had explained a little more.

During this quarantine time, i have been baking a lot and trying out all the baked goods that i had wanted to try and also from the bookmarks that are left untouched over years. It's been a while since i had bought a loaf of bread from store. Baking all the time seems overwhelmed at times, but most of the time it's so relaxing. More than cakes and muffins, i love to bake bread, buns and savory bakes, typically anything with yeasted dough !!

Ok, coming back to today's recipe, you can bake this bun without tutti frutti also, but keep in mind that the bun is very mildly sweetened so adding tutti frutti helps to enhance the sweet flavor a bit more, so i would highly recommend to add them. Now let's check out how to make this super fluffy sweet bun !!

  • While preparing the roux, make sure to stir it continuously, it tends to clump together at the bottom quickly.
  • Cool the roux completely before use it in the dough.
  • Kneed the dough well  to get that soft , smooth & non-sticky dough. 
  • Add more or less of tutti frutti as per your liking.
  • For more sweetness, you can add extra 1 tbsp of sugar.
  • Adding little sugar in the milk for brushing the top of the bun helps to get that dark color on the top.
  • While brushing the top of the bun with milk, don't over do it, otherwise, the milk drips and make the bun sticks to the pan and it's hard to remove from the pan once baked
