Tutti Frutti

This was meant to look like a leaf :) Bought the mould from Crate & Barrel. Not too sure if it was meant for buns, all I knew was I thought it looked pretty. Hence, it travelled all the way from California to settle down in this humble kitchen of mine. Doesn't look like a leaf? A little maybe, with those jagged edges? The bun rose so much that it had to swell up from the centre, causing it to lose its leaf shape. I guess one just can't have everything. I rather have it soft and fluffy than just a nice shape? Actually I made 2 of these leaf shape ones only, the rest were round, so shape wasn't an issue after all :)

This is a tutti frutti bun. They were loaded with dried fruits (raisins, cranberries, blueberries and orange zest), with some orange juice, topped with pistachio plus streusel topping. It was yummy. This bread was also made using the sponge dough method, giving it a very soft and fluffy texture.

Recipe was adapted from Alex Goh.
