Eggless Tutti Fruitti Whole Wheat Milk Buns

The end of the year 2013, was a very difficult one for me. I was loaded with lots and lots of work at the office front. Also, my little S was down with fever due to season change and to top it all the hubby dearest had to be away for a couple of days because of sudden demise of a close relative. So, in a nutshell, it was chaos with a capital C. Finally, today I got up the strength to bake something nice before the 31st. These sweet milk buns can be had at any time of the day/night. They are easy to make and store well. Excellent finger-food for kids!

Without further ado, lets get to the recipe.


Flour: 3 and a half cups
Whole Wheat flour: 3 cups
Active Dry Yeast: 1 tablespoon
Salt: 1 teaspoon
Milk: 2 cups
Sugar:1/4th cup
Oil/butter: 1/4th cup
Tutti fruit: a handful
For decoration:
Chocolate sauce: 3 tablespoons
Colored small candy: for sprinkling


1. Take warm milk in a deep-bottom bowl. Add sugar to the milk. Sprinkle yeast on top.
2. Now add salt and mix once. Add the tutti frutti.
3. Now start adding flour and whole wheat flour alternately. You may need to add some more flour depending on the amount of moisture in the air.
4. Once the mixture forms a solid lump. Now add butter to this mixture. Keep kneading till you get a firm, smooth dough. Keep adding sprinkles of dry flour if the dough gets too sticky.
5. Grease a deep-bottom bowl and dunk the dough in it. Keep the bowl in a dry, warm place for one hour. In one hour, the dough will rise to double its size.
6. Now punch the dough and knead it once more. Divide the dough into small balls. Grease a cup-cake mold and place the balls into the molds.

 7. Keep the cupcake mold undisturbed for another 20 minutes. The balls of dough will appear puffed up.
8. Now preheat the oven to 200 degrees C. Bake the buns for 10 minutes.
9. Once the buns are done, grill the buns for 5 minutes in Grill mode.
10. Take the buns out of the oven. Brush with milk/butter.
11. Cool to room temperature. Pour a spoonful of chocolate sauce over each bun and sprinkle with coloured candies.

12. Serve and enjoy.
