Tutti Frutti Bread

How many of us have had a chance to eat this bread in our younger days? I remember my father buying this fro a local Bangalore Iyengar Bakery and it was a treat for us kids then:-). I remember even picking all those coloured fruit bits from the bread first to relish and then eat the rest of the bread. On a blog hopping spree I found this perfect recipe from My singapore kitchen and when it was decided that bread baking would be the theme for week i of Avant Garde Cookies, I knew i would bake this!!
