Almond and Tutti Frutti Quick Bread - with Whole Wheat Flour

It feels so great when we do a recipe with healthy ingredients and it tastes awesome and folks at home do not find out that it has lot of healthy ingredients in it.. I always have a hard time convincing folks to eat when I declare that it is made with millets or whole grains. Now when I sneak them in and they do not know and they like it, I am happy.. Slowly I declare (only if asked) that the healthy ingredients are in them... I first made this quick bread with all purpose flour and the post is here and then in a few days made it with whole wheat flour..
Whole Wheat Flour - 1 cup
Almond Powder - 1/4 cup
Baking Powder - 1 tea spoon
Baking Soda - 1/2 tea spoon
Ghee - 3 table spoons
Condensed Milk - 1/2 cup + 2 table spoons
Flaked Almonds - 2 table spoons for garnish
Milk - 1/2 cup (adjust as needed)
Tutti Frutti - 1/2 cup
Almond Essence - 2 drops
Salt - A pinch
MethodPreheat the oven to 180 degrees C
Grease a loaf tin and set aside. I used 2 mini loaf tins and 1 ramekin.
Sieve together whole wheat flour, almond powder, baking powder, baking soda, salt and mix it until uniform and set this aside
In a separate bowl, cream ghee, essence and condensed milk till it becomes light and fluffy
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and add milk little by little to get dropping consistency batter.
Add the tutti frutti and fold them in and transfer the mixture to the prepared tin.
Sprinkle the flaked almonds on top and tap the tin on the counter a few times to even them out and also to remove the air bubbles
Bake for 25 minutes and then lower the temperature to 165 degrees C and bake for another 10 minutes until the toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean
Cool it in the tin for 5 minutes and cool completely on a wire rack before slicing
If storing in the fridge for later use, then allow it to cool completely and wrap the entire loaf (without slicing into pieces) with plastic wrap and store in the fridge " "
