unbleached all-purpose flour
1 1/2 teaspoons
active dry yeast
I doubled the recipe and made a traditional loaf and the loaf shape described here. The bread has an unusual taste because of the anise seed and is kind of like eating soft pizzelles. I think I would add more raisins next time to better balance the anise taste. The crust is chewy without being crisp and is very nice. It's definitely an out of the ordinary bread. I served it with homemade butter.
I don't normally care for anise, but I enoy it in this bread. In my home we make this bread for St. Joseph Day, March 19!
This a great-tasting bread and very easy to make. I will be making it again this year on Mar.19, in honor of St. Joseph. It is a tradition in the small Western NY town I grew up in.
Very good bread!
