Directions

  1. Preheat an oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 3 small loaf pans.
  2. Combine rye flour, baking soda, salt, buttermilk, brown sugar, white sugar, corn syrup, molasses, eggs, anise seed, and melted butter in a large bowl, and mix well.
  3. Scrape the batter into the prepared loaf pans, and bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 45 minutes. Remove pans from the oven, and cool on their sides for about 15 minutes before loosening the sides of the loaves from the pans. Remove the loaves, and finish cooling on a wire rack.

  • Editor's Note
  • You can use yogurt in place of the buttermilk, or make a buttermilk substitute by mixing 1 1/4 cups of milk with 4 teaspoons of white vinegar and allowing it to stand for 15 minutes.

Wonderful fullbodied taste, if you like rye bread, anise flavor & molasses you will love this bread, will for sure make again. Recipe made 4 mini Pampered Chef loaves and 1 reg. bread pan size loaf. Baked 35 min.....checked and they were done. Just be sure to do toothpick test.

This is like gingerbread, a dessert, rather than a quick bread. I replaced the corn syrup with honey. I cut the recipe in half, and spread it in a pie pan instead of baking in a loaf pan. It baked for 40 minutes. Oh! I will be making more of this real soon! Thanks for the recipe!

It would sure help to know the size of these "three small loaf pans". I have regular size and individual size [mini] loaf pans, but I don't know what small really means.

This bread is fantastic! I did use a few substitutions simply because I didn't have the ingredients on hand--I used all-purpose flour and maple syrup rather than rye flour and molasses--but really, I went with this recipe for the anise flavor. It was still delicious! Next time, though, I'll make a trip to the store. Thanks for a great recipe!

I replaced the buttermilk with low fat yogurt, the corn syrup with honey, replaced anise with orange peel. It was a hit at a gathering I went to. I served it with whipped butter. It is a little sticky but that's fine. and it sunk in the middle so the aesthetics aren't perfect
