Anise Bread

Anise Bread
Recipe type: Bread
These Anise Bread are done in a traditional Moroccan food recipe.
  • 1 tbsp active dry yeast
  • 1⅓ cup warm water
  • 1 tsp sugar (or honey)
  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 2½ tsp anise seeds
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 4 cup flour
  • 1 egg white, beaten
  • 1 tsp water
  • 3 tbsp sesame seeds
  1. Dissolve the yeast in ¼ cup of the water. Add the sugar or honey and let stand 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. Add the remaining water, oil, anise, salt, and 2 cups of the flour.
  3. Gradually stir in the remaining flour until the mixture holds together.
  4. On a lightly floured surface, knead the dough until smooth and elastic, about 10 minutes. Place in a greased bowl, turning to coat. Cover loosely with a towel or plastic wrap and let rise at room temperature until double in bulk, about 1-1/2 hours.
  5. Divide in dough half. Shape each piece into a ball, cover, and let rest for 10 minutes.
  6. Grease a baking sheet and flatten each dough ball into a 6-inch round. Place the rounds on the prepared baking sheet, cover and let sit 10 minutes.
  7. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
  8. Prick the dough around the sides with the tines of a fork or a toothpick. Brush the tops of the loaves with the egg white and lightly sprinkle with the sesame seeds.
  9. Bake until golden brown and hollow-sounding when tapped, about 30 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
