I follow recipes EXACTLY as written. Unfortunately this one didn't say to oil the pans. It also didn't say to let the dough rise a second time before placing in the oven, which I didn't. Mine came out over cooked (just about burned, and I cooked it at a lower temp and shorter time). This brick-hard loaf will go to the dogs. If the recipe was a little more detailed, it might be worth the effort.


Light and moist. Rises well. Be careful not to spread too much of the egg whites in step 2. (Crust became very hard) Tried it w/o seed; substitute Walnuts and Anise Extract.


I ended up changing a lot about this recipe, and it still didn't taste that great. I used 4 cups wheat and 2 cups white flour, and cut the amount of anise seed to 2 tablespoons from 1/4 cup, as it's an expensive and strong spice. It still was too much anise and overpowers the taste of the wheat. Don't try this recipe, it's a waste of flour!
