I used this recipe on the dough cycle of my bread machine and left out the anise seed. I also used bread machine yeast rather than active dry yeast. Dough was divided into 3 ropes; braided it; placed it on parchment lined cookie sheet; covered it with a teatowel and let it rise in slightly warmed oven for approximately 3/4 hour until double in sie. Baked it in a 375 Deg F. oven for 35 minutes. After cooling, covered with icing made of milk, icing sugar and lemon juice. Makes an extremely large loaf. Excellent results.
