    Ingredients:

    Serves: 12-16

    Yield:

    loaves

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Dissolve the yeast in 1/4 cup of the water. Add the honey (or sugar) and let stand until foamy, about 5 to 10 minutes.
    2. 2
      Add the remaining water, oil, anise, salt, and 2 cups of the flour to a large bowl. Gradually stir in the remaining flour until the mixture holds together.
    3. 3
      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.
    4. 4
      Punch down the dough and divide in half. Shape each piece into a ball, cover, and let rest for about 10 minutes.
    5. 5
      Sprinkle a large baking sheet with cornmeal or fine semolina (or you can grease the baking sheet). Flatten each dough ball into a 6-inch round. Some cooks flute the outer edge, others leave it plain; it's your choice. Place the rounds on the prepared baking sheet, cover, and let.
    6. 6
      Preheat the oven to 375°F.
    7. 7
      Pierce the dough around the sides with the tines of a fork or a toothpick. Beat egg whites with water, and brush the tops of the loaves with the egg white mixture. Then lightly sprinkle the top of the loaf with the sesame seeds.
    8. 8
      Bake at 375° until golden brown and hollow-sounding when tapped, about 30 minutes. Transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

      Anise is a very potent licorice flavor to anyone who might be unaware. When baking this recipe the flavor of the anise doesn't so much "bake out" but it is lessened by a considerable amount, yet there is a slight licorice flavor there. I myself am not fond of the flavor, yet the bread was quite good! Smells just like normal bread... Had comments on it tasting like "Rye"...<br/><br/>A very dense and heavy bread, sesame seeds add a nice finish to it. <br/><br/>Recommend cutting it into small chunks considering how dense it is. Always pair with a nice drink to help wash it down.
