• 1/2 cup lukewarm water
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 4 to 5 cups flour
  • 1 tbsp. anise seed
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 tbsp. light corn syrup


Sprinkle the yeast over the lukewarm water; stir until the yeast is dissolved.

Beat the eggs in a large mixing bowl with a fork until slightly beaten; add sugar, yeast mixture, salt, anise seed, butter, and 2 cups of flour.

Beat with electric beater until well beaten and smooth.

Stir in additional flour to make a soft dough. Turn out onto a well floured pastry board and knead until dough is soft and elastic. Do not add too much flour.

Place in a greased bowl and cover with a damp warm cloth. Allow to rise until double in bulk.

Punch down the dough and make a round loaf, smooth on top with the folded edges on the bottom of the loaf. Place in a deep round cake pan.

Beat the egg yolk with the corn syrup and brush the top with a pastry brush.

Bake in a preheated oven at 350°F for 15 minutes or until done.
