"I own two bread machines and love to come up with different recipes to try in them," writes Diane Widner of Blue Island, Illinois. "This golden loaf, with its tasty combination of anise and almond flavors, is especially nice to serve during the holidays."
"The original recipe for this bread was printed in the cookbook that came with my bread machine," relates Florence Lowe of Zanesville, Ohio. "I liked it so much, I added some seasonings to produce a loaf similar in flavor to a focaccia bread I like."
