Anise Raisin Bread

Ingredients

  • 1 package (1/4 ounce) active dry yeast
  • 1/3 cup warm fat-free milk (110° to 115°)
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup orange juice
  • 1/3 cup butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange zest
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 teaspoon anise extract
  • 4-1/2 to 5-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup golden raisins

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, dissolve yeast in warm milk. Add the sugar, orange juice, butter, eggs, egg whites, lemon juice, orange zest, salt, lemon zest, extract and 2 cups flour. Beat until smooth. Stir in raisins and enough remaining flour to form a soft dough. Turn onto a floured surface; knead until smooth and elastic, about 6-8 minutes. Place dough in a bowl coated with cooking spray; turn once to grease top. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 1-1/4 hours.
  • 2. Punch dough down. Turn onto a lightly floured surface; divide in half. Shape into loaves. Place in two 8x4-in. loaf pans coated with cooking spray. Cover and let rise in a warm place until doubled, about 45 minutes. Bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from pans to cool on wire racks.
