    2 teaspoons dry yeast
    1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
    about 3/4 cup warm water (or more)
    3 1/3 cups flour
    1 1/2 teaspoons salt
    1 egg
    2 tablespoons peanut or sunflower oil, plus more to grease the dough
    2 tablespoons anise seed
    1 egg yolk to glaze bread

    Dissolve the yeast and 1/2 teaspoon of the sugar inn 1/2 cup of
    warm water. Add about a cup of the flour and stir vigorously til
    smooth. Leave this sponge-batter for 30 minutes until doubled in
    bulk.

    Put the remaining flour in a large bowl, add the rest of the
    ingredients except the one egg yolk, and mix will. Add the risen
    sponge. Work it with your hands and add enough warm water to make a soft dough that holds together as a ball. Knead for 10 minutes until very soft and elastic. Pour 1/2 tablespoon of oil in the
    bowl and roll the dough around to grease it all over. Cover the
    bowl with plastic wrap and leave in a warm place for 1 1/2 hours
    or until doubled in bulk.
