Italian Anise Toast
May 24, 2011

This is an excellent recipe. I'm currently on my 3rd batch :) It's easy to make with only a few ingredients, and it reminds me of the toast my Gram used to make. My first batch I only had one egg, so I used applesauce and baking powder as a replacement, and they tasted good but weren't as crispy as the second batch I made as written. Also, you can use a tsp of anise extract in place of the anise seed. It gives a sharper flavor, but I prefer mine with more anise. The batch in the oven now uses 3/4 of the called for amount of sugar and 1/4 molasses to try to achieve a warmer flavor. The batter tasted good, so we'll see how it goes. All in all, this is a great an simple recipe that's easy to experiment with. Thanks.
