From now on I will read the reviews. This recipie is almost worthless. The dough is hard to work with,and I would change the recipe to halve the yeast and anise, and drop the cooking temp to 3...

I read several reviews and knew to grease the pans and knead the bread and allow to rise at least twice. I appreciate a whole wheat recipe that didn't use 50%-75% regular flour...100% whole whe...
