    Title: St Basil's Bread
    Categories: Breads
    Yield: 1 Loaf

    4 1/2 c Flour
    1 pk Dry yeast
    1 ts Grated lemon peel
    1/2 ts Anise seed; crushed
    1 c Milk
    1/4 c Butter
    1/4 c Sugar
    3/4 ts Salt
    2 lg Eggs
    1 Beaten egg yolk
    Sesame seeds

    In large bowl, combine 2 cups flour, yeast, lemon peel,
    and anise seed. Heat together milk, butter, sugar, and
    salt to 120┬░F/49┬░C, stirring constantly. Add to dry
    mixture; add 2 eggs and beat at low speed of mixer for 1
    minute, then at high speed for 3 minutes. By hand, stir in
    enough flour to make a stiff dough. Turn out onto floured
    surface and knead until smooth. Shape into a ball, place
    in lightly greased bowl, then turn over once to grease

    Cover; let rise until double (1 to 1 1/4 hours). Punch
    down and divide into sixths. Cover; let rest for 10
    minutes so it is easier to roll out. Shape a sixth of
    dough into flat 8" round. Place in greased 8" round cake
    pan. Repeat with second sixth. Divide third portion into 2
    parts. Shape each into 18" long strands, then twist both
    together into a rope and place in a 7" circle on top of
    pan. Repeat with remaining dough so you have 2 breads.
    Combine egg yolk with it and brush on loaves once they
    have risen until double (30-45 minutes). Sprinkle with
    sesame seeds. Bake at 375┬░F/190┬░C for 20-25 minutes until
    nicely browned. Remove from pans. Cool on rack.
