This recipe is a variant on Italian anise bread, easy to make in the bread machine and perfect for Christmas. It uses egg nog for a delicious sweet flavour and heavenly aroma.
This bread is so delicious and easy to make. I was afraid the with 2 T. of anise seed it would be a bit too much spice but it turned out so good! - 17 Dec 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Everyone loved this bread and the glaze was an extra special touch! I loved it warmed with honey butter! - 21 Dec 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Amazing fresh out of the machine! The Glaze makes it. It didn't mention, but I slightly chopped the nuts with their skins on (I had trouble skinning them), all turned out well. - 18 Dec 2010 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
