This sweet, moist loaf was inspired by the tempting Swedish speciality called limpa, a rye bread sweetened with molasses and flavoured with orange zest and anise seed.
Rye flour is made out of the rye grain It is available in the health-food aisle of most supermarkets; alternatively, try your local health-food store. * Anise seed has a licorice flavour If you can't find it, you can use fennel seeds instead; these are sweeter and milder than anise but will work just as well in this bread.
Along with its rich flavour, rye flour provides magnesium and riboflavin, plus folate to help your heart. And a diet high in rye fibre may reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering cholesterol levels.
