A Scandinavian tradition, this bread has a licorice flavor profile defined by the caraway, anise and fennel seeds in its recipe. It’s a traditional holiday bread and is often served at special occasions. Because the seeds are so small and don’t affect the dough texture they can be added at the beginning of the recipe. There’s no need to wait for a fruit and nut setting. This is also a great tea-bread and makes a wonderful dessert bread as well.
