Anise bread with sweet pear sauce

40 minutes - 2 mini loaves 1s1of

It's mini loaf craze, love baking with the mini pans I bought. Been making mini everything. This time, i made some anise bread topped with a sweet sauce, loaded with caramelized pear chunks.

My bag of anise seeds has been sitting in my pantry, for way too long, begging to be given a purpose.

I'm sorry I neglected you for so long anise seeds, you're delicious, and you smell so so nice. No hard feelings? We're good you and I right?

Right.

This recipe was inspired by a Pineapple and anise seed 'pudding chomeur' recipe on Will travel for food! I ended up making little cake breads, instead of pudding. Making them egg-free worked out nicely too! My cake breads have a less sugar than the pinapple pudding chomeur too.
