anise bread with sweet pear sauce

2 mini loaves — 40 minutes

It's mini loaf craze! Love baking with the mini silicone pans I bought, I've been making mini everything. This time, I made some anise bread topped with a sweet sauce, and 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. The taste of anise pairs very well with pears.
