Sweet Rye Bread (Limpa)

1 pkg. active dry yeast
1/4 cup warm water

1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/3 cup molasses
1 tablespoon shortening
1 tablespoon salt
2 teaspoons caraway seed
1/2 teaspoon anise seed
1 1/2 cups hot water

1 cup flour

2 cups rye flour
3 to 3 1/2 cups flour

Soften yeast in warm water, 110 F. to 115 F. Let stand 5 to 10

Meanwhile, put into a large bowl the brown sugar, molasses,
shortening, salt, caraway, and anise. Pour hot water over ingredients
in bowl and set aside until lukewarm.

When lukewarm, blend in 1 cup flour, beating until smooth. Stir
softened yeast and add to flour mixture, beating well.

Add the rye flour and beat until very smooth. Then beat in enough
remaining flour to make a soft dough. Turn dough onto a very lightly
floured surface. Allow dough to rest 5 to 10 minutes. Knead. Form
dough into a large ball and put into a greased, deep bowl. Turn to
bring greased surface to top.

Cover with waxed paper and a towel and let stand in warm place
(about 80 F.) until dough is doubled. Punch down with fist; pull
edges in to center and turn dough completely over in bowl. Cover
and let rise again until dough is nearly doubled. Punch down dough
and turn out on a lightly floured surface.

Grease a baking sheet.

Divide dough into two portions and shape into balls. Cover and
allow to rest 5 to 10 minutes. Remove to greased baking sheet.
Cover and let rise until dough is doubled.

Bake at 375 deg. F. 25 to 30 minutes, or until lightly browned.
Cool completely on cooling racks.
