  1. Place the water, flours, anise, salt, sugar and yeast in the pan of the bread machine in the order recommended by the manufacturer. Select Dough cycle; press Start. Do not put the olive oil or sesame seeds in.
  2. When the dough cycle signals its end, remove the dough from the machine, and punch down. Divide the dough into two halves, and shape into balls. Flatten the balls to a 1.5cm (2/3 in) thickness. Place them on a lightly floured baking tray. Cover with towels, and let rise until double in size, about 30 minutes.
  3. Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas mark 6. Brush the top of each loaf with olive oil, and sprinkle with sesame seeds if you like. Prick the tops of the loaves all over using a fork.
  4. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the loaves are golden, and sound hollow when tapped. Serve warm or cool.
