This is the traditional Italian Christmas bread with a twist. It's flavoured with egg nog, anise seeds and cinnamon, dotted with hazelnuts and drizzled with an egg nog icing.
This bread is so delicious and easy to make. I was afraid the with 2 T. of anise seed it would be a bit too much spice but it turned out so good! - 17 Dec 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Everyone loved this bread and the glaze was an extra special touch! I loved it warmed with honey butter! - 21 Dec 2009 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Amazing fresh out of the machine! The Glaze makes it. It didn't mention, but I slightly chopped the nuts with their skins on (I had trouble skinning them), all turned out well. - 18 Dec 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
