Fig-BloodOrange-AniseSeed Bread for Bread Machine

This was my inaugural use of a bread machine. I hope you enjoy my first attempt.

I do love the rich color of Blood Orange. I feel like it has almost a floral taste to it. The molasses and fig make for a rich heartiness. And, the anise seeds leave a pleasant essence.

I am planning an Olive Parmesan Rosemary Loaf next.
