Before you dive into the world of Spanish Weed Bread, here’s a quick note: This recipe includes marijuana, so be mindful of local laws and consume responsibly.

Step 1: Preparing the Dough

  • In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the weed butter, milk, and water. Heat them until they’re very warm but not boiling.
  • While the liquid mixture is warming up, measure out 1-1/2 cups of flour and set the rest aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, combine the 1-1/2 cups of flour, dry yeast, salt, anise seed, and sugar. Mix them well.
  • Slowly beat the warm liquid mixture into the dry ingredients until they are well combined.
  • Add the eggs to the mixture and beat in another 1 cup of flour. Continue adding more flour until the dough is soft but not sticky.
  • Transfer the dough to a lightly floured surface and knead it for about ten minutes until it becomes smooth and elastic.
  • Lightly grease a bowl and place the dough inside it. Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and let the dough rise in a warm place until it has doubled in bulk. This usually takes around 1-1/2 hours.

Step 2: Shaping and Baking the Bread

  • Once the dough has doubled in size, punch it down and shape it into loaves.
  • Let these loaves rise for an additional 1 hour.
  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  • Bake the risen loaves in the preheated oven for approximately 40 minutes, or until they are golden brown and sound hollow when tapped on the bottom.

Step 3: Applying the Glaze

  • While the bread is baking, prepare the glaze. In a saucepan, bring 1/2 cup of sugar and fresh orange juice to a boil. Let it simmer for 2 minutes.
  • Once the bread is out of the oven, use a pastry brush to apply the glaze generously over the top.
  • If you want to add an extra touch of sweetness and color, sprinkle some colored sugar on top of the glaze while it’s still damp.
