Step by step

1. Heat the oil in a frying pan and, when it is scorching, pour the diced bread. Remove once fried. 2. Strain the oil, add the anise and flour. Stir constantly to ensure the flour does not lose its raw taste. 3. Add the milk little by little and stir to avoid lumps. Add the sugar. 4. Continue stirring until it thickens into a dough. When this happens, move it away from the fire. 5. Serve in bowls accompanied by fried bread and molasses.
