Outback Steakhouse Honey Wheat Bushman Bread
- 1 1/2 cups warm water
- 2 tablespoons
- 1/2 cup honey
- 2 cups bread flour
- 1 2/3 cups
- 1 tablespoon cocoa
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
teaspoons instant coffee
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 2 1/4 teaspoons (1 pkg.)
- 1/4 cup water
- 75 drops
red food coloring
- 45 drops blue food coloring
- 30 drops yellow food
Cornmeal for dusting
- If using a bread machine, add all of the ingredients for the dough in
the exact order listed into the pan of your machine. Set it on "knead"
and when the machine begins to mix the dough, combine the food coloring
with 1/4 cup of water and drizzle it into the mixture as it combines.
After the dough is created let it rest to rise for an hour or so. Then
remove it from the pan and go to step #3.
- If you are not
using a bread machine, combine the flours, cocoa, sugar, coffee and salt
in large bowl. Make a depression or "well" in the middle of the dry
mixture. Pour the warm water into this "well," then add the butter,
honey and yeast. Combine the food coloring drops with 1/4 cup of water
and add that to the "well." Slowly mix the ingredients with a spoon,
drawing the dry ingredients into the wet. When you can handle the dough,
begin to combine it by hand, kneading the dough thoroughly for at least
ten minutes, until it is very smooth and has a consistent color. Set the
dough into a covered bowl in a warm place for an hour, to allow it to
- When the dough has risen to about double in size, punch
it down and divide it into 8 even portions (divide dough in half, divide
those halves in half, and then once more). Form the portions into
tubular shaped loaves about 8 inches long and 2 inches wide. Sprinkle
the entire surface of the loaves with cornmeal and place them on a
cookie sheet, or two. Cover the cookie sheet(s) with plastic wrap and
let the dough rise once more for another hour in a warm location.
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Uncover the dough and bake it
for 20-24 minutes in the hot oven. Loaves should begin to darken
slightly on top when done. Serve warm with a sharp bread knife and
butter on the side. If you want whipped butter, like you get at the
restaurant, just use an electric mixer on high speed to whip some butter
until it's fluffy.
Recipe makes 8 small loaves of bread.
