Bread Machine version of Outback Bread

The leaves are falling and the forecast hints of snow.  Sounds to me like it’s time to pull down the bread machine from up high in the pantry.





You have got to try this recipe!  I can’t tell you how good it is!


The ingredients




Ummm, so pretty and smells good already



Step by step procedure




It’s really not hard to do





Believe me…your guests will not care that these don’t look magazine perfect.  I served these for a Supper Club meal we hosted last fall and were they ever a hit!  I’ve never seen so much bread eaten.  Great, great flavor!




Outback Steakhouse Honey Wheat Bushman Bread

Bread Machine

1 1/2 c. warm water

2 T. butter, softened

1/2 c. honey

2 c. bread flour

2 c. wheat flour

1 T. cocoa

1 T. sugar

2 tsp. instant coffee

1 tsp. salt

2 1/4 tsp. yeast (1 pkg.)

3 T. cornmeal (optional for dusting)

Place all ingredients in the bread machine and process on dough setting.  The dough will be a little on the wet side and sticky, but if it seems too wet add a bit more flour.  When dough is done let it rise for on an hour.  Remove from pan, punch down, and divide into eight portions.  Shape each portion into loaves about 6-8 inches long and 2 inches wide.  Sprinkle all sides with cornmeal and place them on 2 cookie sheets.  Cover and let rise 1 hour.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes. Serve warm with butter.

Serve with a cup of soup for a perfect late fall lunch.


I am joining Michael at Designs by Gollum today for Foodie Friday.

Thank you so much for the nice comments you left regarding my daughter’s wedding!   Next week I will share some photos of the centerpieces from the reception. The overall look turned out just perfect.

See you over at Michael’s!

Hubby loves OB bread. I really need to buy a bread maker. Looks very good.

Hi Deb! Oh, this looks good. I don't have a bread machine but hopefully I just just bake it in the oven? Yum, how I love bread, especially homemade and warm. mmmm.
Be a sweetie,
Shelia ;)

Oh I'm so jealous Donna! Before I moved from Maryland to Florida I did the stoooopidest thing...sold my bread machine! I love that Bushman Bread! I'm so going to try your recipe (sans the machine).

Thanks for the recipe!

Oh that looks good Donna! Bread is my down fall, I love it all, and once I start eating it I can't stop. I have considered a bread maker, however, I would have to consider rejoining Weight watchers too! said...
