Want something epic to go with your steak at the Outback Steakhouse? I sure do. That’s why I always order bread with my steak and potatoes from the Outback Steakhouse menu. There is something about the deep brown and crusty bread that makes me want to dig my teeth into it. I sometimes feel I might be a bread vampire.
The Outback Steakhouse bread has not one or two but three sweeteners. It has honey, molasses, and brown sugar for the yummy sweet flavor. Also, there’s an unsweetened cocoa powder (I wouldn’t have guessed). This gives the bread a distinct color and texture, like it’s chocolate bread but not really chocolate bread. The bread flour is mixed with whole wheat flour and that makes the dough a little sticky yet still elastic.

Steps To Make Outback Steakhouse Bread
1. The Yeast In The Cup
Start by making the yeast mixture. Take a measuring cup and add warm water to it. The temperature of the water should be between 105℉ to 115℉. Then, add brown sugar, molasses, and honey to it to sweeten it. After that, add the active dry yeast to the cup and let it soften for 5 minutes.
2. The Dough Though
Once the yeast has softened, pour the sweet yeast mixture into a stand mixer. Add the whole wheat flour, bread flour, and cocoa powder to it. Also, add canola oil and a pinch of salt to it.
Using the hook attachment of the mixer, mix everything to form a dough for about 5 minutes. The dough should be a little sticky to touch and should feel slightly elastic. Place the dough in a clean large bowl and set it aside to rise for about an hour.
3. Dough Ball To Dough Log
After that, puncture the dough and let all the air out. Divide the dough into 8 balls of equal size.
Now, with a rolling pin, roll the dough balls out to a thickness of ¼ inch thickness.
Now, roll the dough to form a dough log. This log will become your beautiful bread. Sprinkle some cornmeal on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and place all the dough logs on it. Then, set them aside for another 20 minutes to rise again.
4. Am I A Baker?
While your dough is rising, preheat the oven to a scorching temperature of 400℉. After the dough has risen, place the baking sheet in the oven and bake the dough for about 15 minutes.
When it is baked, has a deep brown color, and is slightly crusty, take it out. Let it cool and then serve your delicious bread with whipped butter.
