Outback Steakhouse Bread
Serving Size: 8


Cooking Directions:
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 1/2 cups warm water
2 tablespoons butter -- softened
1/2 cup honey
2 cups bread flour
1 2/3 cups wheat flour
1 tablespoon cocoa
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
2 teaspoons instant coffee
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 teaspoons active dry yeast
1/4 cup water
75 drops red food coloring
45 drops blue food coloring
30 drops yellow food coloring
cornmeal for dusting

Place all ingredients in your machine in the order specified by your
machine's manufacturer. Select the dough cycle and press start.

When the dough cycle is complete. Remove dough ball from the pan and
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. Meanwhile,
preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

Uncover the dough and bake it for 20 to 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.

This recipe yields 8 single-serving loaves.

Comments: It is normal for this dough to be a bit tacky and to seem
somewhat thin. Just be sure to add plenty of flour to your hands and work
surface when working with the dough to prevent sticking. If you are able
to find caramel color, you can use that rather than the food coloring
formula described in the recipe. Just measure 1 tablespoon of caramel
color into the dough mixture where the recipe uses food coloring and
