Place all of the 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 more flour. When dough is done let it rise for 1 hour.
Remove from pan, punch down and divide into 8 portions. Form portions into tubular shaped loaves about 6-8 inches long and 2 inches wide. Sprinkle the entire surface of the loaves with cornmeal and place them on 2 cookie sheets. Cover and let rise for 1 hour.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 20-25 minutes. Serve warm with whipped butter.

I wish I had followed the other review suggestions. It wasn't quite what I expected it to be. I think it needs the modifications that others suggested to be like Outback.

It almost worked leaving it in the bread machine using the whole wheat setting; taste great but too dense on the inside (not as 'fluffy' as it should be). Next time I'll go the oven route and make it more roll-like as per your instructions.

Bread Eater REVIEW:
I followed the recommendation and added molasses to this recipe. The bread rose nicely and the texture was perfect.

It was a decent bread, I didnt think it was anything that special though and I didnt think it was as close to outback's bread as other reviewers have been saying. i followed the recipe except had the bread machine bake on the whole wheat cycle.

Love the recipe! I used the dough cycle and finish it in the oven. It came out perfect. It is now my Fab.

I have made this bread for the last few years, my kids love it. I recently lost the recipe so I had to find it again. I do omit the coffee all together but I think I will be trying the molassas suggestion.

Guest Foodie COMMENT: Does the 2 1/4 tsp of yeast in this recipe refer to FRESH or DRIED yeast?
In general, when the recipe does not specify which kind of yeast, how do you know which kind it is referring to?
If someone could answer this for me, I would be very grateful!!

I made this recipe, but did not put the dough in individual pans, but left it in the bread machine to bake. Delicious!

First time bread baker here... I really enjoyed this bread, though! Turned out great. I used a cup of brewed coffee and half a cup of evaporated milk for the 1 1/2 cups water called for, added the molasses as others had, and upped the flour just enough to keep it from being unworkable. SUPER good stuff, man! There's just something neat about making and eating bread that you constructed from start to finish. I like it.

I made this bread twice now and the second time around was very successful and I am loving it! I am for sure making more of this delicious bread. Thanks for sharing the recipe! I fell in love with this bread when we went to Outback Steakhouse and wanted to make some. Good thing I came across with your recipe. I didn't use coloring in it, but I followed the rest of the recipe. :)

Happy Baker! REVIEW:
After reading all the wonderful reviews on this bread I decided to give it a whirl. We needed to substitute the instant coffee and simply used 1/2 c. brewed coffee instead of 1/2 c. of the water. The flavor is wonderful!!!! We were so pleasantly surprised. It's become a family favorite to have on hand for serving with cream cheese, jams and jellies, or to make mini-sandwiches with!
