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.

Mike12 August 24, 2013 REVIEW:
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 July 2, 2013 REVIEW:
I followed the recommendation and added molasses to this recipe. The bread rose nicely and the texture was perfect.
outbackdude July 9, 2012 REVIEW:
DELICIOUS BREAD! I made it and it was absolutley delicious.But i think there needs to be less sugar
asdfasdf1124213 April 10, 2012 REVIEW:
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.
Lovebread February 25, 2012 REVIEW:
Love the recipe! I used the dough cycle and finish it in the oven. It came out perfect. It is now my Fab.
pwatters September 12, 2011 REVIEW:
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 April 26, 2011 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!!
patv January 19, 2011 REVIEW:
I made this recipe, but did not put the dough in individual pans, but left it in the bread machine to bake. Delicious!
HD December 9, 2010 REVIEW:
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.
MommyA June 9, 2010 REVIEW:
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! May 16, 2010 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!
Tammy April 22, 2010 REVIEW:
It was ok, very easy to make. It was very good bread, off the mark as far as taste at being outback's for anyone trying to find the exact or closest recipe. Did everything to the "T" and tasted when done, added some whipped butter and was impressed by the taste, but I am seeking one that is closer to the taste of true Outback bread.
Dana B December 23, 2009 REVIEW:
Half way into this recipe I realized I did not have wheat flour so I substituted with Rye flour. It was great. It still tasted like Outbacks'. I'm going to try adding the extra flour as posted earlier since it was a bit sticky when pulling it out of the bread machine even though a roll in a little flour cured the sticky. This recipe is a keeper!
Guest Foodie January 18, 2009 REVIEW:
Wow, this recipe was great. I made the whole thing in my bread machine. You need to use the light setting, medium bakes it a bit too long. All the great flavor, without all the work!! Thank-you!
missjoy November 30, 2008 REVIEW:
I've made this recipe a couple of times and I think it's the best bread machine recipe out there. I have tweaked it a little, using 1/2 cup water + 1 cup of evaporated milk instead of 1 1/2 cup of water. I also used previous suggestions of adding a Tbsp of molasses. Then, I added a little vital wheat gluten. The evap milk gave the bread some richness, the molasses gave a hint of dark sweetness, and the gluten gave the bread a little more loft. A previous reviewer called this recipe "divine" and I agree.
Michelle November 26, 2008 REVIEW:
We did not think this tasted like the bread at Outback. It was good however not like theirs. (I did leave out the carmel coloring but don't think that would have changed the taste that much.) The dough was really sticky and required a lot more flour. Since it was so sticky it was difficult to punch down and roll into loaves. Also, this recipe says it makes one loaf however, if you follow the instructions, you actually end up with eight small loaves. Probably won't make again. Thanks anyway.

skeydoo October 25, 2008 REVIEW:
Tried this recipe and it was fabulous, everyone loved it. I did make a few changes. I followed another reviewers comments and I added 1/4 C. each of the bread flour & whole wheat flour, 1 T. molasses, 1/4 C. powdered dry milk. This recipe is definitely a keeper.
OLDSPOKES March 1, 2008 REVIEW:
I have been making this recipe for almost two years now (with olive oil substituted for butter)and my wife loves it but I always found it was missing a little something and have been trying various tweaks to find what was missing. Well, I think I found it. I increased both the white and whole wheat flour by 1/2 cup each and the water by 1/6 cup and added 1 tablespoon of molasses and a 1/4 cup of skimmed milk powder - abosolutly divine result.
Guest Foodie February 22, 2008 REVIEW:
A good tasting bread & nice texture, but did not taste exactly like Outback bread.
debs January 21, 2008 REVIEW:
I really like this bread. It freezes well also. However, the bottom of mine always gets to dark and crunchy for my taste.
Does anybody have any suggestions?
Steve October 2, 2007 REVIEW:
Wonderful! Tastes Just like Outback. Real Easy too!
Chrissy May 20, 2007 REVIEW:
This is excellent bread. It is really easy to make and tastes fantastic.
coldchick18 October 17, 2006 REVIEW:

jeffries3 August 14, 2006 REVIEW:
This recipe is awesome, it was like being at the restaurant. My family keeps requesting it. I am lucky that it had a bread machine version. I have made it three times in a week and a half, and
still get requests for more....
Patti July 20, 2006 REVIEW:
Very good! Similar to that at Outback. I did leave out the caramel coloring, but followed the recipe exactly after that. My machine had a little trouble stirring up that much flour so I assisted it a little, you may not have that problem. I would make it again, for sure!
jimbo100 July 19, 2006 REVIEW:
Made this bread and followed the reciped to a T. Tasted just like the bread served at the Outback. I'll make it again when we have guests, each getting their own loaf.
