Outback Steakhouse Bushman Bread

This is one of the easier restaurant recipes to make.  So easy, it’s something you could probably do several times a week, regardless of what you’re serving.

I was previously using a recipe which included rye flour and molasses but I wasn’t ever 100% happy with the results.  I’ve modified this now and I think you’ll agree, it tastes much more authentic and it’s actually very easy to make. If you still want that original recipe, you can find it here: Outback Steakhouse Bushman Bread (with Molasses and Rye Flour)

This is easiest when it’s done with a bread machine, which is what I’ve shown, however, you can make this by hand with a simple mixer and a dough attachment. This goes very well with the Outback Steakhouse Potato Soup and the Outback Steakhouse Chopped Blue Cheese Salad.

Outback Steakhouse Bushman Bread Recipe
  • 2¼ tsp yeast
  • 1½ cup warm water
  • 2 tbsp butter (softened)
  • ½ cup honey
  • 2 cups wheat flower
  • 2 cups bread flower
  • 1½ tsp instant coffee
  • 2 tbsp sugar (granulated)
  • 2 tbsp cocoa
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp carmel coloring
  • 3 tbsp cornmeal
  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees.
  2. It's very important you place the ingredients into you bread machine in the following order: Water, butter, honey, bread flour, wheat flour, cocoa, sugar, coffee, salt, yeast and carmel coloring. This will keep the yeast from activating with the warm water until after it's begun mixing.
  3. Run your bread machine on the "dough" setting until complete. Your dough may look a bit more moist than you'd expect. You can slowly mix in additional flour, in 50/50 portions, if needed.
  4. Place the dough in a glass bowl covered with a towel and let rise in a warm dry area for about an hour.
  5. Separate the dough into two equal parts and roll out into oval loaves.
  6. Place on a baking sheet and dust with cornmeal.
  7. Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes or until the crust makes hollow sound when tapped.
  8. This bread is supposed to freeze very well.
