Mine came out like hockey puck loafs. Not sure where it went wrong but it went wrong in a hurry thats for sure. My kids where so not impressed and used them as blocks. Sorry that I had to post this, but it was awful. It was jet black loafs. Thanks for shareing though its not your fault that I cant bake sometimes..
I made this recipe as listed..First off, I didnt like the use of all that food coloring..The bread did not taste or look like outbacks.This was drier and the color was really awful,blackish greenish?..I think it needs more molassas and some more honey..If I were to make is again. I would try to find the carmel coloring at a speciality store or ask if the bakery would sell some..I know I saw it for sale at the brew store ...Thanks for sharing though...
This recipe wasn't bad. It was not nearly as "fluffy" of bread as the real thing. Although I have never cooked with yeast before, so maybe I did something wrong. Will try again someday.
We loved this dense, dark bread. It is very similar to that served at the Outback Steakhouse. I made mine in my bread machine on the "dough" cycle. After the cycle was complete, I shaped the dough into 2 round loaves and put them on a baking sheet to rise for 1 hour. After baking for 40 minutes, I let it cool for about 15 minutes. We enjoyed it warm topped with honey butter...yummy! Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe...it is definitely a keeper!

AMAZING!!!!! Wasn't sure how this was going to turn out because this was my second time making bread (the first time a simple french bread recipe, and didn't turn out very well). Anyhow, made this recipe last night. Half the doug left in the fridge over night and the other half put in the freezer for some other day. Didn't add any of the food coloring, but did add approx. 1/4 cup of gluten. Turned out YUMMY!!!! My husband didn't know what kind of bread I was making and as soon as he tried it said "just like the one from Outback!!"
I haven't had the outback bread before, but it is my husbands little brothers favorite, so I made this for him over Christmas visit. WHat a great, easy recipe! The bread was beautiful and delicious, and the family said it was a dead ringer! I might oil the cookie sheet this time (making a double batch!) because the loaves stuck a little. Since it is cold now, I just preheated the oven to a low temp, turned it off, and let the dough rise in the closed oven. Perfect! Thanks for posting, I searched for ten minutes to find the right one, and this is definitely it!
This bread was delicious! I do agree that it was a little dry, though. I made the full recipe, but froze balls of dough to have more later. I am so glad I tried this recipe! I may try adding a bit more molasses and honey as other suggested. I didn't use the food coloring, so I added a bit of extra water to make up for it.

Great bread . . . made for dinner tonight but smelled so good coming out of the oven I had to have a piece. I cut the recipe in half and made two small loaves. The only change I made was used equal amounts of honey and molasses. Also left out the food coloring, which didn't affect the bread anyway! Was not fluffy but wasn't heavy either. Just perfect! Made for ZWT 5
Even my husband who "hates" wheat bread loved this recipe! Thanks for sharing. (PS If you let the dough rest for 5 minutes or so and then knead it again for 3 minutes-ish it will turn out more fluffy.)
Just made it today and had rave reviews from my family. I did however use more freshly ground whole wheat and added vital wheat gluten....turned out great
