    Galley Wench's Note:

    I know there's a couple version out there . . . but this is as close to the real thing you can get! No food coloring here! I bake exclusively with instant yeast, however I've given directions for both. Original recipe is from Gloria Pitzer (queen of copycat) however I've made some minor changes! Time does not include rising time. NOTE: DO NOT USE BLACKSTRAP MOLASSES! I believe a few of the reviewers have used the wrong molasses!

      Im sorry but this bread didn't taste anything like outback steakhouse's bread. I followed it exactly to the recipe and it did come out as a pretty loaf with good texture but I really didnt like the taste...Im sure people that like rye or molasses would like this but I was hoping for a copy of the outback recipe and this wasnt it.
