ingredients

directions

  • Combine the flours, cocoa, sugar, coffee and salt in large bowl.
  • Make a depression or"well" in the middle of the dry mixture.
  • Pour the warm water into this"well," then add the butter, honey and yeast.
  • Combine the food coloring drops with ¼ cup of water and add that to the"well.
  • "Slowly mix the ingredients with a spoon, drawing the dry ingredients into the wet.
  • When you can handle the dough, begin to combine it by hand, kneading the dough thoroughly for at least ten minutes, until it is very smooth and has a consistent color.
  • Set the dough into a covered bowl in a warm place for an hour, to allow it to rise.
  • When the dough has risen to about double in size, punch it down and divide it into 8 even portions.
  • Form the portions into tubular shaped loaves about 8" long and 2" wide.
  • Sprinkle the entire surface of the loaves with cornmeal and place them on a cookie sheet, or two.
  • Cover the cookie sheet (s) with plastic wrap and let the dough rise once more for another hour in a warm location.
  • Preheat the oven to 350° degrees F.
  • Uncover the dough and bake it for 20-24 minutes in the hot oven.
  • Loaves should begin to darken slightly on top when done.
  • Serve warm with a sharp bread knife and butter on the side.
  • If you want whipped butter, like you get at the restaurant, just use an electric mixer on high speed to whip some butter until it's fluffy.

    I’ve made the clone both ways, with food colorings and the other version with caramel food coloring. Both work and both taste great, like the Outback. I make and freeze for a quick side for soups, etc…

    Overall good recipe. VERY, VERY sticky, needs more flour and not sure why the coffee and cocoa is needed for the recipe, except for coloring. Did exactly and each time I removed the plastic wrap, bread sunk. Will try finding another as this is way too little flour in this one. Overall taste was very good though, bread was very flat.
