Outback Copycat Honey Whole Wheat Bread – Recipe for Outback’s steakhouse perfect brown bread. Dark, delicious, wholesome and homemade. The sweetness from honey, crisp crust and soft crumb make a perfect addition to steak dinner.
Today I’m sharing this amazing Outback Copycat Honey Whole Wheat Bread. For those of you who have been to Outback Steakhouse and tried the bread, you know it’s good. Warm, slathered with butter. It’s the thing that holds us over til our steak dinner shows, up right?
And then there are others of us who show up just for the bread and some steak on the side, if you know what I mean.
I’m like that. Give me the bread and I’ll have a few bites of steak to go with it.
I was so pleased when I found this Outback Copycat Honey Whole Wheat Bread recipe online and couldn’t wait to try it. Because with kids you just don’t get to dine out at a steakhouse very often. So now I can have my bread and eat it too!
My 3 favorite types of recipes to make, eat and post: drum roll, please…..
#1: Bread Recipes
I think you all knew that one. I love me some bread. I love me some soft home-baked bread fresh out of the oven. Mmm….
#2. Chocolate Recipes
I think you all knew that one was coming too. I mean a girl can’t survive on bread alone. A girl needs her chocolate too. I’m a chocolate girl through and through. I’m pretty proud of it too.
#3 Sandwiches and pizza
Oh, the combinations. Help me, please. I could go on and on!
I could survive off of the above 3 categories and be totally happy forever. At least I’m pretty sure. I would probably miss fruit a lot but I could survive happily.
This Outback Copycat Honey Whole Wheat Bread recipe doesn’t disappoint. It’s delicious, wholesome and sweet. You can’t beat that. It gets it sweetness from honey which I just adore in bread recipes. So much better than Bread recipe
If you’re a fan of honey and wheat, I think you’ll really enjoy this Honey Whole Wheat bread recipe too.
I think this recipe was really easy to make too. Not a lot of tricks. Just a big ole treat at the end. This with a hunk of butter. Oh yeah babe!
Tastes wonderful when paired with cinnamon honey butter. You can find that here.
I always use Hershey’s Dark cocoa powder. I use it so often that I buy it in bulk here for a great price.
This is the breadmaker I use. I can’t say enough good about. Check out the reviews. If this many people say something is good than it must be good, right? I love it. It takes out a lot of the guesswork for you.
Some bread that I make I knead by hand, others using the stand mixer and others using the bread maker. I love all three methods and see no reason why I should only choose one. So I do them all depending on the type of bread, how much time I have, etc.
If you make this recipe please let us know what you think. Remember I’m not a ‘professional’ baker and this recipe was adapted slightly from a recipe I found online.
Like copycat recipes? This bread sticks recipe reminds me of those delicious ones from that famous Pizza place. And this rosemary bread reminds me of that amazing loaf you get from Romano’s Macaroni Grill.
Til we meet and eat again,

Tools Used in the Making of this Outback Copycat Whole Wheat Bread:
Honey: Look for a good honey. Here’s one or look at your local grocery store or market.
Dark Cocoa Powder: I almost always buy this online. I find it much more difficult to find it in the store and it works well with this recipe and others.
Bread Pan: My favorite bread pan. I purchased these over 5 years ago and they’re still holding up well.
Outback Copycat Honey Whole Wheat Bread
- 1 1/2 cups warm water
- 2 tablespoons butter softened ( I use unsalted.)
- 1/2 cup honey
- 2 cups bread flour
- 1 2/3 - 2 cups wheat flour
- 2 1/2 tablespoons dark cocoa powder
- 1 tablespoon granulated sugar
- 2 teaspoons instant granulated coffee
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 Tablespoon yeast
- 1/3 cup old fashioned oats
- Place all ingredients in a bread machine in the order listed above and use the dough setting. Start with 1 2/3 cup flour. If it seems too sticky add remaining flour a bit at a time until the dough is not sticking to the sides of the bowl. Dough can also be made using a mixer. Just knead dough with dough hook for about 8-10 minutes on low setting. Kneading by hand: about 10-12 minutes.
- Let it rise for about an hour or until about doubled in size. In the bread maker (most dough settings already allow for this.) Or in a lightly greased bowl covered.
- Prepare 2 loaf pans. Grease bottom and sides well or line with parchment. I used 2 8-1/2 by 4-1/2 by 2-3/4-Inch pans. See link below for the pans I use for most of my bread.
- Divide dough into 2 pieces. And shape into loaves. (If you want authentic Outback size, make about 8 tube shaped loaves.) The dough is sticky, so make sure you use a well-floured cookie sheet and plenty of flour on your hands. Place into prepared pans.
- Sprinkle the entire surface of the loaves with oats and then let them rise again until doubled. My dough did not rise above the surface of the pan. Only let rise until doubled.
- Meanwhile preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Bake for 20-24 minutes or until baked through. (I use athermometer to test for doneness. Insert into center of bread. It should register 200 degrees.)
