Re: This is me...


No doubt you share with everyone. One of my GF always has fresh miniature loaves of banana bread on her counter. You visit you leave with one.

And I always had trouble getting those nice slashes in my bread. Good job.

Re: This is me...


That is one of my weaknesses, wonderful bread, I can just taste that, beautiful!

By the way, my suggestion for the woman wondering what to try next, maybe she should try making toilet paper. lol

We couldn't make bread right now, no flour to be had anywhere around here, shelves are bare.

Re: This is me...


Speaking of Bread . . .

my wife is on this bread in the oven kick and now she wants
to try to make the dark brown kind found at the Outback SteakHouse.
we ran out of YEAST yesterday. there is NONE to be found in our local stores.
so - what would be the "go to" yeast for oven baked bread that I have
to buy online ??? (I din't know there were so many types).
and no, I'm not gonna start that 100 year old sourdough system.
TIA,
John

Here, it's Fleischmann's or Red Star Active Dry Yeast. There might be fresh yeast near the Butter section.

Re: This is me...


Johnny, I’ve always used Active Dry yeast for bread. Let me know how the Outback bread turns out. We love it. Recently ordered Outback dinner delivered and were disappointed they forgot the bread. (But meal was delicious)

Jim. I coulkd not find any flour or yeast for several weeks, but found some flour and plenty yeast. I never go to Walmart, but was out with my wife and she had to stop for something. I found plenty Fleishmans yeast on the shelf.

When I could not find yeast, I went to sourdough starter. I'm still learning and have yet to make my first loaf. But I could have last week.
I forgot the starter was in the oven when I turned it on.
You can have your own starter in 6 days. You better have flour though.
Google sourdough bread.

I'm not 100% sure about Outbacks brown bread, but I think its Pumpernickel. Glad you mention it. I will check on that. I like it too.

Re: This is me...


thanks guys !!
I ordered a 5oz pack of active dry yeast off of ebay and also
an 8oz pack of Dutch chocolate cocoa powder - which is one
of the key ingredients in the brown bread.
I was surprised to find several copy-cat recipes on the net for
Outback's bread. I'm really looking forward to trying a batch next week.

thanks again !!

Outback Steakhouse Brown Bread


update:
not to jack Joann's thread, but, I put together a recipe within
my skill sets from the WWW.
ordered the yeast and cocoa powder off the net.
first batch of bread was a straight out DISASTER.
(there is big difference in taste of cocoa between manufacturers).

so, anyway, the second batch was spot on, in my opinion.
I haven't eaten at Outback in almost a year, so, my comparison
taste buds are not to be depended on.
but from what I remember, the taste and texture is extremely close.
here are the pics right out of the oven:

This is me...-bread-001.jpg

This is me...-bread-002.jpg

and with a little bit of budda (mo budda - mo bedda)
just a "quick snack" turns into a full blown MEAL.

This is me...-bread-003.jpg

ohhhhhh my goodness; I am so full - - - time for a NAP !!!
