Embrace Change: Copycat Outback Bread

Homemade copycat Outback bread with a bread machine.

Enjoy the Outback Bread every day using this copycat Outback bread recipe.  I found this recipe at Pinterest — momcaster.com  and had to try it.  She used Oster Bread Machine which made a bigger loaf, but I needed to cut it in half to fit my machine.  The sugar, honey and molasses makes it sweet so for me its not an everyday bread … maybe every other day. lol

If it last, let it cool and slice for a great sandwich. I love to make my own herb butter and eat it warm. I promise you, this bread will make it into your weekly rotation.

For those who don’t own a bread machine check out your local Goodwill.  My machine was in great condition for $6.99.  I figured I would gamble with $6.99 to see if I would use it … great purchase. Last week I paid $4.99 for Soft Sub Rolls… almost made me want to give up bread.

So what changes did I Embrace:

  • New recipe
  • Savings on bread
  • New DIY
  • Recycled bread machine

Here are some tips for a successful loaf:

  • Warm water, coffee & milk to 100 degrees
  • Set out butter ahead of time so it will be at room temperature
  • Spray the honey measure cup with cooking spray for easy removal
  • Use Iodine salt not sea salt
  • Use the correct measuring utensil  “dry vs. liquid” cups it makes a difference
