Steakhouse Brown Bread - Yum!


When we go out for a steak dinner we love it when they bring the bread basket and the whipped to the table.  Especially if there is a loaf of that lightly sweet brown bread in it.  As I've grown more confident with my bread baking skills I've enjoyed branching out and trying new ones.  This is what I came up with for my steakhouse style brown bread recipe.

Steakhouse Brown Bread

2 cups whole wheat flour
2 cups all purpose flour
1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp salt
2 Tbs baking cocoa
4 tsp yeast
1/4 cup dark molasses
1 egg
1 Tbs olive oil
1 -1 1/4 cup hot water

Select the dough cycle.  Place dry ingredients in pan and select start.  Add molasses, egg, water and oil.  Once dough forms a smooth ball (you may have to add a little flour or water depending on humidity) close lid and allow cycle to run completely.


Once finished remove dough from machine and knead lightly on a floured surface.  Dough should be smooth and not be sticky.  


Divide dough into three equal parts.  Shape into a round loaf and place on a lightly oiled baking sheet.  



Cut a cross on the top of each dough ball, if desired.


Cover with a tea towel and allow dough to raise until doubled in size in a warm draft free place, approximately one hour.


Bake loaf in a preheated 400° oven for 20 minutes.  Remove from oven and brush top with butter, if desired.


I like to brush with butter or spray with a little non stick cooking spray to keep the loaves soft.  If you prefer a crunchy crust just leave them alone.  Sliced and served with whipped butter is fantastic but we also think this would be excellent bread to use for tuna or ham sandwiches.

    Did you ever think about putting together a recipe book/cookbook? I have often thought that if I had the time I would like to go through your blog and print out all of your recipes and make a book out of them. I've made several recipes you have posted and I have never been disappointed in any of them- they always turn out delicious and are enjoyed by us. :)
