Steakhouse Black Bread

Steakhouse Black Bread


"This is a steakhouse bread recipe that I obtained many years ago from a friend. It makes a very dense and flavorful bread. If you like, brush the rolls or bread with beaten egg, then sprinkle some uncooked oatmeal on top before baking. Enjoy!"

  1. Place all ingredients in bread machine pan in order suggested by manufacturer. Select Dough cycle. When the machine indicates the end of the final rise, remove the dough.

Very close to the steak house bread. I made my coffee a little too strong but otherwise it was good. The dough was very sticky as others had mentioned. I used the kitchenaid mixer but once I rol...
