I do not have a bread machine to make this recipe, I used my Kitchen Aid mixer. I think that any good bread recipe can be easily adapted to be made by hand. I proofed the yeast with the warm water (that I dissolved the coffee granules into), yeast, sugar and honey for ten minutes until the yeast "bloomed", then added the melted butter and all the dry ingredients. I do NOT have bread flour, just regular AP flour. I did not need the vital wheat gluten. This dough was REALLY wet, it took another 1 1/4-1/2 cups AP flour to get it to form a ball that I could knead with my dough hook. I kneaded it for five minutes with the dough hook, then set it to rise in a greased bowl on a warm heating pad for a couple hours. I then formed it into large rolls and set the formed rolls into greased muffin tins (one 12-cup muffin tin was just right for me), then covered it with saran wrap and let it rise for 45 minutes on the warm heating pad. After the rolls were done, I brushed them with vegetable oil for tender tops. I did not sprinkle the tops with sesame seeds as I didn't have any. I think this recipe is a good recipe, I know she was going for a knockoff of the Outback's bread--and it's very close. Very chewy roll recipe with a nice fluffy interior. I think it's a good bread recipe today but the flavors will be even better the next day. I think it's a little too sweet for me now but that might mellow by tomorrow.
