Is this what you're looking for?....I found two versions...the first looks like a much simpler recipe.

Outback Steakhouse Bushman Bread


  • 3 packages dry yeast
  • 1/2 cup warm water
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 cup warm water
  • 1/2 cup dark molasses
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons oil
  • 2 cups rye flour
  • 2 1/2 -3 cups bread flour


  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Soften yeast in 1/2 cup warm water.
  3. Stir in the sugar and let stand 6 minutes or until it’s bubbly.
  4. In large mixing bowl combine the yeast/water combo above along with 1 cup warm water with molasses, salt, oil and rye flour.
  5. Mix this until it makes a nice smooth batter.
  6. Work in the bread flour until the dough is smooth and no longer sticky. It should be very pliable and elastic.
  7. Knead the dough for a few minutes and then let it rise in a greased bowl until it’s doubled.
  8. Punch the dough down and shape into 2 large round loaves
  9. Placed the loaves a few inches apart on a greased and cornmeal dusted cookie sheet. Sprinkle a bit of the cornmeal over the top of the loaves as well.
  10. Let loaves rise in a warm place until doubled.
  11. Bake loaves at 375 for about 30 minutes or until the crust makes hollow sound when tapped.
  12. This bread is supposed to freeze very well.



Outback Steakhouse Bushman Bread

Source: Recipezaar

1 1/2 cups warm water
2 tablespoons butter, softened
1/2 cup honey
2 cups bread flour
1 2/3 cups wheat flour
1 tablespoon cocoa
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
2 teaspoons instant coffee
1 teaspoon salt
2 1/4 teaspoons yeast

1/4 cup water
75 drops red food coloring
45 drops blue food coloring
30 drops yellow food coloring
cornmeal, for dusting

Combine the flours, cocoa, sugar, coffee and salt in large bowl. Make a depression or "well" in the middle of the dry mixture. Pour the warm water into this "well," then add the butter, honey and yeast. Combine the food coloring drops with ¼ cup of water and add that to the "well. "Slowly mix the ingredients with a spoon, drawing the dry ingredients into the wet. When you can handle the dough, begin to combine it by hand, kneading the dough thoroughly for at least ten minutes, until it is very smooth and has a consistent color. Set the dough into a covered bowl in a warm place for an hour, to allow it to rise. When the dough has risen to about double in size, punch it down and divide it into 8 even portions. Form the portions into tubular shaped loaves about 8" long and 2" wide. Sprinkle the entire surface of the loaves with cornmeal and place them on a cookie sheet, or two. Cover the cookie sheet (s) with plastic wrap and let the dough rise once more for another hour in a warm location. Preheat the oven to 350° degrees F. Uncover the dough and bake it for 20-24 minutes in the hot oven. Loaves should begin to darken slightly on top when done. Serve warm with a sharp bread knife and butter on the side. If you want whipped butter, like you get at the restaurant, just use an electric mixer on high speed to whip some butter until it's fluffy.
