Steak House Honey Wheat Oat Bread (Bread Machine)


Baking has been the name of the game in my house lately. What else is there to do when you’re stuck where you are for days, weeks, and months on end? When we decided to make some steak for dinner, I thought it was high time to whip up some of that famous ‘steal house’ bread that we all know and love.

You know the bread that I’m talking about. The soft, sweet, fluffy brown bread that is often served up with a whipped honey butter. This bread is exactly like that one. The only difference is that it’s homemade and in a larger loaf form!


So what makes this bread so brown anyway? Well, the secret is… cocoa powder! I know that sounds a little whacky, but trust me when I say that you won’t taste the cocoa in there. It’s just there for a touch of added sweetness and color.

This makes a rather large loaf too. We’re talking pretty average when compared to any loaf that you buy at the grocery store. The slices are perfect for sandwiches or even a to be used as a sweeter breakfast toast in the morning if you happen to have any leftovers!

1 1/2 C. Warm Water
2 Tbsp. Butter
1/2 C. Honey
2 C. All-Purpose Flour
1 1/2 C.Whole Wheat White Flour
2 1/2 Tbsp. Cocoa Powder
1 Tbsp. Sugar
1 Tsp. Salt
1 Tbsp. Active Dry Yeast
2 Tbsp. Dry Oats

Place all of the ingredients EXCEPT for the oats into the base of a bread machine in the order listed.

Set the bread machine to the dough setting and allow it to run.

Once the dough cycle has ended, lightly coat the inside of a large loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray.

Turn the dough out onto a floured surface and wrangle it around enough to be able to handle and place into the prepared loaf pan.

Give the dough a light spritz of non-stick spray and sprinkle it with the 2 Tbsp. oats.

Set the pan into a warm place (like atop a preheating oven) and cover lightly with a tea towel.

Allow the dough to rise for about an hour or until it has doubled in size.

Preheat the over (if it’s not already) to 350 degrees F.

Place the pan into the oven to bake for about 25 minutes or until the bread is cooked through.

Once done, remove from the oven and allow to cool completely before slicing into 16 pieces to enjoy!
