Along with your meal at this huge national steakhouse chain, comes a freshly baked loaf of dark, sweet bread, served on its own cutting board with soft whipped butter. One distinctive feature of the bread is its color. How does the bread get so dark? Even though this recipe includes molasses and cocoa, these ingredients alone will not give the bread its dark chocolate brown color. Commercially produced breads that are this dark—such as pumpernickel or dark bran muffins–often contain caramel color, an ingredient used to darken foods. Since your local supermarket will not likely have this mostly commercial ingredient, we'll create the brown coloring from a mixture of three easy-to-find food colorings—red, yellow and blue. If you decide to leave the color out, just add an additional 1 tablespoon of warm water to the recipe. If you have a bread machine, you can use it for kneading the bread (you'll find the order in which to add the ingredients to your machine in "Tidbits"). Then, to finish the bread, divide and roll the dough in cornmeal, and bake.

Our family LOVES this bread! I find it odd that there are such varying ratings on this because if you follow the recipe like Todd has it, it is absolutely delish! One person says it tastes just like OBSH & the next one says it tastes nothing like it. How can they both be right about the same recipe? Unless someone isn't doing something right. We've never changed a thing on it and everyone we've shared it with ask us if we went and bought loaves from the restaurant.

I too did the Keurig Italian roast in lieu of water and made this for a very HARSH group of judges - my brothers -- who LOVE to find any reason to make fun of me. Well --la-dee-dah -- they WOLFED it down and took my 'stash' loaf home with them! It was GREAT, lots of flavor, I did not use the food color it absolutely did not need it -- my color was rich and robust like the flavor. I used Hershey's extra dark cocoa and that may have helped.
