Steak House Dark Breads

I have gotten pretty good with white flour yeast breads and rolls and my family was thrilled. Now, they aren't on my diet. I've been eating the Pepperidge Farms Oat Nut bread and it's good - no complaints. But I'd really like to do is bake some whole grain breads I can. I've never made wheat bread. I just ordered from King Arthur lots of whole wheat flour, multi-grain flour, and flax seeds and it should be here soon.

Here's something I've been craving: those lovely, dark, soft, kinda sweet tasting loaves of bread they often serve hot in steak houses on a little wooden cutting board? I have no idea what this kind of bread is called. It's not pumpernickel, I don't think, because it's so much sweeter and softer in texture. But it is almost as dark. Do any of you know of something close? Maybe even have a recipe? I would be eternally grateful.

I actually bought some organic wheat flour from Whole Foods to make bread with. I just used it in a regular recipe instead of white flour and it turned out great. Makes me feel like getting just a bit bolder maybe... LOL.
I love the brown breads as well, so thanks for the links! Maybe I can get bold enough to try making one of them.

Thanks so much, LadyCook! The Sweet Brown Bread recipe looks like it might be exactly what I've been dreaming about. When my flour gets here, I will make some and post back here. I'm really excited!!!

I've made Boston brown bread steamed in coffee cans. Good, but really not any better than the stuff you buy from the store in cans.

If you can't buy the canned bread, then the posted recipes look a LOT easier than the recipe I used!

sqwaw bread?

Is sqwaw bread (spelling??) the same as boston brown bread? I know it is a sweet brown bread like they have in steak houses. I believe it is made with malassas....very yummy, but I rarely see it in the stores.
From the pic I just saw of the brown bread recipe, sqwaw bread looks alot lighter in texture. The boston bread looks like a banana bread texture where the sqwaw bread has a texture of like white bread.
I'll see if I can find a recipe for it...
