Makes:
12 servings, 1 loaf

Ingredients
2/3 cup water, lukewarm
1/3 cup milk, lukewarm
1 large egg, mixed with a fork
3 tbsp. molasses
1 2/3 tbsp. soft margarine
1 1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup natural bran (not the cereal)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup rolled oats (not the instant variety)
1/8 cup rolled oats, to sprinkle on top of loaf
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/4 cup psyllium
2 1/4 tsp. fast rising yeast
3/4 cup raisins (optional)

Methods/steps
Place all ingredients into your bread machine according to manufacturers instructions (or mix by hand). Allow the ingredients to mix well. Turn your machine off after the first mixing cycle is complete. Remove the dough and allow it to rest 10 minutes on a lightly floured board. Knead lightly and shape into a round loaf. Place into a greased cake pan and sprinkle with oats. If your dough is not sticky enough to hold the oats, brush lightly with egg white & slash the top of your loaf before adding the oats. This will also help to give a 'crisp' crust to your bread. Cover with a damp warm towel and set in a warm place to rise (about 1 hr). Place in a 375 degrees preheated oven and bake about 40 minutes or till bread tests done (removing it from the pan, tapping the bottom of your loaf lightly should produce a 'hallow' sound). Remove the loaf and allow cooling slowly on a wire rack and covering with a tea towel.
