  1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the water, sugar and yeast. Stir to dissolve the yeast, then add the bran. Blend well and set aside to soften.
  2. In a wide saucepan, combine the milk, butter and salt. Place over medium heat and stir until butter is melted. Remove from the heat and allow to cool.
  3. When milk is barely warm to the touch, stir in softened bran. Add the whole wheat flour, apples and raisins. Stir to combine. Blend in enough bread flour to form a stiff dough.
  4. Turn out onto a floured surface and knead, working in as much of the remaining flour as is necessary to create a cohesive dough. Continue kneading until dough is soft but no longer sticks to the work surface.
  5. Transfer to a greased bowl and cover with plastic wrap.Secure with an elastic band and set aside to rise until double in bulk.
  6. Generously grease a 9x5 inch loaf pan. Punch dough down, then turn out onto a floured surface. Shape it into a loaf and place in prepared pan. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and let rise.
  7. When double in bulk, bake in pre-heated 375* oven for 35 to 45 minutes, or until the loaf sounds hollow when you tap the top. Cool on a rack for 5 minutes, then turn out.
