Angela Lansbury's Power Loaf



  1. In large bowl, pour boiling water over cracked wheat and stir.
  2. Stir in shortening, honey and salt; let cool to lukewarm.
  3. Sprinkle yeast into warm water; let stand until frothy; add to wheat mixture.
  4. Gradually stir in 3 cups (750 mL) flour.
  5. Stir in bran flakes, oats and wheat germ. Mix very well and cover bowl with damp cloth.
  6. Let rise, about 1 hour, until doubled in bulk.
