Recipe: Bran Yeast Bread

This bread is photo worthy. Unfortunately, this is the only photo of it I took.
This is one dang good bread. And you'd never know it was a bran bread. I used bran flakes for the called-for bran. 

Makes 2 loaves 

1 C hot water 
2/3 C sugar 
1 C 100% Bran 
1 C (scant) shortening 
2 yeast cakes or envelopes active dry yeast 
1 C lukewarm water 
2 eggs, beaten 
1 ½ Tbsp salt 
6 C flour 

Pour hot water over sugar, bran, and shortening, and cool mixture to lukewarm. Dissolve yeast in 1 C lukewarm water and add to bran mixture. Add eggs, salt, and flour, and let rise until doubled in bulk. Knead on floured board and separate into 2 loaves. Place in greased loaf pans and let rise again. Preheat oven to 350°. Bake 15-20 minutes or until done.
