In a large mixing bowl stir together 1 1/2 cups of the all-purpose flour and the yeast; set aside. In a medium saucepan heat and stir 1 3/4 cups water, sugar, margarine or butter and salt just till warm (120-130) and margarine is almost melted. Add water mixture dry mixture. Beat with an electric mixer on low speed for 30 seconds.scraping the sides of the bowl constantly. Bet on high speed for 3 minutes. Using a wooden , stir in the drained cracked wheat, whole wheat flour and wheat bran. Stir in as much of the remaining all-purpose flour as you can. Turn the dough out into a lightly floured surface. Cover and let rise in a warm place till double in size (about 1- 1/4 hours). Punch down dough. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface. Divide dough in half. Cover and let rest for 10 minutes. Lightly grease two (8x4x2-inch) loaf pans. Shape each portion of dough into a loaf. Place the prepared loaf pans. Cover and let rise in a warm place till nearly double in size (30 to 40 minutes). Bake in a 375 oven for 35 to 40 minutes or till the sounds hollow when you tap with your fingers (if necessary, cover loosely with foil the last 10 minutes of baking to prevent overbrowning). Immediately remove bread from pans. Cool on wire racks. Makes 2 loaves (32 servings).
