I didn't have natural bran, so I used powdered wheat flakes cereal instead. I also reduced the sugar to 1/4 cup, used raisins, and baked for 1 1/2 hour. The bread turned out very flavourful, but the raisins made it terribly difficult to slice the loaf! It also did seem a little dense, but I will make this again, with a few changes.
