Irish Brown Bread

2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon granulated sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 cup wheat bran
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons shortening

Mix all dry ingredients. Gradually add milk until it forms a thick mixture, slightly sticky. Form into one large ball. Flour and shape dough into a round disc about 1 1/2 inches high. Place in a floured 9-inch cake pan. With a sharp knife, cut a cross onto the top of the bread, about 1/4 inch deep. Bake at 400 degrees F for about 40 minutes or until a wooden pick comes out clean.
