1/2 teaspoon salt
1 egg, beaten

Dissolve yeast in warm water and set aside. Scald milk, remove from heat, and stir in sugar and salt. Pour into bread bowl and, when cool, add yeast and egg. Beat in wheat germ, raisins, and apple. Add flour, 1 cup at a time, to form a stiff dough. Turn out onto floured board and knead until smooth. Place in buttered bowl, turn to grease top, cover, and let rise until doubled.
