Thanks to Barry of Memphis, Tennessee for sending in this great recipe using white flour. I made this recipe recently with one cup white flour, one cup wheat flour. The butter in this recipe makes it delicious! This recipe is easy to make with a bowl and wooden spoon. No mixer needed.
White Flour Communion Bread
2 cups white flour
(or one white flour and one wheat flour)
1/2 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. sugar
6 Tbsp. butter
3/4 cup milk
Combine dry ingredients in a bowl.
Cut in butter.
Add milk and stir.
Knead for a few minutes.
Divide into three balls of dough.
Pat out on floured board to 1/2 " thick.
Pierce with fork into stripes (see photo above)
Bake at 450 degrees for 12-15 minutes.
• Piercing the bread must be done or the bread will puff up in the oven.
(Remember, Jesus was pierced for our transgressions.)
Joanie of Portland, OR shares her recipe that is
prepared on a skillet instead of an oven. This is how many Jewish families
prepare their homemade "matza" or unleavened bread for Passover.
One difference...they don't cut the bread into pieces.
They place it into the skillet looking like a tortilla. I like this one.
Skillet Communion Bread
Take one cup of wheat flour
Gradually add 1/2 cup cold pressed olive oil until it beads up
and incorporates with stirring.
Then incorporate with clean fingers until it looks like a pie crust.
Add gradually 1/2 cup warm water mixed with 1/2 tsp. salt.
Stir with a fork or fingers (fingers work best) until it's formed into a ball.
Knead ball but don't overdo it!
Roll it on a non-greased surface to thin thickness and then cut into pieces.
Score and stripe with a fork.
Cook in electric skillet - adding NO GREASE -
at 400 degrees. Watch closely so they don't burn.
Transfer onto clean paper towels to cool.
Put into bag with the paper towels and then into a freezer bag. Freeze until use.
CONCERNING SALT...Many have questioned the use of salt. Salt does not leaven bread. Baking soda does. The only reason you would not want to use salt is to make the bread kosher for Passover.
