Recipe for Communion Bread

"(7 loaves) 2 cups hot water 
2 Tbsp olive oil 
2 Tbsp honey 
1 Tbsp molasses 
1 Tbsp salt 
5-6 cups of wheat flour 

Mix all of the ingredients minus the wheat flour in a mixer (I use a Kitchen Aid mixer with dough hook). Slowly add flour until the dough wipes clean off of the sides of the bowl. Mix for 5 - 7 minutes. Divide recipe into six to seven equal balls. One at a time, take the dough ball and pat into a 1/4 inch thick circle. Take a fork and pierce the dough with stripes and a cross. or I roll out the dough and cut with 3inch cookie cutter, then score each round into eighths with a pizza cutter. Bake at 400 degrees for 12 - 14 minutes. Cool on a rack. Wrap well and freeze until needed." -contributed by the chair of my call committee, it's a wonderful recipe!

  1. I like this one from Luther Seminary. It has approximately the same sugars to flour ratio, but quite a bit less sodium.

    A tip: after baking, flip the loaves over and deeply score the loaves into serving sized pieces. The bread will appear intact from the top, but is easy to tear into uniform pieces. You might reserve one piece from this treatment for elevation, if you do that sort of thing.
