april blogging sprout
I found these recipes on a friend of a friend's blog, Lindy's blog. This recipe and the recipe I blogged for Communion Bread 1 are from Wartburg Seminary, and Lindy gave me permission to re-blog them.




Communion Bread 2

Thoroughly combine the dry ingredients:
  • 2 c whole-wheat flour
  • 1 c white flour
  • 1 & 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 & 1/4 tsp salt
  • Stir in 4 tsp oil. Set aside.
Mix wet ingredients together until dissolved:
  • 1 Cup very hot water (about 115˚ F)
  • 3 Tbsp honey
  • 3 Tbsp molasses
Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix well. Dough should be slightly sticky. Do not knead.

Divide into eight balls and flatten each into a 1/4 - 1/8 inch thick disk.

With a knife, score the top of each loaf into eight pie-shaped sections, so that the sections can be more easily broken off while serving. Alternatively, you could score a cross onto the loaf.

Lay the loaves on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 minutes. Remove from oven and brush the tops of the loaves with oil. Bake an additional 5-8 minutes. Let cool.

Yield: eight 4 oz. loaves.
"And many shall come from the east and the west, from the north and the south, and feast at the table in the kingdom of God!"
Luke 13:29
