Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease two baking sheets.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt and baking soda. Stir in honey, shortening and water. Mix dough until it is smooth and well developed. Turn dough out onto a lightly floured surface and knead until smooth and supple, about 8 minutes.
  3. Divide the dough into two equal pieces and form into loaves. Place loaves on prepared baking sheets.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 35 to 40 minutes, or until golden.

Just as a note, this bread CANNOT be used to make Roman Catholic Communion hosts. Catholic hosts MUST be made with ONLY wheat flour and water, any other ingredients render the bread unsuitable for the Roman Catholic Mass and will invalidate the Mass.

Just in case someone wants the exact citation: "The Code of Canon Law, Canon 924 requires that the hosts be made from wheat flour and water only." Ye Olde Wikipedia :) And the bread is good (on its own merits).

I'm interested about the comments made by RAEVER_BOY...as a lifelong Catholic, I've eaten this kind of leavened bread at the Eucharist many times (though wafers are by far the norm.) If someone WERE to make this bread for Roman Catholic communion services, I'm sure a quick phone call to the parish priest beforehand would assuage any doubts.
