“This recipe makes delicious communion bread that is completely unleavened and suited for religious purposes. It has a unique, chewy texture and the delicious taste of butter and honey. Great alternative to bland communion wafers or crispy matzo crackers. Kids at our church love it, and so do the grown ups.” - by BILLMI
Original recipe yields 4 loaves
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Lightly grease a baking sheet.
- Sift the flour and salt into a large mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, dissolve the honey in the water. Pour the honey mixture into the flour along with 1/4 cup of melted butter to form a sticky dough. The rest of the butter will be used for basting later. When the dough is too stiff to stir, turn it out onto a well floured surface, and knead for 8 to 10 minutes, until smooth.
- Divide the dough into four pieces, and form each one into a round. Place the loaves on the greased baking sheet. Brush with butter.
- Bake for 45 minutes in the preheated oven, basting the tops of the loaves with butter every 15 minutes. After the loaves have baked the full 45 minutes, brush the tops with beaten egg, and continue baking for another 15 minutes, until loaves are a rich golden brown. When ready to use, slice or break into small pieces for serving in a church communion.

"No wonder it's too salty. Try 1 teaspoon salt and 3 TABLESPOONS honey...." See more"
"After reading the other suggestions, I realized that the measurements were, indeed, reversed for the salt and honey (use 1 tsp salt and 3 T honey!). Even after making the adjustments with the salt an..." See mored honey, I needed more flour - about 6 C total - and after kneading the dough for 12 minutes (!) the bread was still too dense for communion bread, and didn't seem cooked all the way through. For home use it's a pretty nice taste, especially with homemade jelly - but the texture just won't make it for communion at church."
