Candace's StoryI volunteered to make communion bread for my church, First Presbyterian, in Paris, KY. This recipe is easy and delicious. Thanks to "Carol" who posted it on Allrecipes.com.
unbleached white flour
brown sugar, lightly packed
1 1/2 tsp
1Put all ingredients into mixing bowl and blend. Use the dough hook and knead for 8 minutes. Add flour as needed to make a stiff dough. Pat out into 2 discs, about 1/2 inch thick and prick with a fork.
2Bake at 350 degrees F until light brown, about 35 or 40 minutes. Cool on a wire rack. This makes about 20 servings, according to the original recipe. However, at my chuch, we cut it into very small squares for communion, so it may serve a lot more people.

Thank you for this recipe. I also make communion bread for my Baptist church. I have a recipe I got from a children's Sunday School book long ago and have been making it ever since. I would like to try your recipe next time.

I also make the bread for communion at our church, Grace Presbyterian here in El Paso, Texas... I'm curious though, seeing no yeast, I'm guessing this does not 'rise' ? I'm looking to incorporate an unleavened bread but have not had the 'guts' to try it.. :-)

It does rise a bit, I guess from the baking soda. It tastes really godd and keeps in the church freezer for several months.
