Ingredients

3 c
unbleached white flour
1/4 c
brown sugar, lightly packed
1 1/2 tsp
salt
1 tsp
baking soda
2 Tbsp
honey
1/4 c
shortening
1 c
water

Directions

1
Put 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.
2
Bake 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.
