Unleavened Communion Bread

90 mins (prep 45, cooking 45)
6 ingredients
3 servings
When I offered to be the person to make the Communion bread, I found myself somewhat nervous and intimidated. I tried 4 recipes, 2 leavened and 2 unleavened. I brought samples to some of the church members, and the minister. The members told me which ones they liked. The minister just smiled and said they were all fine, and whatever I did would be good. After several tries, I settled on this recipe. The minister was right... it does not matter. The bread is transformed into the Holy Sacrament at the altar.I use enough whole wheat flour to give it a nice color, and to help give the bread more body. I like to mark the bread with a cross, as a symbol and make it so that it is easily broken. We have 2 services, so I make 3 loaves. I pray as I make the loaves, and feel very humble that I am allowed to do this for our church.
