Updated Unleavened Bread Post

I am updating my Unleavened Bread post from a year ago.  I wanted to take some better pictures of this bread to share with you.  Baking unleavened bread is an excellent activity to do with your family.  You can explain the differences in leavened and unleavened bread.  You could also explain why and how unleavened bread was used in Bible times.  Most importantly, you could use this bread to remember that God sent His Son Jesus to die on the cross for our sins.  I explain all of this in my earlier Unleavened Bread post if you need a reminder.  You can also see the comments that were left about his Unleavened Communion Bread.  One person said, “It was far too tasty to be Communion bread.”

If you are looking for other easy Easter treats, try the following:

Resurrection Cookies

If you are looking for a way to explain Jesus death to children, try these Resurrection cookies.  Each ingredient represents something Jesus went through.   Kids seal the tomb, the oven, with tape.  In the morning, the cookies are found empty just like Jesus’ grave.

    Thank you for sharing.

  2. Hi Diane
    I don’t understand why your directions say “Prep Time: 5 hrs 27 mins” If the dough is not raising, why does it take so long to make? Jean

    • Jean,

      Thank you for stopping by and looking at my Unleavened Communion Bread Recipe. Last week, I got a new plugin for my recipes. It allows me to add a nutrition label, time, and more. I notice it put in the wrong time in several recipes. Thank you for contacting me about it. I went in and changed it on the recipe. This unleavened bread is really easy to make and only takes about 10 to 15 minutes to make and 15 to 20 minutes to bake.

      I hope you get a chance to make it. Let me know how it turns out.
      Many blessings,
      Diane Roark

  3. I have just made this recipe and it’s wonderful! I do have a couple of questions though, how do I store this bread once cut into pieces and how well does it retain its freshness? We are a smallish church and I ended up with 190 one inch pieces which is more than we have members, even during Lenten communion. I don’t mind making this every week, it’s good for the soul! Thank you!

    • Dee,

      I am glad you tried making this easy to make unleavened bread. I wish I could tell you from experience how to store this bread but I have never made it more than a day or two ahead of time. Since it does not have leaven in it, it should store well. I would place it in an air-tight container in the freezer. You may want to take it out of the freezer and put it on a baking sheet and back into the oven for a few minutes. This will help remove any moisture.
      Thank you for stopping by and trying my unleavened bread.
      I hope you will consider following my blog.

    • Jan,

      Thank you for stopping by Recipes For Our Daily Bread. Did your dough look like the dough in my pictures? It is really sticky but not liquidy. If it is sticky, it will be fine. Simply flour the surface well and then flour the top of the dough.
      I have not had any trouble with the dough nor have I heard of any of the other people say it was runny. I not sure what could have gone wrong. I promise we make this unleavened bread often and it always comes out great.
      I am hoping you figured it out because it really is delicious.
      Blessings,
      Diane Roark

    • Christy,

      I would bake them between 15 and 20 minutes until they are lightly tan around the edges. As the bread cools, it should get harder but not hard enough to be crunchy. I hope this helps.

      Let me know how your unleavened bread turns out.
      Blessings,
      Diane Roark

    • My dough was also incredibly runny. I wish I could understand what I’m doing wrong . It didn’t look at all like what was in your photo. Thanks anyway for sharing!

      • Katie,

        Thank you for leaving me a comment. After you flour the parchment paper area where you roll your dough out, place your dough in the center of it. Next, flour the top of the dough well (about 1/4 cup) as well as the roller. Gently Roll the dough out. It should roll out fine. After rolling it out, place the parchment paper on a baking sheet.

        I hope you have a great week.
        Blessings,
        Diane Roark

  4. I have never had anything but the little communion crackers at church for communion. Our church does communion once per month. You are so right, there will be lots of new faces at church around Easter but it’s not as many as it used to be.
    I am going to feature this post at next week’s Merry Monday party. Thank you for sharing with us at Merry Monday.

  5. I love that you are sharing this! I make the communion bread for our church. When we started the church my husband wanted something more out of communion than ” a cracker and thimble full of juice” as he put it. It took me a while to find a recipe that was actually unleavened, it’s identical to this one. We love it. Thanks for sharing at Family Fun Friday. Also, wanted to let you know I’m featuring it this week. Just seems appropriate since it’s Good Friday. Happy Easter…a little early.

    • Danita,

      Thank you so much for featuring my unleavened bread post this week. I truly appreciate it. I hope many people will use it to find out more about Jesus.

      Blessing,
      Diane Roark

  6. Hey Diane,
    A lady where we worship always makes our bread for our congregation. We partake of it every Sunday, not just certain Sunday’s. Every week has a first day!
    Hope you are having a good day.

  7. I guess I must be very slow this morning, but I don’t see the actual recipe for the bread.

    I can remember in the fifties when my mother made unleavened bread for church. This was back in the day before it was available for purchase from church supply sources.
    I wish I had watched her make it.

    I’ve noticed that the trend now seems to be to a loaf of bread which is torn into small pieces. The bread seems to have some kind of leavening in it–not the flat type shown in your pictures or like my mother made.

    • Margie,

      Thank you so much for letting me know that my recipe link did not work. It is fixed now. I love baking this homemade unleavened bread. It reminds me of how Christ followers made their bread in Jesus time. I wrote a post about why they used unleavened bread and what it represented during Jesus time. //recipesforourdailybread.com/2013/03/30/best-unleavened-bread-recipe/
      I love that your mom made unleavened Communion bread homemade.

      I hope you have a great Sunday and a wonderful Easter!!
      Blessings,
      Diane Roark

  8. Sounds like a great and wonderful recipe Diane and thank you so much for sharing here with all of us. Will definitely need to try soon for my family and also hoping you are enjoying your weekend now, too 🙂

    • Janine,

      I truly appreciate you sharing this unleavened bread recipe. I love baking homemade unleavened bread. It reminds me of how people in Jesus time used unleavened bread. People start searching for God more around Easter. I hope this bread may help them in some small way.

      Thanks again for all your support.
      Diane Roark
