Bread for Lord’s Supper

I recently had a friend ask me for a recipe for Bread for the Lord’s Supper. So I decided to add it to my recipe’s here.

This recipe serves about 60 people and it is likened to a thin cracker or wafer.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.


  • 1/2 C whole wheat flour
  • 5 Teaspoons Sugar
  • 5-6 Tablespoons of cold butter
  • 2 Tablespoons of cold milk

Lightly grease a baking sheet and set aside.  In medium bowl mix together flour and sugar.  Cut butter into small cubes and then cut them into the flour mixture as if you are making a pie crust.  Cut dough until it is like little coarse peas.  Slowly add the cold milk until the dough is the consistency of a pie crust.

Press the dough onto the prepared baking sheet until it is approximately 1/8 inch thin.  (hint: I cover the dough with wax paper and then use a same size baking sheet to press down over the dough until desired thinness … a rolling pin will work too!)

Poke the dough liberally with a fork and then score it with a knife or pizza cutter into squares of about 1/2 inches.

Bake until golden brown … watch closely it should be done in 10-12 minutes.

And he took bread, and gave thanks, and brake it, and gave unto them, saying, This is my body which is given for you: this do in remembrance of me. (Jesus speaking at His last supper with the Apostles on earth, Luke 22:19)
