How to Make Unleavened Bread for the Lord's Supper

At our congregation, different ladies sign up each month to be responsible for making the unleavened bread for the Lord's supper we partake of on the first day of the week (Acts 20:7). Your congregation can do this, too! Making the bread is really easy. I made it with some of my friends a couple of Sundays ago between worship services on Sunday, and it was fun! You can even do this with some of the younger girls who are interested in baking.

There are lots of recipes out there, but here is a really easy one:

1 Cup Flour
2 Tb oil (any kind)
1/2 cup water

Preheat oven 350 degrees. Combine all ingredients and knead into dough. Roll out 1/8 inch thick. Use pizza cutter to cut the dough into little squares. Bake for 15-20 min.

You can also use shortening in the place of oil. Tip: When the pan cools, just pick it up and let it kind of "slam" onto the counter, and all the little squares will just break apart, and you can store them in a zip lock bag!

Easy breezy! If you have any other tips or recipes, feel free to leave comments!

If the ladies at your congregation don't make the bread, and you would like to, you should start this up at your congregation. :)


  1. Remember to use "plain" flour rather than self-rising flour.

  2. Thank you for this easy recipe! We are missionaries in Zambia, and don't have a resource for purchasing. This is quick and easy! I also tweaked a separate version for our home use and added herbs and salt to make a snack like oyster crackers. :) Really appreciate you sharing! This literally takes minutes!

  3. Do you roll it out and cut it right on the baking pan? It looks like you do, but just wanted to be sure.
