Unleavened bread is easy to make and perfect for many uses from Passover Matzah to Communion crackers. The best unleavened bread is, of course, made at home using the freshest ingredients and especially 100% whole grain flour, milled fresh using the WonderMill.
Homemade Whole Grain Matzah
Yield: 20 matzah
2 cups hot water
2 tablespoons butter (or olive oil) *or good fat of choice
2 teaspoons salt
2 tablespoons honey – optional
4 1/2 cups whole wheat flour — more as need to make a sturdy dough *You can use sprouted flour here if desired.
Mix hot water, butter, salt and honey in a mixing bowl and mix well. Add flour, 1 cup at a time until a sturdy but pliable dough is achieved.
Knead for 6 minutes or until pliable and soft, but not sticky. Roll out on an oiled surface into small (6 -8 inch) circles, and flatten with palms. Roll thin for crispy matzah, a little thicker for softer ones. Each dough ball should weigh 2 ounces.
Bake in a preheated 450 oven on a baking sheet for 8 minutes or until golden brown. Flip matzah over and bake 1-2 minutes more. Remove to a cooling rack and let cool completely.
