Lord's Chapel Communion Bread (Honey-Wheat Bread)
from "Jan Karon's Mitford Cookbook & Kitchen Reader"
1/2 cup vegetable oil, more for greasing the pan
4 cups whole wheat flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
2 teaspoons salt
1/2 cup honey
1 cup milk
3/4 cup water
Lightly coat a baking sheet with vegetable oil and set aside. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees. Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt into a large bowl. Place the honey, milk, water, and oil in a small saucepan over low heat and simmer until the ingredients are combined.
Add the wet ingredients to the dry and mix well. Turn the dough out onto a lightly floured surface and gently knead a few times. Roll out the dough until it is about 1/2 inch thick and shape it into a round.
Cut a cross into the surface of the dough with the blade of a sharp knife. Place the bread on the baking sheet and bake for 20 to 25 minutes. Place on a cooling rack to cool completely.
