Dear Faithful of Saints Constantine and Helen Orthodox Church,
Thank you for baking! We need 7 loaves each Sunday morning. If possible, bake extra for the freezer for an emergency or a weekday service. Please deliver the bread to Vespers on Saturday evening OR on Sunday morning before 9:30 am. For those of you that do not have a seal, Father Dave prefers to use a large lamb for communion both in height and width. Here is a link to the stamp that I use. Occassionally we may have more than one person baking on a given Sunday. This is a good problem to have! If this is the case, please do not be alarmed. Save some of your bread loaves in the freezer.
This recipe will make 2 9-inch loaves:
- 6 to 6 1/2 cups All Purpose Flour
- 2 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 2 1/2 teaspoon yeast
- 2 1/2 cups warm water
- Form 2 balls, place in pans, impress with seal, remove seal.
- Let dough rise until it almost doubles in size.
- Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes.
