Simple Unleavened Bread recipie

Passover is coming up soon so I wanted to give you a simple and correct unleavened recipie to try.

This recipie is actually for  things like Showbread or some of the slaughters and this bread is called by the Torah unleavened halah.

Halah literally means sick, ill or worn perhaps because this is what sick people may eat. See Genesis 48:1, Ex 15:26, 23:25 etc.

The key to making a successful loaf of unleavened bread is thickness of the loaf and inclusion of at least the eggs and oil. I think it is also possible to add honey to the bread, especially if you think that the bread is too hard for your taste.

In order to make the bread soft it needs to be as thin as possible so your loaf should be half-size of the regular loaf or less.

I found this recipie here so please visit the link to see the pictures.

3 cups all-purpose flour
2 tablespoons butter or cooking oil
3 large eggs
1/2-cup water or milk
1 teaspoon salt

  1. Combine the dry ingredients (flour and salt) in a mixing bowl and mix them together.
  2. Beat together the eggs and oil, then add this mixture to the dry ingredient mixture.
  3. Add the milk, then beat the mixture for 2 to 3 minutes until it is relatively smooth.
  4. Pour the batter into three greased, 8-inch, square baking pans.
  5. Bake at 450 degrees for 20 minutes.


To avoid sticking, use a cooking spray that contains flour or sprinkle flour in the pans after they have been sprayed. Do not use cooking spray that does not contain flour by itself, as this will cause the loaves to stick.

Check the bread frequently as it is baking. Over-baked unleavened bread becomes extremely hard and crumbly.

To add some different flavors to your unleavened bread, add 1/4 cup honey or a pound of cheddar, Colby or Pepper Jack cheese to the batter.
