Ingredients

230g/8oz wholemeal flour
115g/4oz semolina
¾ tsp fine salt (smoked or fleur de sel Guérande if available)
55g/2oz sesame seeds
55g/2oz flax seed
55g/2oz pumpkin seeds – roughly ground
1 tbsp runny honey
3½ tbsp vegetable oil, plus extra for greasing
ground seeds or spices of your choice (optional)

Directions to make Multi-seed savoury crackers

  1. In a large bowl, mix the wholemeal flour, semolina and salt together with the sesame, flax and ground pumpkin seeds.
  2. In separate bowl, whisk 210ml/7¼fl oz water with the honey and oil. Stir in to the dry ingredients and mix to a medium-firm dough.
  3. Knead the dough for five minutes. Return to the bowl, cover and set aside for 20 minutes.
  4. Preheat oven to 180C/375F/Gas 4. Line 2-3 baking trays with non-stick parchment.
  5. Oil the work surface and roll the dough out to a thickness of 3mm.
  6. Using a ruler and a sharp knife or pizza cutter, cut the dough into rectangles or diamonds, of approximately 5x15cm/2x6in. Place on to the prepared trays close together, but not touching.
  7. Spray the crackers with water. At this point you can add a topping if you wish (more ground seeds or spices). You can reknead any left-over scraps, but they will not be as successful as first kneading. Alternatively, put the scraps on a tray and bake them for snacking.
  8. Bake the crackers for 15-18 minutes. Turn the oven off, open the door for 30 seconds and close again. Leave the trays in the residual heat of the oven for 10-15 minutes for extra crispness. Transfer to a wire rack to cool.
