Three Seed Crackers #Twelveloaves

Three Seed Crackers | Hostess At HeartIt’s that time of month when I get to participate in the monthly challenge from my bread baking group, Twelve Loaves. This month the challenge is another side of breads…a less leavened side: we had the challenge to bake Crackers, Crisps and Flatbreads. Our very talented host is Camilla from Culinary Aventures with Camilla.Three Seed Crackers | Hostess At HeartThis was a very interested challenge for me. I’ve been wanting to try making crackers for quite some time. I had so much fun, but let’s just say….Keebler doesn’t have a thing to worry about. It is experience that makes us better at what we do right? These crackers tasted delicious. I got three pans (not completely full). Each one was a bit better than the last.Three Seed Crackers | Hostess At Heart

Servings: 24 -36



  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 2 teaspoons poppy seeds
  • 2 teaspoons caraway seeds
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt


  • 1-1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour plus more for dusting
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 cup water


  • Place oven rack on the bottom third of the oven. Preheat oven to 450 degrees F. Line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Mix the topping ingredients and set aside.
  • In a large bowl, whisk the APF, whole wheat flour and salt together. Add olive oil and water to the flour mixture with a rubber spatula until a soft crumbly ball forms. Press against the side of the bowl with the spatula or your hand to pick up stray flour.
  • On a lightly floured work surface, cup three equal portions. Pat each portion into a square. Set 2 aside and cover with clean towel. Roll the remaining dough into a rectangle about 1/8 inch thick, 7-8 inches wide and 14-15 inches long. Don't let the dough stick to the working surface.
  • Brush the dough lightly with water and sprinkle with seed mixture and lightly press onto the dough.
  • Cut dough in half lengthwise, and then cut across to make rectangles roughly 2x4 inches. Don't bother trimming the edges. These are rustic right? Transfer to the baking sheet. Bake until nicely browned, about 10 minutes. Let cool on a wire rack.
  • Repeat for the remaining two portions.
  • Store cooled crackers in a zip-top bag for up to a week.

I meant to tell you I made your delicious crackers and included them in a gift basket for a client, I love them!! I put some really good cheese, fruit, crackers and homemade cookies and banana bread. It was so nice. I used black and white sesame and poppy seeds. Delicious.

Thank you Suzanne! I bet they were just gorgeous with the black sesame seeds! I would love a gift like this! I'm actually doing gift baskets with loaves of my English Muffin bread this year too.
