Three Seed Crackers | Hostess At Heart

It’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.

This 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.

  • 1 tbsp sesame seeds
  • 2 tsp poppy seeds
  • 2 tsp caraway seeds
  • 3/4 tsp kosher salt


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


  • Place the oven rack on the bottom third of the oven. Preheat oven to 450 °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 2×4 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.
