Multi-seed Crackerbread

Are you guys getting sick of hearing about the trip to King Arthur Flour yet? Well I’ve got two more posts detailing the recipes we learned and I’ll be announcing the winner of the KAF giveaway tomorrow. If you haven’t entered yet, be sure to do that before NOON today!

I was excited to learn that we’d be making crackers since I’ve never made my own. I had fun playing around with various seed/herb combinations. I think my favorite was the one with just sesame seeds and salt.

Hubby and I broke these into pieces and ate them with some hummus. We liked the crispy ones the best, which is obviously easier to control at home in your own kitchen. I would definitely make these again. They were very easy and how impressive is it to say you made your own crackers?!?

Multi-seed Crackerbread

Yield: 8

Ingredients:

1 cup flour
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 cup pumpernickel flour
1/2 cup whole cornmeal
2 tsp salt
1 cup water
2 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup assorted seeds such as sesame, poppy, fennel, caraway, and anise
2 Tbsp assorted dried herbs such as rosemary, basil, dill, taragon, and thyme
1 tsp freshly ground pepper
1 Tbsp course salt (optional)

Directions:

Combine the flours, cornmeal and salt in a medium bowl. Mix in the olive oil thoroughly and then add the water. You may not need all of the water, so hold back a few tablespoons and check the texture. It should be stiff, not crumbly.

Turn the dough out onto a floured board and knead it until it's a stiff yet supple ball of dough. Add more flour if the dough is too wet. The dough will not require a long kneading period, just long enough to get it to hold together well.

Combine the seeds, herbs, pepper, and course salt in a small bowl.

Divide the dough into eight equal pieces and cover with plastic wrap.

Working with one piece at a time, scatter about 1 tablespoon of the seed mixture on the work surface. Press the dough onto the seeds and begin to roll it out with a rolling pin. If the dough sticks, flip it over, apply more seeds and continue rolling.

When the dough is as thin as you can get it, place it on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Bake in a preheated 450 degree oven for 7-10 minutes, or until the top is browned. Cool completely before serving.

    We broke into our crackerbread right away too! Can I also add that I’ve really been loving what you’ve been doing with every post with the one and two-year lookbacks?

    Thanks M – I figure most people haven’t been reading that long and there is some good stuff back there. Everyone once and a while I even have a recipe from three years ago!

    Ooh I wish I had made one with just sesame seeds and salt. I loved the ones I made with lots of herbs, but the sesame seed one sounds so good!

    I dug into mine with some hummus too! Your presentation looks much more appetizing than mine though.

    For a long time, I favored crackers over cookies. And these look like the perfect cracker. Pass the cheese, a glass of wine, and you’ve got a party.

    Hi Jen!
    I am a fellow Bostonian and I also LOVE King Arthur. I took a weekend trip there myself this summer with my mom and sister. It was heaven! I am looking forward to following your blog!
