Homemade Savoury Crackers Recipe

This savoury cracker recipe is the genius of Peter – he created this one in our kitchen! We’ve made ‘seeded crackers’ before and now we can add these to the options list. And… they’re much easier (and quicker) to make!


Δ  1 cup wholemeal plain flour

Δ  1 cup plain flour

Δ  1/3 cup sesame seeds

Δ  1/3 cup poppy seeds

Δ  1 teaspoon salt

Δ  1 teaspoon baking powder

Δ  Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Δ  30 ml olive oil

Δ  150 ml water


  1. Mix flours, salt, baking powder, seeds and pepper in a large bowl.
  2. Add olive oil and mix well.
  3. Add 80 ml of water and combine to form stiff dough. Add water in small increments, so as not to get the dough too “sticky”.
  4. Knead the dough well for 2-3 minutes , then set aside to “rest” for 20 minutes, (can store in fridge during this time)
  5. Divide the dough into 4 even balls and roll out really thinly on baking paper. Aim for a thickness of about 3mm.

Hint: Use a pasta machine to get an even thickness – much easier than a rolling pin!

  1. Place rolled dough onto lined baking tray and use pastry cutter to score to desired size.
  2. Bake for 15-20 minutes at approx 210 degrees Celsius, or until golden in colour. Cooking time is crucial. It is advisable to test at 15 minutes for crunch. You can always cook a little longer, but if they burn they are ruined, so keep a close eye on them!
  3. Makes about 300grams of crackers (dry weight)
  4. Store in an airtight container and enjoy with cheese, dips or relish etc.

Variations: You could add different seeds (whichever you like!) and add some ground cumin or grated parmesan to change up the flavours – let your imagination run wild!
