Sesame Sourdough Crackers

My cousin sister loves baking too and she has been baking with sourdough recently also. There is usually plenty of sourdough discards and she is exploring ideas for other items to bake besides bread. She introduced me to these sourdough crackers.  I am so happy with the result. It is a really delicious treat that is not difficult to prepare.

Recipe adapted from here with some modification.

Recipe - Sesame Sourdough Discard Crackers


300g sourdough discard
75g extra virgin olive oil

Dried ingredients:
90g all purpose flour
45g whole wheat flour
45g rye flour
1 tsp sea salt
2 tsp baking powder

4 tbsp black sesame seeds, toasted

  1. In a bowl of mixer, combine all dried ingredients, add in sourdough discard and olive oil. Mix with paddle attachment until all well combined. Shape into a ball and cover with cling film and rest for 30 minutes.  You may also leave in the fridge overnight and bake the next day.  
  2. Preheat oven to 180C.
  3. Cut 4 pieces of parchment paper that fit into your baking tray or use silicone baking mats.
  4. Transfer the dough onto the counter top and divide into 4 portions.  Shape each portion to a ball.
  5. Roll each ball on parchment paper to as thin as possible you can, like paper thin.  Sprinkle some flour if the dough stick to your rolling pin. 
  6. Cut with knife or pizza cutter to your desired size.
  7. Transfer the whole thing to baking tray.  Bake at preheated oven for 10 - 12 minutes until lightly golden brown and crispy.  Rotate the pan half way of baking. 
  8. Transfer to a cooling rack and repeat baking with the rest of remaining dough.
  9. Keep the crackers in an airtight container.
