    Sourdough crackers

    Sourdough Crackers with chili and garlic should never finish at my place. Before the batch gets over, I have to prepare another batch, otherwise, only God saves me. The goodness of Whole-wheat flour and butter make my sourdough crackers a healthy snack for munching on tea or coffee. So far I have tried many flavors of these crackers but the favorite of my family is with garlic and chili.

    I have been baking yummy snacks for past 4 months. Interestingly, I have never seen my crackers staying on the shelf for more than 3 days, no matter how much I bake them.

    I mean, when I started working with sourdough, my first question in mind was what to do with the discarded sourdough starter. The answer was sourdough crackers.

    The starter I have used for my recipe is the one that I have created from the scratch. It’s a whole-wheat starter with 100% hydration, very much active and flavourful as compared to my APF starter.

    [bctt tweet=”The journey of making your own starter is equally emotional and overwhelming as the journey of being a mother” username=”soniagupta16″]

    When I talk about starters I feel so connected, just like a mother speaking about her child. From creating it to feeding on time, makes me remind of my journey as a mother with my son.

    In March 2018 my friend Sue Lau selected the theme of crackers. The crackers theme got me excited because it was time for me share my homemade sourdough crackers recipe with buttery garlicky and chili flavor. Believe it or not, this amazingly easy cracker recipe will even make your kids fall in love with these crackers.

    How to make Sourdough Crackers

    In a large mixing bowl mix wheat flour, salt, sugar, garlic powder, chili flakes, and red paprika. In a different pan add butter and water and heat them together until butter melts. Now add the melted butter and water solution to dry ingredients.

    TIP: Melting butter with water prevents burning of butter while heating it.

    Sourdough Crackers Flour and butter

    Add sourdough starter to the mixture and gently fold all the ingredients to bind it to a soft dough. Do not knead it else the crackers will become chewy.

    Sourdough Crackers Dough kneading

    Cover the dough ball with cling wrap and let it rest for 30 min in refrigerator.

    TIP: Refrigerating dough will solidify butter and will make it easier for you to handle the dough.

    Sourdough Crackers Dough for crackers

    After 30 minutes, take the dough out from the refrigerator and roll it into a thin sheet of a ¼ inch thickness. Using a cookie cutter, cut crackers out of it.

    Meanwhile, keep the oven for preheating up to 150 °C.

    Sourdough Crackers cutting

    Place all the crackers on a greased baking tray. Using a fork, prick each cracker. While placing crackers on a tray, leave some space in-between.

    TIP: Pricking the crackers will avoid puffing them up during baking.

    Bake these crackers in a preheated oven at 150 °C for 15 minutes or until edges turn golden.

    Sourdough Crackers before baking

    When completely baked, take the tray out from the oven and transfer the baked sourdough crackers to another tray. Let them cool completely.

    1. Do not knead the dough much after adding butter and starter. Else the crackers will turn chewy.
    2. I have used a cookie cutter with diameter 1.5 inches.
    3. While rolling the sheet, make sure it has even thickness. Else the baking time will vary.
    4. Use both the heating elements to bake crackers.
    5. The time and temperature will remain same for Convection.
    6. You can bake these crackers on a gas stove as well. How? For that check my post “Cookie without oven”.
