Looking for the best sourdough cracker recipes on the internet? Look no further.
Here, you’ll find a range of delicious sourdough cracker recipes to satisfy even the fussiest of cracker eaters.
I’ve tried to create a list of the best sourdough cracker recipes with some variety – so there’s different flavors, textures and flours included.
Sourdough crackers are a fantastic way to use up a lot of sourdough discard in one recipe.
A lot of cracker recipes use 200g of starter or more – which is great for ensuring your starter discard doesn’t go to waste.
Best Sourdough Cracker Recipe Tips
When making sourdough crackers, there are a few things that you can do to ensure that you get the best possible crackers.
Here are some tips to ensure you get the tastiest sourdough crackers ever!
- Don’t use discard that is too old, particularly if the recipe you use includes a large amount. You don’t want crackers that are too sour and old discard can taste really bad!
- You don’t have to use discard to make crackers. You can just feed your starter for the purpose of making crackers. Using an active, bubbly starter is totally fine. See how many crackers you can make now!
- For super crispy crackers, roll the dough super thin. It can help to place the dough between two pieces of parchment paper. A pasta maker can help to get the dough super thin if you have one.
- If your cracker dough is sticky when you first mix it, just add a little extra flour to help create a more dough like consistency. You want to be able to touch the dough without it sticking to your fingers.
- If your dough is sticking to the rolling pin – but you don’t want to add more flour (you don’t want to make the dough too dry) – place the dough between two sheets of parchment paper and roll. It will ensure that the dough does not stick at all – and your rolling pin will stay clean.
- If the cracker dough contains a lot of butter, it can help to place the dough in the fridge after rolling just to firm up before cutting. This is especially important if you are baking in a warm environment.
- Get a cracker roller to make cutting super easy! A good cracker roller will cut a few trays of crackers in seconds with no fuss. You’ll find a great cracker roller here.
- Low and slow is the best way to bake sourdough crackers. You don’t want to burn them. While a baking temperature is always given in the recipe – you will need to make adjustments for your oven. Move the trays around until you find the best level where they don’t burn too quickly.
Keeping Sourdough Crackers Fresh
It’s best to store sourdough crackers in glass or tin. Storing them in plastic can cause them to go soft a lot sooner.
Remember sourdough crackers do not contain preservatives like the crackers you buy at the store – so they won’t have a long shelf life.
Sourdough crackers look lovely stored in recycled glass jars. They make lovely gifts too (guess what the neighbors are getting this Christmas?!).
If you have some crackers that have gone a little stale you can refresh them. Place them on a parchment lined baking tray. Lightly spray with water and place into a hot oven for just a few minutes to crisp up.
