  • 1/2 cup (112g) Sourdough Starter, unfed/discard
  • 1/2 cup (56g) Bread Flour
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 2 tbsp (28g) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 tbsp dried herbs of your choice
  • Oil for brushing
  • Flaky salt (for sprinkling on top)



To make sourdough crackers, combine sourdough starter, flour, salt, butter, and herbs to create a smooth, cohesive dough that isn't too sticky. Shape it into rectangular slabs, cover it with plastic wrap, and refrigerate for around 30 minutes until firm.

Preheat the oven to 180°C. Roll the dough thinly (about 2mm) on lightly floured baking paper. Place the baking paper and dough on a baking sheet, brush with oil, sprinkle with salt, and cut the dough into squares using a pizza cutter. Prick each square a few times with a fork to prevent it from puffing up while baking.

Bake the crackers for 20-25 minutes, rotating the baking sheet halfway through to ensure even browning. Once they're lightly browned, remove them from the oven and allow them to cool on a rack.

To store the crackers, wrap them tightly and keep them at room temperature for up to a week. If you need to store them for longer, freeze them instead.
