Crispy Spelt crackers

Today it is all about easy baking for some delicious weekend treats- crispy and addictive spelt crackers are on the menu! This recipe is originally adapted from NY times, its popularity keeps growing because it requires minimal effort only containing 3 ingredients; water, spelt flour and salt. I used a spelt flour mixture that also has some semolina in it so these crackers turned out more rustic and dense than the crackers from the original recipe. Right now, I’m making a new batch and enjoying the ready cooled ones with some passion fruit, mint leaves and a vanilla espresso. A perfect easy friday treat!

Direction

  • 1 1/2 cups organic spelt flour (I used a mixture of spelt/semolina)
  • 4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup water
  • Maldon salt for garnishing

Preheat the oven to 175 C. In a large bowl, dissolve the salt in 1/2 cold water. Add in the spelt flour and knead dough into a ball. Flour a baking sheet and roll out the dough into a thin sheet. (You need plenty of flour to prevent the dough from sticking to the rolling-pin) Brush some water over the dough for a glossy finish as it tends to dry out quite easily. Then prick the dough all over with a fork. Roughly sprinkle some Maldon salt on top. Score the dough into grids for neat crackers. Bake for about 15-25 minutes until crackers are golden and crisp. Break into pieces once still hot and leave to cool before serving.
