These wholemeal seeded crackers are fantastic topped with cheese or dipped in hummus.

Starters & nibbles


Store crackers separately from cakes or they will turn soggy. Once opened or baked, crackers will usually keep for up to two weeks.


Roll cracker dough out as thinly as possible to obtain the crispest texture when baked: try using a pasta machine to roll out the dough. Pastry or ravioli cutters are useful for creating different shapes. Before baking, brush the cracker dough with water or milk and try sprinkling over toppings such as sea salt, poppy seeds or sesame seeds.
