We are deeply saddened by the passing of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

Our thoughts are with the The Royal Family at this incredibly sad time as we join the nation in mourning the loss of our beloved Sovereign.

May she rest in peace.

Paprika and chili sourdough crackers


200 gr of discarded sourdough starter

120 gr of plain flour (You can mix any flour. I use plain flour and/or wholemeal flour, splet flour etc.)

30 ml of olive oil (any other oil will do if you don't have any)

1/2 tsp of sea salt flakes

1 tbsp of paprika

t tsp of smoked paprika

1tsp of garlic powder

1tsp of chili powder

1tsp of rosemary (optional)

Some black pepper


  1. Mix everything together in a dough ball.
  2. Wrap in cling film and let is rest for at least 30 minutes to max 24 hours.
  3. When ready to bake, pre-heat the oven (175 degrees Celsius)
  4. Separate the dough in 2, then each ball in 4.
  5. Using a rolling pin, flatten the dough between two sheets of baking parchment, so it gets quite thin (not paper thin or it will burn in the oven).  I've never tried, but you could use a pasta machine if you have one.
  6. Sprinkle with water and sea salt flakes.
  7. Bake on the parchment sheet  for around 15 minutes. As ovens are different, you will need to check regurlarly. The maximum I have done was 20 minutes. It all depends on the thickness of the crackers.
  8. Let them cool for a few minutes. They can be kept in a tin for several days.
