ingredients

directions

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking soda and salt. Add the buttermilk, brown sugar and honey and stir a few strokes. Add the raisins, pecans, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, flax seed and rosemary and stir just until blended.
  • Pour the batter into two 4x 8-inch loaf pans that have been sprayed with non-stick spray. Bake for about 45 minute until golden and springy to the touch. Remove from the pans and cool on a wire rack.
  • The cooler the bread, the easier it is to slice really thin. You can leave it until the next day or pop it in the freezer. Slice the loaves as thin as you can and place the slices in a single layer on an ungreased cookie sheet. Try slicing and baking one loaf and popping the other in the freezer for later. Reduce the oven heat to 300°F and bake them for about 15 minutes then flip them over and bake for another 10 minutes, until crisp and deep golden. Try not to eat them all at once!

    Love these! They are more delicious than the store-bought ones. I make batches in mini loaf tins, and then freeze the loaves for future use. It's so easy to toast up a batch when friends come over, or to give as a gift. They are the 1st thing gone on every cheese plate.

    Made half a recipe but used almonds, dates, sunflower seeds, sesame seeds. DH loved them and will make them all the time. Great by themselves or with parmesan cheese. Baked in mini loaves (2) for 30 min., then second bake for 2- 15 min. bakes.

    These turned out fabulously! A little tough to slice, but the crackers are just like the real thing! I'll be trying this recipe in many combinations. Thank you!

    Great recipe and so easy to make substitutions or alterations for taste. I used sunflower seeds, pistachios, craisins, orange zest for example. A definite keeper!

    Excellent recipe! Almost identical to the real thing. I followed the recipe almost exactly. The only substitution I made was 1 cup of water, 1 cup of whole milk and 5 tbsp of vinegar for the buttermilk. I have made these twice and would recommend NOT using silicon baking pans as it expands horizontally. The second time around, I used mini loaf pans and only baked them for 30 minutes. These browned nicely and made perfect size crackers! Thanks for the recipe!
