Rolled Spelt Flakes Cheddar Crackers | © 2011 |

These crackers are unique rolled spelt crackers with cheesy and nutty flavours. They go well with a yogurt dip and delicious with soups too. Rolled spelt can be replaced with old-fashioned rolled oats.

Rolled Spelt Flakes Cheddar Crackers

adapted from Food and Wine
CrackerEgg Wash
  • 45 g Rolled spelt flakes
  • 60 ml Milk
  • 90 g Refined spelt flour
  • 1/4 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 100 g Cheddar, shredded
  • 30 g Cold butter, cut into small pieces
  • 1 Large egg, lightly beaten
  • 1 Egg yolk
  • 1 tbsp Milk
  1. Combine rolled spelt flakes and milk in a bowl. Let stand 5 minutes until rolled spelt flakes soften slightly.
  2. Whisk together refined spelt flour, baking powder and salt until blended. With your fingers, rub in cheese and cold butter until it resembles fine breadcrumbs
  3. Add the egg into the softened spelt flakes, then add into the cheese mixture. Mix until a dough forms. Scrape the dough onto a large sheet of plastic film and gently knead a few times until thoroughly blended. Pat into a round and wrap it up. Chill until firm, about 1 hour.
  4. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper. Work with half of dough at a time. On a lightly floured work surface, cover the dough with a plastic film. Roll out to 1/8-inch / 3 mm thick. Quickly cut the dough into 1 1/2-inch squares or stamp out different shapes. Place them on the prepared baking sheets. Chill until the rounds are firm, about 20 minutes.
  5. Preheat the oven to 190C/375F. Whisk the egg yolk and milk together. Lightly brush the crackers with the egg wash. Bake for about 15 minutes until the crackers are golden brown. | © 2011 | | © 2011 |

Lovely crackers! Will try them with mushroom cream soup. Thanks for sharing dear :)

rita cooks italian 9/8/12 07:18

I like these healthy crackers, rolled oats are more likely to be found in my kitchen cupboard than rolled flakes spelt...I love the idea of serving it with a dip... a ripe cheese is good too!!!

Rosa's Yummy Yums 9/8/12 07:34

So tempting! Those pretty crackers must be addictive.



Guru Uru 9/8/12 07:47

Good cracker recipe Angie. Don't ask me what a cracker tastes like! I never had one before.

The preparation is indeed interesting. Thanks for sharing it.

I bet these crackers are super addictive!

Belinda @zomppa 9/8/12 13:52

Kristy @ the wicked noodle 9/8/12 14:53

What a fun & delicious recipe! They look so good with that yogurt sauce. I love it when something so tasty can be healthy, too.

Toni @ Boulder Locavore 9/8/12 15:25

These look delicious Angie! I love the idea of a cracker with some rustic texture too rather than perfectly flat. May I ask why you've chosen Spelt? A question completely out of personal curiousity. I noted most of your recent recipes use Spelt, and I wondered if you had a certain reason for that over other grain flours. Maybe since I'm gluten free I'm always interested in people's choice of grains! Another beautiful recipe from you!

Emma @ Food, Fork and Good 9/8/12 15:35

Beautiful presentation, these look gorgeous, crumbly & moreish!!!

anne 9/8/12 15:51

Veronica's Kitchen 11/8/12 02:59

Hi Angies, I have never tried spelt flour before but I heard that it is easier to digest than wheat. I'd would love to try this savoury cookies. :)

Amelia 11/8/12 04:33

Hi Angie, this crackers look excellent. But don't think I can find spelt flour in Malaysia, have to go across Singapore to find. Anyway I'm in South, so S'pore is just across the bridge only.LOL

Have a nice weekend.

Amy (Savory Moments) 11/8/12 14:02

I have yet to make homemade crackers, but really need to. I recently bought my first bag of spelt flour and an looking forward to using it!

Jean | Delightful Repast 11/8/12 16:04

Angie, think I'll make them square - see if I can't convert some people I know who are addicted to the little bright orange cheese crackers that glow in the dark!

Rosita Vargas 11/8/12 16:13

Angie's Recipes 11/8/12 20:50

@Toni @ Boulder Locavore
Toni, spelt is the grain I can easily find over here and it's delicious. I have no problem with wheat, but spelt is easier to digest.

LoLy 11/8/12 21:07

WOW, wanna have some with my soup :D


Kiersten @ Oh My Veggies 12/8/12 02:26

These look so delicious and perfectly crispy!

Elisabeth 12/8/12 15:38

So you actually do adapt recipes from American sources...such as Food and Wine which I love so much. I have their books for the last 10yrs series!

Of course, the adaptation had to come with the famous 'spelt' flour that you are so famous with. I could just see a cookbook from you on SPELT flour recipes. Beautiful, crunchy, yummy crackers with the cheddar cheese, and the egg wash on the top...brilliant:)

lena 12/8/12 17:16

it's already so tempting when you say cheesy flavours, i think i will love these!!

Balvinder Ubi 14/8/12 02:36

I see that you you use spelt flour a lot. They look quite appealing and tasty with cheese flavor.

Kathy 15/8/12 20:32

I have never baked with spelt…I think it’s time to change that! These look delicious!

Sawsan@ chef in disguise 15/8/12 20:51

Beautiful pictures Angie
I love crackers and these sound like amazing ones

Lora 16/8/12 03:49

Another great dinkel recipe. Loving i!

Terra 17/8/12 04:56

Look at those cute crackers, I love them!!!! I want one right now, and dip in yogurt....don't mind if I do! :-) Hugs, Terra

Koko 17/8/12 17:59

These look fab! I've never used spelt flakes before!

The Duo Dishes 23/8/12 00:50

It's so great that you introduce us to so many spelt recipes. We've still never used it, but we should give it a try.
