Knäckebröd recipe

Good old knäckebröd. I made it for the first time. This recipe is using sourdough, so the taste is very intense. It really does taste like sourdough. If you do not like that you can replace the sourdough with yeast. Any kind of flour can be used as well, do dare to experiment.

recipe from DN makes 9 rounds

1 dl rye sourdough (or 15 gr yeast)
2 dl water
4 dl rye flour
3 dl flour (I used white spelt flour)
1/2 tbsp honey
1 tsp salt

sesame seeds, fennel seeds, caraway seeds...

Put all the ingredients in a bowl and knead until you have smooth dough, about 5 minutes. Cover with a plastic foil and let it rise in the fridge over night.
Heat oven to 200 C and put a baking sheet inside. Knead the dough a bit and divide in 9 pieces, each about 80 gr heavy. Roll out each piece in a circle, about 18 cm big, make a small whole in the middle, brush with a bit of water, sprinkle your favourite spice/seeds and pick with a fork.

Carefully transfer to the hot baking sheet and bake for about 10 to 15 minutes. Have an eye on it as when it starts to burn it really goes fast. Take out and let cool.
