Club social crackers are really those things that you will taste in the Antilles. They are produced in South America and are available in almost every supermarket on the islands.
Yet it is often difficult to find them in the Netherlands. In the big cities you will come across the club of social crackers at toko's, but if you live outside it, it is difficult to find them.
Making it yourself is a good (and also fun!) Option. A nice extra: you miss all bad ingredients, such as fractionated palm oil and phosphates, that are in the manufactured crackers.
By the way, it is not difficult at all to make your own crackers. If you want crackers that are extra soft and creamy, you can add another teaspoon of milk powder to the following recipe. The crackers therefore color a little more.
Depending on how big you make the club social crackers, you can make about 20-30 crackers from this recipe.
- 300 gr wheat flour
- 1/2 sachet (8 gr) of baking powder
- 1 tablespoon of honey
- 1/2 tsp salt (+ some extra to sprinkle on top)
- 125 gr butter (+ some extra to spread on top)
- 160 ml milk
Preparation club social crackers:
Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Then mix all dry ingredients and stir well.
Add the butter in cubes and knead with the fingertips until you get coarse crumbs.
Finally, add the honey and milk until you get a firm dough.
If the dough is too sticky, you can add some extra flour. Is it too dry? Then add some water.
Roll out the dough to about 3 millimeters thick. Then cut crackers to the shape and size you like.
Prick some holes in each cracker. For example, you can use a fork for this.
Line a baking tray with baking paper and place the crackers on it. Then bake them for about 10 minutes at 200 degrees, or until they are golden.
After baking, immediately remove them from the oven and spread some butter on them. Sprinkle with some salt to taste. Then let the crackers cool completely.
You can store these homemade club social crackers in a sealed box or drum. They stay good there for about 5-7 days.
