Makes 64 breadsticks

Home made breadsticks are a delicious and economical snacking treat. Here is the recipe to make them from scratch with the option of adding some tasty linseeds, poppy seeds or sesame seeds. For a small quantity of breadsticks take 100g dough from your next bread making session, roll it into 8 sticks which can be cooked before your bread goes into the oven. Children always enjoy making breadsticks as they can be made, baked and ready to eat relatively quickly.

  1. Line a couple of large baking trays with parchment and preheat the oven.
  2. Put the flour, yeast, sugar, and salt into a large bowl and blend them together.
  3. Stir in the water, and when everything looks craggy and lumpy, stir in the oil.
  4. Using your hands gather everything together into a doughy mass.
  5. Knead the dough in the bowl for 100 presses or pick it up and throw it back into the bowl 100 times. Avoid adding flour if possible.
  6. Cut the dough into five equal pieces and each of these into eight smaller pieces.
  7. Roll each piece of dough into a cylinder the thickness of a pencil and lay in on the prepared baking trays, making sure the breadsticks do not touch each other.
  8. To dress the breadsticks with seeds, sprinkle the chosen seeds over the breadsticks.
  9. Gently roll each breadstick back and forth so a few seeds stick to each one.
  10. Cover with oiled cling film and leave in a warm place to rise for 15 - 20 minutes.
  11. Remove the cling film and bake for 8 – 10 minutes until golden brown.
  12. Leave to cool on a wire rack.
