This is a reblog of an old post of mine. It’s a recipe for lebkuchen which is a very delicious German treat eaten over the Christmas season. I usually make it every year but this year I’ve adopted the British tradition of baking mince pies instead. But this is recipe that must be shared. So here ’tis.
Lebkuchen is a delicious German Christmas treat. The English translation is gingerbread but it doesn’t actually contain any ginger. I got this excellent recipe for lebkuchen a few years ago from a German friend and have been making it every Christmas ever since.
