LEBKUCHEN GINGERBREADS

ONE OF THE FAVORITES

Lebkuchen, also known as Lebzelt, are flat cakes made of rye (and wheat) flour, honey, nuts and all kinds of spices, such as cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, allspice, ginger, coriander, cardamom (gingerbread spice). Particularly noteworthy is the long shelf life of gingerbread. 

Traditionally, I prepare them every year. Orange peel gives a specific flavor, and with icing melts in the mouth. Easy to make, because you do not need to roll and cut out different shapes.
