Aunt Rhea’s Lebkuchen recipe and this recipe was handed down from her mother’s father. (So from the 1800’s)
A double guest blog today!
This evening I heard from two dear friends.we met at Fort Knox, Kentucky in 1975. (Both were Army midwives -now retired, one delivered my son Mark in 1976)
Baked by Linda in Massachusetts – used light brown sugar she had on hand and it came out fine
And this batch baked by Kristin in Florida whose husband says it tastes like his mother’s -baked in Germany
Thanks for sharing your photos with me and all my blog followers,
and here is a response to the to the Annual Lebkuchen Baking post of 2016
My lebkuchen recipe is really a lot different….has honey and a bit of baking soda and is rolled into rectangle cookies. Then the icing has lemon juice and grated lemon peel. I think I’ll try your recipe along with mine this year. Oh, mine has chopped blanched almonds along with the chopped fruit. Different part of Germany, probably. Mine is from Bamberg and Wurzburg area. Pat Kelly
