I think that Lebkuchen is my preferred German Christmas Cake, if I should use between Lebkuchen and Stollen (another favourite of mine). So when I found a bag of Lebkuchen species during a week-end tour to Germany, I decided to try to bake my very own Lebkuchen. And I had so high expectations about doing that, so while I am writing this blog post I am feeling very disappointed !!!! These Lubkuchen will never ever be baked again in my kitchen !!!!!! They are not tasting at all like Lebkuchen !!!!! So please do NOT try this recipe.
I will looking around for some other Lebkuchen recipes to try in my kitchen, as I have not given up of making/baking my own Lebkuchen.
