Yes, alright, Christmas is 14 days away. And yes I will begin a 12-day count down full of exciting recipes and ideas for you to follow as you bah-humbug your way through the last week of school or work that sees you trudging home in the pitch black, laughed at by various contortions of fairy lights before you stamp and sneeze your way into a house that is decorated (or half perhaps) for the festive season. Just me? Heh, I joke. No, even I admit that I find the morning frost sunbathing on the rooftops in the pink-yellow sun at least a little beautiful. But onto the content!
Christmas is almost here but we still have 2 weeks to go so here is a delightful recipe for Lebkuchen – a traditional German gingerbread-style biscuit. Their name comes from life or favourite food and the earlier “honey cake” can be traced back to the Ancient Egyptians and Greeks. They’ve got that Christmas-market feel without making you think you’ve already overdone it before the big day. Wrap them up in cellophane and tie with some straw or a ribbon for a wonderful gift!
