Gingerbread Cake

The holiday season always evokes visions of gingerbread cookies or fancy gingerbread houses, but rarely will you see anyone praising the gingerbread cake…unless you come from a Germanic country.

Lebkuchen is the German version, which actually comes in many different forms. The main characteristic is a type of ginger spiced flatbread that is sweetened traditionally with honey.

My holiday version is much lighter – a bit cake-like actually – and I have intentionally made this version without any added fats or oil…because, you know it is the holiday season and I assume there is a bit of splurging going on with respect to sugar and fat.

Yield: makes about 24-36 pieces
