I have been a student of German for 10 years now. This is the best recipe I have found for Lebkuchen in these ten years. My college professor commented that they taste authintic (he's German) and I also won my boyfriend's heart (or should I say stomach) over with these. My daughter also loved helping me.

The recipe did really well until I added the sesame oil...the sesame overwhelmed the entire mixture. I am wondering if I used the correct type of sesame oil.

Very authentic, and easy to use. I have been looking for a practical Lebkuchen recipe for years, but never found one that properly converted the measurements, ingredients and temperatures for English/American use. I used this recipe this year for Christmas, with much success. The Lebkuchen produced by this recipe can also be used to make a Lebkuchen house.
