Berner Hazelnut Lebkuchen
Berner Hazelnut Lebkuchen is a sweet pastry that will leave you wanting more! It consists of an aromatic mass of ground hazelnuts, sugar, and egg white. This marzipan-like hazelnut mixture is only baked briefly to be crispy and still soft on the inside. Moreover, it contains neither flour nor water. Mostly they are cut out in the shape of a bear and painted with food coloring. Furthermore, this treat is gluten and lactose-free.
The Berner hazelnut gingerbread is not gingerbread at all. Therefore, you won’t find many classic gingerbread ingredients with him. Honey, for example, contains very little, if any. In addition, only cinnamon is used of the many exotic spices normally used for baking gingerbread. In addition, the term Läckerli comes from the Old High German Leckon for lick.
These hazelnut gingerbreads are produced throughout the canton and in the city of Bern all year round. They are traditionally regarded as festive pastries and are particularly popular as gift items.
