Festive Food Fair: Lebkuchen-Muffins

Festive Food Fair Anna from Morsels & Musings invites all food bloggers to write about any festive or “special occasion food”. The day after tomorrow it’s the 1st of december and all children – including me – open the first door of their Advent calendar and on Sunday the new Christian year begins with the 1st of 4 Advent sundays. In this season the family will gather around the table with a nicely decorated Advent wreath talking and eating homemade x-mas goodies .

The smell of Lebkuchen-spice is in the air. Since my children made their own Lebkuchen-spice in 2004 it’s a must to bake again the

This time we didn’t make the spice ourselves. I used Lebkuchen-spice Nürnberg-style with cinnamon, coriander seeds, cloves, star-anise, all-spice, nutmeg and ginger. I got this mixture with the DFssgF-parcel, the German version of blogging by mail.
