I said I would ask, and I did. Here is Em's recipe for lebkuchen! I've just copied and pasted her recipe so I hope it makes sense to anyone who wants to give it a try. Ours are glazed with white icing or chocolate, I guess you could do whatever you fancied.
Lebkuchen with wafers
Zest of 1 lemon
Zest of 1 Orange
300g of caster sugar
Mix until pale and creamy.
100g candied lemon peel
100g candied orange peel
350g all purpose flour
250g ground almonds
200g chopped haselnuts
1/4tsp cloves (ground)
40-50 wafers (Oblaten)
Mix the honey, lemon and orange zest into the eggmixture. Mix all the dry ingredients together (flour, almonds, spices, haselnuts, candied peels). Pour the dry mixture a bit at a time into the wet ingredients and combine until you have a sticky dough.
Preheat the oven to 150°C. Put 1 Tablespoon onto a wafer and distrubute it evenly, but it should be higher in the middle then on the edges. Bake them for about 20 minutes or until the edges are slightly golden. Put them aside and let them cool completely.
Coat the Lebkuchen with the desired glazing and let it dry.
200g chocolate coating/couverture
125g icing sugar+1 eggwhite beaten until fluffy and shiny
Lebkuchenspice: mix for 54g, you need only 15g for this recipe.
Lebkuchen is better the longer it can stand and develop the flavours. Thats why they are traditionally made in early November. But you can eat them while there´s still warm and fresh, it´s also delicious
