Magenbrot is a small, sweet glazed biscuit that shares many similarities with a gingerbread cookie.[1] The name of the dish directly translates to ‘stomach-bread’ [2] as it is believed to help improve digestion.[3] This recipe originated in Germany and is usually sold in Christmas markets all over Europe.[4] It is known by many names including Lebkuchen, Honigkuchen, Pfefferkuchen, Gewürzkuchen, or Kräuterbrot. Appearance and Composition[edit] Magenbrot is known for its diamond shape and dark brown exterior.[5] This pastry is made with flour, wheat, baking soda, star anise, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg and sweetened using honey and sugar. Candied orange, lemon peel, and hazelnut are also added for flavoring.[6] Some types of Magenbrot are coated with a sweet Cocoa glaze.[7] It is usually prepared over a period of two days.[8] The dough is made beforehand and left for an entire night so it can settle properly.

It is then separated into small pieces and baked in an oven. See also[edit] How to make macarons - some tips and tricks.
