To Sweet or to Savory? That Is the Question. How Will You Lebküchen?

Lebküchen often brings images of baked goods decked out in sugar, chocolate, or decorated with almonds to mind. Lebküchen is, after all, the quintessential Christmas treat in Germany. However, the beauty of cooking is that there is always potential to unlock something new.

Savory, Spice, & Everything Nice | When it comes to our tasting palate, sweet foods indulge us with the taste of sugar or honey, whereas savory foods are full-flavored and spicy. Does this mean that the two must remain exclusive to one another? Not at all. With a blend of cinnamon, allspice, cardamom, and cloves, Lebküchen can add a hint of coziness to savory foods for an unforgettable result.

Get a Spice That Can Do Both | The beauty of Lebküchen is that you can add it to just about any recipe. If you want to follow the sweet route, the comforting taste of cloves and the spice of cinnamon creates the best waffles, cookies, or cakes you have ever tasted. Need some savory inspiration? We’ve got you covered. The sweetness of Lebküchen pairs beautifully with the earthiness of mushrooms, making our Lebküchen stuffed mushroom recipe an instant hit. If you are hosting a holiday dinner, your guests will be blown away by the savory-sweet combination of our Lebküchen short ribs. From traditional to unique, our Lebküchen Blend can truly do it all.
