Swiss Honey Cake (Lebkuchen)

"from "The Swiss Cookbook". I haven't made it yet. To reduce dryness, try lowering the heat to 325 and test for doneness before removing. (Alternatively, this may be due to too much flour. Other honey cake recipes look like they use about 3.5 cups.)"

    This was OK. Flavor was nice but found it a bit dry. Maybe with a glaze over it would be nice. Thanks Made for ZWT 2011
