Gingerbread from Lucerne, the story: There has always been a place for gingerbread on market stalls and at fairs. It was customary for a young man to offer his sweetheart a gingerbread cake, which she would acceptwith delight. Since the Middle Ages, Lucerne has seen the creation of a large number of such delicacies influenced by its governors and merchants. The recipe: Add the lemon juice to the cream and leave for a few minutes. Mix together the cream, pear puree sugar, mixed spices and bicarbonate of soda. Add the flour. Mix until well blended and then add the nuts. Fill a flan ring (24 cm diameter, 6 cm high) and bake in the oven for 50 minutes at 190 oC. Serve cold.
