Magenbrot (Stomach Bread)

Updated: Dec 9, 2019

My family recently went to a German Market downtown and came back bearing gifts, okay well one gift: Magenbrot.

To be honest, that was the only vegan thing they brought home and I was apprehensive to try it. I mean it is named stomach bread after all. It looked like a halved piece of rye bread with a sugary glaze on top.

No thank you!

... But as I bit into it, my tastebuds sang, "Hallelujah!". The next day I set out to make my own. The traditional Magenbrot is a soft, sweet glazed biscuit that is quite similar to a gingerbread cookie. The warm spices co-mingle perfectly with the citrus undertones. If you don't have time to go to a German Market, this will give you a similar taste!

The gingerbread spice listed in the recipe consists of:

  • 1 T Ground Ginger

  • 1 T Ground Cinnamon

  • ½ T Ground Cloves

  • ¼ t Nutmeg

You can use this as a base for the Gingerbread Spice or find another one online!

What you should know about this Vegan Magenbrot recipe:

  1. It is 100% Vegan (aka there is zero dairy, egg, or any animal product in here)

  2. Easy & quick. Time is so essential, so I wanted to make this easy vegan dessert as quick as possible. Seriously, you can make this in less than an hour.

  3. Perfectly Sweet. It's like gingerbread & bread met and made a beautiful heaven.

Some Final Thoughts & Tips:

  • Glaze? You can eat this with or without the glaze, still tastes ah-mazing.

  • On Storing: Store your leftover cookies in an airtight container for up to one week.
