I've made it a few times.  My cakes are flatter than what is shown, but that 
is more a matter of the pans.  Panforte is originally referenced in 13th 
Century monastery records from Siena as "honey and pepper cakes", but there 
is no period recipe for this variant although it is similar to contemporay 
lebkuchen and gingerbread.  There is a a period recipe for the more 
bread-like variant under the name panpepato.
