I was going to say, it sound almost like a lebkuchen with honey and pepper.  Maybe some gingerbread recipes too, just beefed up with nuts and fruits.  What a good idea though, sounds yummy, even with the in-accurate history.

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.
