i goofed, and forgot the earth balance in the dough, and had to take the dough out of the machine and mix (moosh, moosh moosh) it up by hand until it was incorporated, and even in that instance (cuz I'm a moron) it still came out perfectly. LOL...so..I think whatever way to put the ingredients together should be fine, "as long as they all make it in there."
Also, to be sure, pre-mixing of the flaxseed would be important, the rest is just to be tossed in, or according to your manual, but I just kinda toss in all in there and pray for the best ;-) I haven't been disappointed yet (at least not with operational problems, although operator error, that's always another story!)
and I'm making these for another vegan potluck tonight ^_^
It is my signature "dish" for the potluck and everyone says these things are "to die for"
