I made this today - assuming that the 3000 gram margarine was a typo and used 300!

Delicious, but is kind of crumbly.


Next time, I may add a bit of oil, or use flax seed boiled in water to bind it better - or do you have another suggestion?

I bet almond extract would be really good in this. Of course I have no idea if almond extract is vegan... it sounds vegan, though.

Could you by any chance convert those to the American measurements? I don't know the metric system :)

Google does though. Enter "100g in pounds" for instance, and see the magic unfold before your eyes!
