Rated 4 out of 5 by WFPBcindy from Valentine’s Day Wonderfulness This is a recipe that I will save for special occasions due to its richness. I would have given a 5 star but wasn’t sure about how many avocados to use as Haas avocado are small and Florida size are big. I ended up using 4 Haas avocados. I used walnuts as I couldn’t find hazelnuts and didn’t get the goji powder. Used honeysuckle powder instead. Will try the goji next time. Be sure to refrigerate overnight as recipe states-flavor & consistency much better. Good job Vitamix but please be more precise on amounts needed. I have eggplant lentil burger recipe right now but again wasn’t sure about eggplant size (I used 2 med). We shall see as it was drippy when I refrigerated it. BTW, I am loving my Vitamix!

Rated 1 out of 5 by DouglasinFW from Size must be wrong The recipe claims to make a 124-cm torte, which is almost 50 inches. So I am left wondering what size pan to use. 6", 8" or 9"?
