Rated 1 out of 5 by Spen from Trips thermal overload I love my Vitamix and I thought it could do anything until I encountered this recipe. For me this simply does not work. It trips the thermal overload in the Vitamix and makes it inoperable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by K_Sarah from Delicious! This recipe was super easy to follow and turned out PERFECTLY! I opted to add a lemon glaze to the warm pound cakes, and it made it even better. Perfect texture and taste - and this was my first time making a pound cake! I can't believe how easy it was to do in the Vitamix!
