I made this recipe for my mother-in-law and I never got a piece to taste it but I was told that is was great. It flipped out of the pan perfectly and rolled up without splitting. I'll definitely make this again!

this was wonderful, I filled it with sugar free cool whip and mini chocolate chips....it was gone in 10 minutes...I forgot to use cake flour and used regular flour, but still turned out great.

I tried this one. It tasted good, but not a good as I expected it to. I used lite cool whip and all purpose flour instead of cake flour.
