Oh yum! I can't believe this recipe has gone untried! I made as directed except I had to sub 1/4 cup honey for the other half of the molasses. My all-time favorite dessert to make is a pumpkin roll in the fall & now I can make something just as tasty & beautiful during the rest of the year! The ratio of spices was just perfect. Nothing was overpowering & the cake was moist, light & not too sweet. The filling was the ultimate compliment to the cake, as it had the sweetness mellowed by the tang of the cream cheese & a little boost of spice. We really enjoyed this dessert. Thanks for sharing, Kitty! :) Made for the Unrated Asian recipe tag game.
