This was an easy cake roll recipe to put together with ingredients that most people have on hand. However, I might have overbaked mine because it turned out really dry. It tasted kind of like cornbread. I will try this recipe again and see how it turns out.
I love making cake rolls and this recipe was easy to follow. Next time, I will double the filling. Also, I smashed 2 cups up raspberries mixed with sugar and placed this on top of the lemon filling. I also made a raspberry sauce to go over the cake and ice cream topped with Ready Whip.
This was Delicious! I'm not a big fan of the Pumpkin roll so Lemon sounded Great, this was the Bomb!
