Pumpkin Cake Roll

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Charlotte J

Don't over bake it needs to stay moist so it will not crack when you spread filling on it. I also double fold the towel end that I start the rolling process with. Just handles better if the center of the roll is larger.

This is one addictive fall dessert, Charlotte. I'm going to use it for next year's Thanksgiving dinner. There's nothing I would change about this recipe. It's perfect. The filling is outstanding.
