I had a chance to do a taste comparison between my Pricilla's Pumpkin Roll, Troy Hakala's #5365. The spices make this a great substitute for pumpkin pie but the cake was not as light and fluffy as the other recipes using baking soda instead of baking powder.

I love this dessert. It is really easy and really impressive.

Yummy. I made two for a Christmas party and there was nothing left. It was the first time I had ever done it, and I was intimidated by the rolling but it was clear and easy to follow and turned out great.
