Pumpkin Roll

READY IN: 32mins
Top Review by Amy in Hawaii

I had a chance to do a taste comparison between my recipe #103201, 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.
