This is a really great recipe!!!! This comes together perfectly!!! The flavors are great and the cake is moist, not spongy. I used a 15 X 10 (38 X 25cm) jelly roll pan and I baked mine for 13 minutes. I used pecan chips in the filling. Cooled for 20 minutes before un-rolling. Also, used a bar towel that doesn't have a lot of fuzzies on it and they are thin too so it's easy to roll the cake. Thank you so much for posting, will definitely make again especially for Fall celebrations!!!!
This is an excellent recipe. I have made it for many years. My DM request this every year for Christmas. Try it , you will love it! Thanks for posting.
I just made this within the last week (except it doesn't ask for as much cream cheese and the walnuts are sprinkled on the outside of the pumpkin roll). This is a wonderful recipe and should be tried by all who dare to work with actual "rolling" part of the recipe. It's really not that difficult. I don't like pumpkin pie, but I like this!
