Making a Cake Roll
When making a cake roll, to keep the cake from cracking as you roll it up, be sure you’re not overbaking the cake. Most cake rolls bake in 10-15 minutes. Check your cake at 8-9 minutes and watch it closely until it tests done. Second, cool for 5 minutes, then invert pan onto a towel. Roll up the cake in the towel; cool on a wire rack.
