Low-Fat Pumpkin Cake Roll Recipe

Pumpkin keeps this cake moist and replaces the oil found in a typical layer cake; so you're getting vitamins, not fat. Serve this one up and your guests will rave—and no one has to know just how easy it was! —Heidi Reinhard, Montpelier, Indiana

Directions

This is sooooooo delicious! I have mad this roll cake 3 times for potlucks/ celebrations and every time it disappears within minutes, with people complementing it and asking for the recipe! It is extremely rich and moist so you don't need a whole ton to feel indulgent. :)

Wonderful, similar to one I make every Thanksgiving. I would not use Splenda, that replaces granulated sugar thsi takes Powdered sugar. The instructions separate the powdered sugar to 1 cup & 1 Tab. for the towel!!
