MY REVIEW

There are several Pumpkin Roll recipes out there. After my mother and I made these we've never searched for another one. They can be tricky to make but if you master them you'll make them a holiday staple. This is more of a dense cake; it?s not so much light and airy as it is decadent. My mom and I make ours without nuts on top but if you're looking for something to create a more diverse texture make 2 one with and one without. You can never have enough roll! I've easily made over 50 of these bad boys so here are a couple tips. When it comes to rolling these, use an old pillowcase instead of a dish towel of cheese cloth. The linen is finer and comes away from the cake much easier. When you roll them the first time right out of the oven, make sure you're rolling it as if the icing is in there. The first couple inches are the hardest. If you?re using a pillow case roll the end of the pillow case up tight until you get to the end of the cake and continue loosely, sort of like a spacer for the very inside. You don't want a super tight roll because it will make the cake crack and you won't have a lot of room for error when you add the icing later. As far as the icing goes, it?s hard to mess up a cream cheese icing. It goes great with everything! My family does the 6 ounces of cream cheese but experiment with the thickness and adding additional flavors. I?m going to try a little flavored syrup in mine next time. For those living on the edge try using your favorite dark rum as an extra treat! Be careful not to get it too thin or you'll have icing everywhere :) cut the log partially frozen for more precise spiraling and use a hot knife. Wiping off the knife each time will properly show off just how hard you worked to get these delicious rolls made from scratch!

Yummy if you like pumpkin rolls, although I think I would add about 1/2 the icing. Both my husband and I prefer less icing.

This was great! It split a little on top but not to bad. This was my first time making a roll. I will master it with no splits lol
