This is one of the easiest things I have ever made. Only thing I did differently (because I forgot to add shortening to my grocery list) was used wax paper to line the cooking sheet rather than greasing it. Once it's cool enough to be handled, flip it out onto your powdered towel and gently pull the wax paper off then roll. Moist, moist, moist. I've made it several times and prefer wax paper (with all cakes, actually) to greasing the pans.

Cake comes out a little dry...

I have been making this for over 25 years. I give it to our customers for our company instead of alchol. I was offered $300.00 for the recipe. But it was a friends family recipe I promised NOT to give out. This is easy and awsome. Everyone will be in aw over it. Simple recipe but so you know roll needs to cool at LEAST two hours in the fridge to firm up. It can also cool overnight just so you know. Wrap it in tin foil and it keeps in the freezer for up to 3 months and it is still just as yummy as it was fresh. I ship to my brother in New Jersey from California EVERY YEAR!

Delicious but my cake fell apart when i rolled it up. Any ideas what i'm doing wrong?

This is the easiest pumpkin roll recipe I've ever made. It's delicious as well. Two hints to help it turn out every time: 1) Spray the pan with cooking oil spray, then line with parchment paper to make the cake turn out flawlessly, and 2) Be sure to sprinkle powdered sugar all over the cotton towel before rolling the cake the first time. Thanks for a keeper, Jackie!

I was a little afraid to try this recipe because of the whole rolling up a cake thing. However, it turned out very, very nice and not too hard at all. Thank you!

If I can bake this anyone can! This was so easy and everybody cleaned it off the plate. I made two for a women's brunch and it was the first and only thing to completely clear off the table. I did take the advice of the woman who said she used the allspice frosting filling. I thought the frosting recipe looked like it would be too sweet, so I just added a 1 tsp of allspice to the cream cheese filling from this recipe and it made the perfect addition. Yum!

I made this using a 17 1/4 x 11 1/2 jelly roll pan. The roll was a little smaller and longer. Very moist and very tasty.
