This is a near perfect recipe. I swapped out the baking soda for baking powder and added extra cinnamon, used 1/4th tsp of salt. I had no problems "turning the cake onto the towel" .. but, when you go to unroll to frost I could certainly tell why everyone said to put a healthy amount of powdered sugar on the towel.. so REALLY coat your towel. My cakes only baked for 10 minutes until they were done at 375, so. I doubled the recipe and made two rolls; mixing up the cake batters separate but making the icing double batch in the same bowl. Either I put a little too much filling on the first roll (which I don't think I did) or I could have used a bit more icing.. so, maybe make a smidge more icing if you're making two of these. When consulting with my Grandmother (who insisted I wouldn't be able to make this Thanksgiving standard without her recipe) she informed me I probably would crack/break the first one I make and that I should make two, just in case -- but no, no cracks. I'm glad I made two though, they turned out wonderful. Great recipe.. add nutmeg, swap out the soda for powder and don't bake quite as long. And maybe make more filling. Thank you for sharing!
