Reroll the cake again while peeling away the parchment paper.

Wrap the roll in plastic wrap and place into the fridge overnight

This is my favorite time of year because of all the yummy pumpkin recipes. I need to make this cake roll, even though I have never attempted to make one before.

I have always wanted to make a cake roll. Now is the best time now that I know I have a good recipe.

I haven’t eaten something that has pumpkin spice that’s why I can’t imagine how it tastes like. But your cake look so soft and moist. This got me wondering where I can buy that ingredient. 🤔

I’d love to have this for breakfast but I think it also would be great for dessert! The problem with breads here is that we eat them all in one sitting!

I don’t think I’ve eaten much with pumpkin in it but this sounds so tasty and I love a swiss roll style x
