Pumpkin Roll Cake is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 90.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from This was delicious! The cake part was very light and fluffy. Watch it while it bakes - I cooked for less than the recommended time, and mine was still a bit overdone. That left it a bit dry, the only reason I didn't give it five stars. The icing, however, was very easy and tasted awesome. There was lots of it, too. This was my first jelly-roll style cake, and it was not nearly as difficult as I thought it would be. I followed the directions and had no problems. In fact, this was the first cake I ever made that turned out looking like the picture! Overall, it was very tasty, not so difficult, and looked quite impressive. I would recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This Roll was easy to make. It tasted wonderful. My Family realy liked it. We are thinking about making them for our bake sale for the church. I really recommmend this recipe for anyone. My mother is the president of our churchs ladies aide. She said she would give this to them to try. I used to work in a bakery and just let me tell you, this is better then some of there stuff they sell. Going back to making the roll, I never made anything like this before. Some peaple have told me I should chop the nuts up really fine and put it in the filling. Maybe I will try that, but I thin that but be a bad idea. I think that would be to many nuts. Iam thinking about making more and freezing them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The cake receipe is delicious! I like to add just a few more pecans to the batter than the receipe calls for. Be sure not to overbake the cake or it will become too hard to roll. Rolling the cake is the most difficult aspect of this project. I found it easier to cut the long edges off of the cake before rolling. Use plenty of powder sugar on the dish towel before you transfer the cake-this will prevent the dish towel from sticking to the cake. The icing is very good, but you get a richer cream cheese flavor if you reduce the whipped cream by two cups. This will still leave you with plenty of icing to fill, cover, and decorate the cake. Overall - Very nice receipe! I liked it very much and will be making them for family gifts at Christmas time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pumpkin roll cake was very easy to do , need to keep practicing rolling the roll.Great for the holidays for the boss , office or even a gift for teachers. Most ingredients are things we have in the cupboard. When you take out the jelly pan with the pumpkin cake still warm ,sprinlkle some powder sugar on a clean dishtowel . This will keep the cake from sticking onto the dishtowel.Keep the cream cheese mixture at room tempture so you can easily fill the roll and the cover with plastic wrap and keep in refrigerator for about 2hrs. or until ready to serve.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Pumpkin Rolls give the illusion of being hard to make, but really they are quite simple. I use this recipe and make 3-4 pumpkin rolls as gifts around the holidays. Another idea on the topping is to omit either the chocolate or the caramel and have just one flavor, or if you are a purist, use no flavoring in the filling and let the pumpkin stand out!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from My family loved this recipe, it was a new twist on an old favorite! My other recipe does not call for the white chocolate or to be iced. The pecan halves mae an elegant touch also. Very easy to do, looks like you worked much harder than you did!! In fact I made 2, one for home and one for the neighbors! I plan on making 2 more this week to share with friends. I normally make several and freeze them with the other recipe, I am thinking you could do that, by freezing solid before you wrap it up. Then un wrap it while still frozen.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from my mom for most of her life has been a pumpkin pie fan, but when she had my first cake from scratch and pumpkin roll for that fact, she has been converted. however my family is not a huge fan of cool whips, and such, so i made the first one with 1/3rd of the amount and it was Delicious and i even made it with half of the amount, and it turned out great too. I didn't decorate the outside and had enough to do filling for two roll cakes. its so easy, i cleaned as i went to the following step, it worked out great. i serve a slice with a dollop of the filling on the side and sprinkle pecan halves, it looks fancy and if the person loves more filling topping than its great and for those who don't they can chose not to use it. it makes everyone happy... I love this site. and I am excited to make more.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I have made a pumpkin roll cake every Thanksgiving, Christmas, & New years Holiday celebration for many years. My youngest son would be very disappointed if it was not one of our holiday desserts! He always sneaks the leftovers (if there are any) home with him! My recipe is slightly differnt for the filling & I do not ice the roll, I simply dust with powdered sugar.
