Even Better the Next Day

Sandra Cooper from PANAMA CITY, FL

I was a little confused about when to use the 1/4 cup powdered sugar. The recipe ingredients say "1/4 cup + extra for sprinkling", so I put the 1/4 on the towel. Then, later, the recipe says "Sprinkle with 1/4 cup powdered sugar". I didn't use that much in this step. So, when was I supposed to use the "extra for sprinkling"? Nevertheless, the cake roll came out deliciously and the cake part was softer the next day than on the original baking day. Yummy! A definite "make again" recipe.

    Pumpkin Cake Roll

    Anna Wells from West Warwick, RI

    A simple but scrumptious recipe and so easy to make. The pumpkin filling with orange flavor was delicious. However, I did modify it by adding one cup of cool whip to the filling for a creamier taste. This recipe is a keeper!

    Pumpkin & Orange Combo?

    L T from ANCHORAGE, AK

    I never thought orange would complement pumpkin, but it appears to work well. I will try it with pumpkin and apple next, with even less sugar than the recipe calls for.

    Better than Pumpkin Roll

    Pat Pruitt from SPRINGDALE, AR

    We had the family over for dinner and I tried the Orange Pumpkin Roll. The family liked it much better than the Pumpkin Roll which I have used for years. In fact it was at the top of my list of best desserts. It just got moved back one since the Orange Pumpkin Roll topped it. Thanks for all the wonderful recipes you give us. I use this site more than any other for planning meals. I can always come up with something my husband will enjoy. That really pleases me.

    I always have a problem for some reason when I make Angel food cake. But this time for some reason it came out perfect. This Pumpkin Orange roll was so easy to make and very dalicious.
