Pumpkin Roll

My cooking board is obsessed with pumpkin these days, so this recipe for pumpkin roll has been floating around for a few weeks now. We all know I'm not much of a baker, but this was so simple I figured I'd give it a shot.

I cut off this end piece to make the edge nice for the photo and just had to give it a try, right?

I absolutely loved this. I cut off another slice for SP and he was also a fan. I was looking forward to having this for breakfast all week. Unfortunately things went a little downhill from there. I wrapped the roll in plastic wrap, as per the recipe, and stuck it in the fridge. The next day when I unwrapped it, I noticed the cake was a little slimy. I asked around and it seems I should have dusted the outside with powdered sugar and loosely covered it instead. I'm going to try to save the cake, but I think this might be something I need to make again.
Pin It!
