My daughter uses cheese cloths with good results. Good luck!

I make this every year at Christmas, so that every one gets their own pumpkin roll. I have tried everything, but the cake still sticks to the towel and some of the crust comes off on the towel. I have used a very thin towel, a flour sack towel, parchment paper, and even a pillow case. The pillow case seems to work the best, with lots of powdered sugar. It still sticks, but not as badly. Any suggestions? It is getting very frustrating. My grandson's girlfriend wants the recipe and I would love for her to be able to avoid this frustration.

I have made this recipe for years with rave reviews. It has always turned out well so I never felt the need to read the reviews...until today! I must say, Jami and Jo, you two are geniuses! I LOVE BOTH OF YOUR SUGGESTIONS! I'm going to try using Jami's suggestion and roll the cake in the parchment. If this works, you sure have saved me a huge mess...and I will owe you for life! Thanks for taking the time to leave comments!

For high altitude, I made this adjustment: Added 2-3 tablespoons flour Reduced Baking Soda by 1/8 teaspoon. Reduced Baking Powder by 1/8 teaspoon Decreased Sugar by 1-2 tablespoons

I was running short of time so I let the baked pumpkin cool flat on the towel and then cut it in 3 pieces and layered it will the filling!! SO EASY if you are afraid of making a pumpkin roll! and always a hit!!

Fantastic treat to have for Thanksgiving week. I also make toasted cinnamon pecans to sprinkle over the roll and around the serving plate, which adds a nice autumn flavor to it as well.

I make about 10 of these every Thanksgiving and the people I give them to ask for more

i added 2-4 drops of orange extract instead of vanilla, and it was excellent, made it seem a little "lighter" when eating it, and sooo refreshing.

Love this recipe! I made my first pumpkin roll on Monday and it turned out fantastic! It was trial run for Thanksgiving. I have my freshly made pumpkin roll for tomorrow cooling. I had a slight crack but nothing that was too noticeable. I will master this without the cracks eventually! My boys who are super picky gave this rave reviews. Yum!
