Too sweet, cut back on filling sugar to 1 1/4 cup and would be better if it was blended with whipped cream or something to lighten it.
Super easy to make and full of flavor!
I served this dessert, along with 3 others, at our family Christmas dinner. While the two other desserts were well received, this cake roll was the favorite. The filling does taste like chai; I did use both the pumpkin pie spice and the cardamom, which I like a lot. The cake was easy to roll and had great flavor. It's definitely a recipe to keep and make again.
