They are for my daughter's party for the parade on Sunday. I am sure they will get the same raving reviews that are here in this forum. I will let you know.

SO made a couple of pumpkin cake rolls. They are an annual favorite. https://www.verybestbaking.com/recip...-pumpkin-roll/

I modified the recipe so she could make two slightly smaller rolls (13x9) instead of on larger one (15x10).

Sounds similar to a pumpkin cake recipe I tried recently (but it had less egg). I tried it a 2nd time with my adaptations, i.e. grated orange rind (for zing factor) + increased the spices....still dullsville. Had to make a limejuice icing to make it more palatable and, when even that didn't cut it, I topped the icing with glace ginger and served the slices spread with a good quality lemon curd...then just about acceptable!

How did yours taste? Not as nondescript as mine I hope.

What are you baking today? | 2014

My neighbor uses the same recipe as Andy's SO, and the roll is always moist and delicious. She gives them out for Christmas some years. I'm hoping this might be one of those years!

It's delicious. Everyone we serve it to agrees. The only modification I made was to halve the mount of cloves. I hate cloves.

I haven't baked anything since I moved into my new house last year (June) so a few days ago I baked my rosemary-onion focaccia recipe. I'm still enjoying it! It also has a fair amount of cheese: usually Parmesan.

The recipe is basic focaccia or as far as that goes basic anything. Bread flour, honey or sugar and water mixed with yeast, oil, salt, and for my specialty sauteed onions and lightly mortared rosemary leaves, then cheese somewhere between a few punch-downs. Drizzle some EVOO over the top before baking and a light sprinkling of granular sea salt, and optional Parmesan a few minutes before baking is done.

Just pulled two fragrant baguettes out of the oven. They turned out perfectly, golden and crusty. Perfect for tonight's meal.
