Pumpkin is filled with many healthy benefits. Low in calories, filled with fiber, and the following vitamins: potassium, magnesium, zinc, and iron. Also, it contains beta-carotene which is considered to be an important antioxidant. In relation, the applesauce is present due to the lack of oil and butter in this recipe. The applesauce ingredient provides moisture for the cake without the fat like oil/ butter.

Due to a healthier lifestyle chance and my desire for sweets, I created this recipe from an altered version of the classic “pumpkin roll”. Fall is my favorite season and I love all of the comforting foods associated yet without the unhealthy components. After experimenting with the traditional pumpkin roll, I found it much easier to simply bake the cake into round cake pans instead of creating a pumpkin roll. Therefore, this recipe tastes similar to a pumpkin roll and looks elegant but…without the roll and much healthier!
(This recipe could be made into cupcakes too!)

Rated  by kyladee41 on 9/7/2008 This recipe sounds like a much easier, faster take on the traditional pumpkin roll. I'm absolutely planning to use this during the upcoming holiday season. I love everything pumpkin, and can't wait to try this recipe. Thanks for the recipe.
