(THIS IS THE BEST FALL DESSERT SERIOUSLY YOU HAVE TO TRY IT. IT IS ADDICTIVE.)

- BAKE for 13 to 15 minutes or until top of cake springs back when touched. (If using a dark-colored pan, begin checking for doneness at 11 minutes.) Immediately loosen and turn cake onto prepared towel. Carefully peel off paper. Roll up cake and towel together, starting with narrow end. Cool on wire rack.
