Her technique insures a pleasant moist cake that simply rolls.

Gluten-Free Flour

This gluten-free pumpkin roll was made with Pillsbury gluten-free flour. It’s a cup-for-cup all-purpose gluten-free rice flour mix and already has the xanthan gum and starches included.

So be sure to examine the components of your gluten-free flour in order to not add any further xanthan gum to your flour if it already contains it. If you happen to do, you’re going to get a gummy cake!
