I tried this recipe for a very big dinner partty. This recipe was a big disappointment. First of all, when I reviewed the recipe the 3 eggs for 1 cup of flour didn't sound right, but I went along. Big mistake. Once the cake came out of the oven it smelled horrible...very fishy smell. But I said ok, it might taste alright. I rolled my cake as directed and proceeded to make my filling. Next mistake, the recipe tells you to add 1 cup skim milk to the pudding powder, but it fails to tell you it needs to be warm milk otherwise your pudding will not thicken. I figured it out the hard way and ended up heating the pudding after I poured in the cold milk. Next I unwrapped the rolled cake after 45 minutes and it was tough and chewy and once I added the filling and took a bite, it was so horrible I can't even describe, the cake was chewy and the presentation was horrible and it weighed like a roll of sausage, that's how heavy it was, nothing like a cake should look taste or feel. I am so disappointed in this recipe. I normally don't make things without reading the reviews. I just realized that this recipe has no reviews. That says a lot. Betty Crocker needs to remove this recipe from the web altogether. Prior to making this roll, I baked Duncan Hines red velvet cup cakes and Duncan Hines devils food cake the same morning, so moist and delicious (so those of you who might have thought there was something wrong with my eggs) that was not the case. Thank you.
