Pumpkin Roll

I've been on dessert overload the past couple weeks.
Which means it's time I should share some with you. We've been indulging in pumpkin, ginger and fall-ish delights.

For Sunday dinner, we had a cream cheese pumpkin roll for dessert.
This was my first "roll"...and it wasn't nearly as hard as I thought it was going to be.
I found the recipe on Tasty Kitchen (my "go to" recipe site run by PW).



Pumpkin Roll
  • ¾ cups Flour
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Powder
  • ½ teaspoons Baking Soda
  • ½ teaspoons Cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoons Cloves
  • ¼ teaspoons Salt
  • 3 whole Eggs
  • 1 cup White Sugar
  • ⅔ cups Pure Pumpkin (I Always Use Libby's.)
  • Powdered Sugar (for Powdering Your Kitchen Towel)
  • _____
  • 8 ounces, weight Cream Cheese, softened
  • 6 Tablespoons Butter, Softened
  • 1 cup Sifted Powdered Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract

Preparation Instructions

For Cake: Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Grease a 17 x 11 jelly-roll pan. Line with wax paper; grease and flour paper. Sprinkle a thin, cotton kitchen towel with powdered sugar.

In a bowl combine: flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt.

In a separate bowl mix the eggs and white sugar until thick. Beat in the canned pumpkin. Stir into the flour mixture. Spread evenly into prepared pan.

Bake for 13 minutes or until top of cake springs back when touched. Immediately turn cake onto prepared towel. Slowly peel off the wax paper. Roll the cake up in the towel, starting with narrow end. Cool on a wire rack.

For the filling: Beat cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar, and vanilla in a bowl until smooth. Unroll cake and remove towel. Spread cream cheese filling over cake. Reroll cake. Store in a container with a lid. Keep refrigerated.

This roll right away it’s better when it’s been refrigerated for at least an hour. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving.
