Pumpkin Roll

Yes, more pumpkin. We love to make pumpkin things in the fall. Last night I asked John what he wanted for a treat and he said "pumpkin roll". An hour later we were eating it. I used the first recipe that came up when I googled "pumpkin roll" and it was easy and delicious. I'll definitely be making it again... this week.

For cake, mix together:
3/4 c. flour
1/2 t. baking soda
1/2 t. baking power
1/2 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. cloves
1/4 t. salt
Beat together:
3 large eggs
1 c. sugar
2/3 c. pumpkin

Stir in flour mixture. Spread cake batter on a jelly roll pan greased, covered in waxed paper, and greased and floured. Bake at 375 for 13-15 minutes or until cake springs back when touched. Turn cake onto a kitchen towel sprinkled with 1/4 c. powdered sugar. Peel off waxed paper and roll cake up with towel. Set on cooling rack to cool.

Update: I have tried just rolling the warm roll in the waxed paper, unrolling to add filling, then rolling and peeling.  It worked fine.

For filling, beat until smooth:
1 package light cream cheese
4 T. butter
1 c. powdered sugar
1 t. vanilla

Unroll cake and spread with cream cheese mixture. Roll cake up. Recipe said to wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate 1 hour, but ate it warm immediately.

Oh this is my faaavorite treat to eat in the fall. I was planning on making it this week. It can also stay frozen for quite a few days and then thawed out in the refrigerator.
