Tasty Tuesday: Pumpkin Deliciousness

Here's a pumpkin roll recipe from my grandmother... she fixes several & freezes them. SO good with coffee!

The Ingredients for roll:

  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp nutmeg
  • 1 tsp ginger
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • powdered sugar (to keep cake from sticking & to dust on top)

The Ingredients for cream cheese filling:

  • 1 cup powdered sugar
  • 1 8-oz package cream cheese, softened
  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

The Directions:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large bowl, mix eggs, sugar, pumpkin & lemon juice.  In a separate bowl, mix flour, salt, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger & nutmeg.

Add the egg mixture to the flour mixture & stir until well-blended.

Spray a baking sheet with cooking spray (the size of baking sheet can vary, but my grandma uses one that is 10.5" by 15"). Pour the batter onto baking sheet & spread evenly.

Bake 12-15 mins until toothpick comes out clean. Meanwhile, sprinkle a clean kitchen towel liberally with powdered sugar.

After cake is baked, flip it onto the kitchen towel. Starting at one end, roll the towel & cake up into a roll & let it cool for 30-40 mins.

To make the filling, mix the cream cheese, powdered sugar, butter & vanilla extract & blend well.

After the cake has cooled, unroll it & spread the filling evenly. Roll back up (without the towel). Wrap in plastic wrap & chill for at least an hour to allow filling to firm up.

Dust roll with powdered sugar before serving.


And do you need a hot drink to go along with your pumpkin roll? Try this Thanksgiving-y recipe shared by Margaret! It's like hot chocolate, but with pumpkin. And without chocolate. Which makes it "pumpkin NOT chocolate." 

The Ingredients:

  • 1 cup milk
  • 2 tbsp pumpkin puree
  • 2 tsp sugar/splenda or 5 drops liquid stevia or 1-2 tsp honey
  • dash of cinnamon
  • dash of grated nutmeg
  • dash of ginger
  • splash of vanilla 

The Directions:

Place all ingredients in a small saucepan on the stove. Whisk together over medium heat until blended & steaming. 

Use an immersion blender* to blend until smooth & creamy.  

*If you're like me, you don't have an immersion blender. If you don't, just stir, stir, stir until it's as smooth & creamy as possible. :)
