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
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."
- 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
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. :)
