Leslie's Pumpkin Roll
Loving true scrap 5!! I had a request to post my pumpkin roll recipe. So here it is:
Leslie’s Pumpkin Roll
For the Cake:
3/4 cup flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. cloves
1/4 tsp. salt
3 large eggs
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup pureed pumpkin
1-8 oz. pkg. creme cheese, softened
1 cup powdered sugar
6 tbsp. softened butter
1 tsp. vanilla
For cake: preheat oven to 375. line 15x10 in. jelly roll pan, with parchment and grease. I use coconut oil but any oil or butter will work. Sprinkle a thin kitchen towel with powdered sugar, or you can use parchment paper.
Combine dry ingredients except sugars in a small bowl. Beat eggs and sugar in a large mixer bowl until thick. Beat in pumpkin. Stir in flour mixture. Spread evenly into prepared parchment in pan. If you would like, sprinkle with nuts.
Bake for 13-15 minutes or until top of cake springs back when touched. Immediately loosen and turn cake onto prepared towel. Carefully peel off paper and roll up cake and towel together, starting with narrow end. Cool on wire rack.
For filling: beat filling ingredients together.
When cake is cool, carefully unroll the cake. Then spread cream cheese mixture carefully on cake. Re-roll cake, without towel. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least an hour. Sprinkle with powered sugar before serving, if desired.
This sounds so delish! Can't wait to try: ) Exhausted and cross-eyed from an amazing TS5, so might have to wait til tomorrow!
