pumpkin roll

Well, Thanksgiving is technically over, but that does NOT mean that 1) we stop being thankful, or 2) everything pumpkin has to go away until next year.  Nosiree.  I'll be snacking on pumpkin things until Christmas, and probably even after that.

Which is why, this:
And here is the recipe.

45 mins
13 mins
60 mins

Cast of characters:

For the cake:

1/4 cup powdered sugar (to sprinkle on the towel)
3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/4 teaspoon salt
3 large eggs
1 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup pumpkin (I used Libby's)

For the filling:

1 package (8 oz.) cream cheese, at room temperature
1 cup sifted powdered sugar
6 tablespoons softened butter
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Powdered sugar for decoration

You will also need a 15 x 10-inch cookie sheet / jelly-roll pan, wax paper, coconut oil, and a cotton baking towel.

First, we make the cake.

Preheat the oven to 375° F.  
Grease 15 x 10-inch jelly-roll pan with coconut oil,

line with wax paper, pressing it down into the corners, and grease again.
Sprinkle it with flour.

Lay out a thin, cotton, kitchen towel, and sprinkle it with powdered sugar.

Combine flour,

baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves, and salt in a small bowl.

In a separate bowl, beat eggs and granulated sugar until thick.

Beat in pumpkin.

Stir in flour mixture until smooth and thick.

Spread evenly into the prepared (greased and floured) pan.

Bake for 13-14 minutes, or until the top of the cake springs back when touched.  (We started checking for doneness around 11 minutes, and it was all set.)

When baked, immediately turn cake on top of prepared (sugared) towel, and carefully peel off paper.

Roll up the cake and towel together, starting with the narrow end, twisting the ends of the towel like a big tootsie roll (but be careful not to squeeze it too tightly, so the cake is broken).
Cool on a wire rack.
While the cake is cooling, we make the filling.

Beat the cream cheese,
 one cup of powdered sugar,
 and vanilla extract, 
 until smooth.

When sure the cake is cool, carefully unroll it.

Spread the cream cheese mixture over the cake,

 and re-roll it, this time without the towel.
If you so desire, sprinkle the outside with powdered sugar, slice off the ends to clean them up a bit, and take a pretty picture.

Bon app├ętit!

  2. Uhh...YUM! (I approve of the coconut oil go girl ;) )

    1. WOOOOOT! Coconut oil is my go-to for just about everything. We try not to use butter in our place, so we use it in place of that.

      It's also a good replacement for Aloe Vera... which I learned this past summer after being burnt to a crisp in Grand Haven.
