Pumpkin Roll

This is my favorite pumpkin recipe.  My friends are always amazed by it and think it is really hard to make, but it really isn’t once you get the hang of it.  Here is a step by step guide to simplify making it.  They are so popular that I sell them during the holidays.  Thanks to my wonderful Aunt Debbie for getting me started making this lovely dessert years ago. 

Cake:                                                                            Filing:

3 eggs                                                                          2 tbsp butter
1 tsp soda                                                                  1 8 oz pkg cream cheese
¼ tsp cinnamon                                                         1 tsp vanilla
¼ tsp nutmeg                                                              1 c powdered sugar
1 c sugar
2/3 c pumpkin
¾ c self-rising flour
1 cup chopped walnuts

1.  Mix eggs, soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, sugar, pumpkin and flour.  Grease a 10x15-inch bar pan and line with wax paper.  Spread cake mixture on wax paper and sprinkle with walnuts.

2.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until brown.  Lay a hand towel flat on the counter and sprinkle well with powdered sugar.  Turn onto the towel with wax paper side up.

3.  Roll it from left to right and let is sit until cool. 

4.  Unroll and peel the wax paper off slowly, holding the left corner with your left hand and pulling the wax paper with your right.  (reverse for lefties)

5.  Spread the filling mixture completely across. 

 6.  Re-roll  

7.  Chill in the refrigerator.  It is easier to slice once it is cold.  

 Store in the refrigerator.  Enjoy!
