Awesome Pumpkin Roll

Pumpkin Roll!!

Today was a 'surprise' bbq for my soon to be hubby. I thought about making a birthday cake. I decided that was bit boring and wanted to do something fun. Being October and wanting to do something fun, yummy and festive, I went with something pumpkin! My mother made this great pumpkin roll last year, and Jack loved it. So, I decide to give it a whirl. 

First, take a 10x15 pan. Grease the pan and place wax paper over it. Grease the wax paper and sprinkle with flour.

Combine flour, spices, and other dry ingredients in a small bowl.

Combine eggs and sugars in a larger bowl.

Add pumpkin to the bowl with the mixed eggs & sugar.

Then add the dry ingredients to the bigger bowl. Mix well.

Pour the ingredients onto the pan with the wax paper. Spread evenly. Then place in the oven for about 11-13 minutes. When you touch the cake and it springs back, it is ready!

Next, take a cloth towel and cover with powder sugar. Make sure you sprinkle enough on the towel, otherwise the cake will stick to it! (trust me I know!) When the cake is done in the oven, take pan and flip over onto the cloth towel. Carefully peel the wax paper off the cake. 

Next, roll the cloth with the cake. Let sit until cool, about 15 minutes. While waiting for this to cool, next make the cream cheese filling. After the cake sits for 15 minutes, carefully unroll the cake, and spread cream cheese filling evenly over the cake. Re-roll cake a wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate until ready to serve. Sprinkle powered sugar before serving!

All finished. It's delicious!
