1/2 tsp. baking powder

1/2 tsp. baking soda

1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon

1/2 tsp. ground cloves

1/4 tsp. salt

3 large eggs

1 c. sugar

2/3 c. canned pumpkin

1 c. chopped walnuts(optional)


1 pkg. (8oz) cream cheese

1 c. sifted powdered sugar

6 T. butter or margerine, softened

1 tsp. vanilla extract

Powdered sugar

For cake: Preheat oven to 375* F. Grease cookie sheet style pan. 3/4 to 1/2 in deep. Line with wax paper. Grease and flour paper. Sprinkle a thin, cotton kitchen towel with powdered sugar.

Combine flour, Baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt in small bowl. Beat eggs and suger in large mixer bowl until thick. Beat in pumpkin. Stir in flour mixture. Spread evenly into prepared pan. (Sprinkle with nuts-optional)

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. Roll up cake and towel together, starting with narrow end. Cool on wire rack.

For filling: Beat cream cheese, powdered sugar, butter, and vanilla extract in smaller mixing bowl until smooth. Carefully unroll cake; remove towel. Spread cream cheese mixture over cake. Reroll cake. Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least one hour. Sprinkle with powdered sugar before serving, if desired.

So I was getting ready to make pumpkin cookies, Which I love! When I noticed that the back of the pumpkin can label had a bunch of recipes. I've always wanted to try and make a pumpkin roll but I've always heard that it's really hard and hardly ever works out. Well I followed the directions to a T and it worked out perfectly and tasted so good! When you make this, make sure you sprinkle enough powdered sugar on the towel and you actually use wax paper, It makes a BIG difference!

Pin It!
