Have I ever told you I love pumpkin? Anything pumpkin. Pies, cakes, cookies, you name it. One of my particular pumpkin faves is this delightful little pumpkin roll. It is easier than you think to make it, and the end result is SO good.
Place parchment or waxed paper in a jelly roll pan and generously spray with Pam.
Measure the dry ingredients in a medium sized bowl and set aside.
Make sure it is a generous amount so the cake won't stick.
Beat eggs and sugar until combined and thick.
The color will be light.
Beat in the pumpkin puree.
Stir in the dry ingredients.
Pour into greased pan and spread evenly.
Cook for about 14 minutes. Should be golden brown.
Immediately turn pan over on powdered sugar-sprinkled towel.
Carefully peel off parchment paper.
Roll warm cake in towel.
Should look a little like this.
Let cool on wire rack.
Meanwhile, prepare filling.
When cake is cool, carefully unroll the towel.
Spread with filling.
Don't worry about going all the way to the edge. When you roll it up, the filling spreads out.
Roll cake tightly.
Looks a little like this.
Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least an hour.
When ready to serve, sprinkle with powdered sugar and cut into desired sized slices.
