Pumpkin and spice flavored roll cake with a cream cheese filling.


  • For the cake:
  • 3 large eggs

  • 1 cup granulated sugar

  • 2/3 cup canned pumpkin

  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

  • 3/4 cup all-purpose flour

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg

  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans

  • For the filling:
  • 1 cup powdered sugar

  • 1 (8-ounce) package of cream cheese, softened

  • 4 tablespoons margarine

  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • Garnish (optional)
  • powdered sugar


  • Make the cake:
  • Preheat oven to 375 F. In a large bowl, mix together eggs, sugar, pumpkin, and lemon juice. In a separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon. Add the flour mixture to the egg mixture and stir until well blended. Line a 10 1/2″ by 15″ cookie sheet with parchment paper, trimming excess. Pour the batter onto the cookie sheet, spread evenly. Sprinke with pecans. Bake 12-15 minutes or until it springs back when touched in the center. Prepare a linen towel heavily sprinkled with powdered sugar. After baking, turn the cookie sheet onto the towel, parchment paper side up. The cake should slide out onto the towel. Remove paper and roll up the cake into the towel. Cool 30-40 minutes.
  • Make the filling and assemble:
  • Stir together the powdered sugar, cream cheese, margarine and vanilla. Mix well. After the roll has cooled, unroll it and spread the filling evenly. Re-roll and, if desired, sift powdered sugar ovr the rolls for garnish. Slice for serving.
