Pumpkin Pecan Cake Roll

Comment on this recipe

You can use this cake roll during the holiday for a change of pace from the traditional pumpkin pie. Very moist spice cake.

Ingredients

3 eggs
1 cup sugar
3/4 cup all purpose flour
3/4 cup cooked or canned pumpkin
1-1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 cup finely chopped pecans
Confectioners' sugar
Filling:
6 ounces cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup confectioners' sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla

Instructions

Line a greased 15x10x1-inch baking pan with waxed paper and grease the paper; set aside. In a mixing bowl, beat eggs for five minutes. Add the sugar, flour, pumpkin, cinnamon, baking powder, ginger, salt and nutmeg; mix well. Add lemon juice. Spread batter evenly in prepared pan; sprinkle with pecans. Bake at 375 degrees for 15 minutes or until cake springs back when lightly touched. Cool for five minutes. Turn cake onto a kitchen towel dusted with confectioners' sugar. Gently peel off waxed paper. Roll up cake in towel, jelly-roll style, starting with a short side. Cool completely on wire rack. In a mixing bowl, combine the filling ingredients; beat until smooth. Unroll cake; spread filling over cake to within 1/2 inch of edges. Roll up again; place seam side down on a serving platter. Cover and refrigerate for at least one hour before serving. Makes 12 servings.
