It's pumpkin roll season and I get lots of requests for this autumn dessert. (Mostly from my father-in-law) My recipe is very basic really - a simple pumpkin cake with a swirl of cream cheese frosting. It's not hard to make but it does take some practice to get it rolled, unrolled and rerolled. Don't get frustrated if it doesn't come out perfectly keep trying - practice makes perfect.
¾ cup flour Filling
½ teaspoon baking powder 8 ounces cream cheese
½ teaspoon baking soda 1 cup powdered sugar
½ teaspoon cinnamon 6 Tablespoons butter
½ teaspoon cloves 1 teaspoon vanilla
¼ teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
2/3 cup pumpkin
Cool cake completely. Beat filling ingredients.
My pumpkin roll is in the freezer - ready to be pulled out on Thanksgiving Day. I will take it out of the freezer and slice it's while still frozen which makes for cleaner and neater slices.
Today I was able to check another item off of my Thanksgiving menu. It really takes the stress out of Thanksgiving dinner when I have some of the food prepared ahead of time.
I am always on the lookout for make ahead ideas for Thanksgiving. Send me a comment with your best time saving Thanksgiving idea.
